Opoczno - 135 years of passion for refined detail
In 1883, in the town of Opoczno, the story of one of the oldest and most popular ceramic ware brands in Poland began, under the name Firma Dziewulski i Bracia Lange (The Dziewulski & Lange Brothers). The brand has come far since those days with, along the way, its ceramic tiles used for decorating pre-War townhouses, and the skyscrapers of today. Fashions and trends may come and go, but Opoczno has never ceased guiding people in Poland in their search for answers to the ever-valid question: “How to live beautifully?”
Today, ceramic tiles are essential decorative cladding materials in almost any building project. It is hard to imagine any interior design without them. Their popularity stems firstly from their unique, characteristic combination of performance and aesthetic value. This makes ceramic tiles their place in the applied arts.
Opoczno, the forerunner of domestic ceramic designers, has long made products warranting a place in the Polish design hall of fame. A particularly fine example are the gems of interwar design which go by the name of “the Warsaw corsets” - small ceramic tiles with intricate, coquettish indentations and embossing. The colourful Warsaw Corsets decorated steps, floors and entire staircases in townhouses and tenements all over Poland. Even today, they are held in high esteem by connoisseurs of Polish ceramic ware and architecture — a testament to their enduring beauty.
Today, Opoczno provides products of superior quality, while enhancing the design of home interiors and other environments with ceramic ware collections rich in designs, textures and finishes inspired by natural beauty and the diversity of our planet. Opoczno ceramic tiles can be found in homes and public spaces in Poland and abroad, including Q22, one of Poland’s tallest skyscrapers, and The Gate Towers in Abu Dhabi. The success of the Opoczno brand is a result of collaboration with architects and designers, married to an abiding passion for finding ideas and inspirations which follow the latest design trends, meet customer expectations, and give life to the customers’ dreams of beautiful interiro spaces.
