Konrad Grodzinski, Interior Designer, Łódź (Poland)
When Konrad Grodzinski picked up his three-year-old daughter from the kindergarten and said, “We are going home,” she replied, “Which home?” Last year, Grodzinski, his wife and two daughters moved four times. Why? That is his business: Grodzinski gives old, dilapidated houses a new lease on life. He renovates them, furnishes them down to the last, most minute detail, and lives in them – until he finds a buyer. Then the Grodzinskis move on to their next project. USM is an absolute favorite of his because, he says, the system is incredibly versatile and multi-functional. “Which makes it wonderful for moving and, if necessary, it can easily be stored in a small space.” Grodzinski’s last home was a red brick house in Łódź dating from the early 20th century, built by a German family before the First World War, when the city was known as the “Manchester of Poland” and the textile industry was booming. The house has been sold. The Grodzinskis are moving.
