CSIKI-CSUKI During this project we were working in groups. Each group got assigned a place in Budapest and a fictional character. Our group got Ráday street and a 68 year old grandmother and her 6 year old granddaughter. After we researched the occurent topics together everyone designed an installation or an object for the assigned public space and fictional characters


individually. My design was an interactive bench, which is an installation, a game and a place to rest at the same time. The base of the bench is concrete, the moveable parts are made from a light yet durable plastic so as to enable everyone to move them. Moving these pieces is part of the game element and the space that is created by moving them can function as a tunnel or a hiding place. The moveable parts are on a rubber railing, which allows them to stay as placed while also preventing them from falling unexpectedly. The bench is built from indvidual vertical sections so it may fit in a variety of places depending on the available area.

ORDINA The stool project was an experimental design course. Our task was to create a stool that could be assembled in an interesting way. We experimented with different materials and their combinatons, different structres and new concepts. The Ordina is not an ordinary stool it also functions as a puzzle. It is a modern a twist on


the Hungarian folk-tradition of “lucaszéke”. Said tradition involves the creation of a stool made from 13 different types of wood. It requires the craftsman to work tenaciously in order to achieve order in their soul and be able to complete the chair. In our frantic, stressful modern lives too, the activity of solving a puzzle can bring about a sense of accomplishment and peace of mind. Like its inspiration the Ordina is also comprised of 13 pieces of wood held together by 8 metal rods. It contains both traditional and modern elements, clean and rough characteristics, which are in stark contrast to each other. This duality gives the stool its physical and creative balance.

PENGUIN PACKAGE During this two week project, we had to design a logic or construction game. We wanted to make a game that is associative, simple yet playful. Our final design comes in an envelope, which contains flat penguins, icebergs and instructions. You can see a little story written


on the back of the envelope: „One day some penguins from the South Pole decided they wanted to see the World. Unfortunately they have got a big problem…they can’t fly. After some time the penguins came up with a brilliant idea. They should mail themselves! So they packed up a few icebergs to rest on and to build huge towers with so they can see all the wonderful sights the World can offer.” Once you open the envelope, you can simply fold the penguins and start playing. When you finished the game, you can extend the envelope and store the penguins and icebergs that way until the next time you want to play.

CSACSI - The step stool for your feet The starting point of my design was a struggle that many of us short people face on a daily basis. Usually, when we use a regular step stool, we constantly have to rearrange it to get the things we want to reach. Wouldn’t it be easier if we could just take a few steps with the


stool itself? When I was trying to find a form for my idea, my main goal was to make it simple, easy to understand and easy to use. The asymmetry of the straps enables them to fit the shape of feet better and also clarifies that it’s a pair of items. The curvature at the bottom of the stool helps taking steps and works in sync with the dynamics of walking. Consultants: András Kerékgyártó, István Juhász

During this project our task was to design smart storage systems for a hungarian vending machine manufacturer, IVM. We decided to make our design best for office and higher education as the company wanted to expand to that direction. Our final design is a modular system where the modularity is not only used for increased storage functionality but also as a tool for shaping the environment’s character and mood. The storage „boxes” can be connected in many different positions so they can form different structures. The structures could be like any other clean and organised smart storage system or they could also be


a playful space divider. We also built in two unique features based on functional needs we found while reasearching existing systems and the environments. First one is a transportable renting unit which can be used if the user needs multiple rented assets from the machine for work. They can lock this unit back in the machine while they go for lunch or a break so they don’t have to take back and rent everything again. The second feature helps communication between the user and the machine with light. When a user decides what kind of item they would like to rent the „box” containing that item lights up, so it’s easier to find. We would also use the colour of the light to give other informations, for example the boxes containing items that need maintenance would light up with red.

I started going to an art school nine years ago and it was one of the best decisions of my life. I still love drawing and painting and try to practice as much as possible. Over the years


I have experimented with a variety of techniques and platforms, from pastell drawing to etching to digital art. I’m always working on something, which means there are multiple long term projects in progress at all times. I also always keep a sketchbook handy so if I feel like drawing or painting I can do so on the go. Tutors: Csaba Szegedi, Frigyes Kleinhappel, Gergő Lengyel, Zoltán Arató

A few years ago I started making small sculptures in my freetime. I tried working with different materials such as clay, soapstone, wax and paper. I really enjoyed the new materials and challenges I had to face. For example turning a complicated organic structure like a skull into a paper sculpture was quite hard at first but after a while I started enjoying it,


so I made one for every skull I accuired. One of my favourite materials to work with is clay. In university I got a chance to create two bigger clay sculptures from life. First we made an enlarged deer skull then a torso. I hope I will be able to create more sculptures like these in the future. Tutors: Gergล‘ Lengyel, Pรกl Jรณzsa, Zoltรกn Aratรณ

Making miniatures is a fairly new hobby I picked up but I’ve already spent many-many hours


on these small creatures. I usually modify already existing figures, but I’ve made things completey from scratch too. I’ve also made moulds and casted silicoe and synthetic resin for parts and duplicating. I have many plans for the future for example making dioramas and custom busts.

3D models of household items I made as practice. In the near future I would like to learn digital sculpting as well. I’m also currently learning how to make animations in Keyshot and


After Effects. Models were made in Rhino and rendered in Keyshot. Tutor: IstvĂĄn Keszei
