Higher education institution for art studies was establised in Poznań in 1919 as School of Decorative Arts (Szkoła Zdobnicza). Initially it focused on handicraft. In 1921 the school was put under state government and renamed State School of Decorative Arts and the Art Industry(Państwowa Szkoła Sztuk Zdobniczych i Przemysłu Artystycznego).
Along with new name changes were introduced in school’s structure. In 1925 Karol Zyndram Maszkowski, a former student of Jan Matejko, became the director. The Faculty of Interior Designed was opened. In the inter-war years Zdobnicza (as the school was widely known) was the country’s leading institution educating artists and designers. It also integrated the small artistic community of Poznań.
