“Wazony Florian” were created out of passion for plants and glass at Glass Atelier at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. The project as a whole has been made using a glass blowing technique by glassmakers from the Rona glass factory. The craft nature is what makes each vase different and unique. The vases with their forms are to evoke flower calyces.

A new approach to the design of jacquard fabric. The use of both sides of the fabric and long intricate patterns. Specially designed weaves made it possible to weave one black and white side and the other side in green and blue colour. Weaves also create the texture of the fabric, combine and divide the layers (a 3D effect).

“Stick” is a bookcase based on a pole construction. This piece of furniture consists of shelves wedging on four wooden legs that narrow with stepped slopes. Each of the six shelves has 4 drilled holes of different diameter so that they block at a different height of a leg. The piece of furniture may function both as a wall bookshelf and an openwork partition that divides space.

“PLANTATION” was developed in recognizing the potential use of abandoned drinking glasses. The result is a porcelain object that rests in a common glass, which allows the observation of the growing process of plants, both its stem as well its root. These unique porcelain components are suitable for growing plants and when turned upside down can be used as a mini greenhouse, ideal during seed germination.

“Patyczaki” are sets of elements that can be used for construction of furniture, appliances, installations. They offer the possibility to create an infinite number of structures thanks to their simple and universal design. Three pieces of furniture – table, bookshelf, lamp – are an example of the potential of the project.

A modern fluorescent LED lamp framed in wood and string is a recipe for “LED IT BE” – a lamp ideal for use in a variety of interior spaces.The fluorescent LED tube is powered as a standard light bulb and does not require frames or additional adapters. These are the main assumptions of the concept of the lamp, which change the existing patterns of thinking about the form of linear lighting and its technical purpose.

The inspiration for the “Cooling Grip” project was not only the need for cooling of the cyclist’s hands while driving, but also the phenomenon of natural ventilation used, for example, in architecture. The grip was designed in such a way as to use only natural wind energy, which gives the effect of aero-massage. The form of the device was achieved thanks to the 3D printing technology and flexible TPU 92A- 1 material, thanks to which the grip can maintain a firm contact with a handlebar.

EVO is a project inspired by tradition. The starting point was the Thonet chair model from the end of the 19th century. The bent backrest and unusual placement of legs became an inspiration for the current project. The number of legs was reduced during the design process, which resulted in a fresh form. The furniture’s distinguishing features are lightness and minimalism.

“Dress me up” is a diploma project which presents research results in the fields of clothing and furniture design. It brings these two fields together by offering a solution for cool evenings during which we need to wrap ourselves up and to feel warm. The end result is an armchair and a jerkin, which fulfil their functions perfectly when used together.
