    Viktor Tabiš diploma work 2022

    Viktor Tabiš

    Diploma work at the Studio of Experimental Design

    The project entitles Original resembles a production line and offers an insight into the original technology of porcelain casting. While the 3D printer continuously produces blanks for plaster casting, the hydraulic press in the next stage breaks the plaster parts of the mold, introducing an element of chance into the process. The customer participates in the individualization of the casting mold by choosing the order of individual elements and makes it original.

    The exhibited project was created within the framework of the KEGA project „stARTup, nová koncepcia výučby autorského dizajnu s ohľadom na uplatniteľnosť absolventov v praxi“ č. 008VŠVU-4/2021.

    Jana Vaterková diploma work 2022

    Jana Vaterková

    Diploma work, Textile

    Geometry, line, work with different shades of one color reflect my personality, the character of the architecture and create a relationship with the user. The ambition of "Puder" is to highlight original textiles through a collection of useful objects that are represented in textile creation through tapestries, carpets and clothing. Utility items point to quality in material selection and craftsmanship. I find variability in the technological solution and aesthetics of the object, which can be adapted so that it can be combined in different ways within the environment and mood of the user. Puder emphasizes timeliness, emphasizes functionality and creates a fusion of different styles.
