Here’s an article about his design work; and here’s a picture of a Soltan relative sitting on one of the benches in Warsaw.

Update: UD thanks a reader for this link to an English-language article about Jerzy Soltan’s benches.

    Sitting, not standing, Aunt Augusta.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Andrzej: I struggled with that. Initially wrote sitting, changed to standing… I’ll correct it…

  3. Andrzej Says:

    No problem at all! But to be perfectly honest and precise I’m not sitting in front of them, just on one of them 🙂

  4. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Corrected it again, and I think I got it right.

  5. Polish Peter Says:

    I do recall seeing the original benches in the Warsaw Center City station in the 1970s. For readers who don’t read Polish and can’t get past the Gazeta Wyborcza paywall, here’s a nice piece in English:

    Polish Peter: Many thanks! I’ll put the link in the post. UD

  7. Andrzej Says:

    Thank you! Now history will know the true story of how I rested on uncle Jerzy’s bench.
