peter simoník: who is watching you

four objects were created for this project (each by one author involved) and through the connection of four different insights the collection copies eclectic principles of architectural compositions of our cities. the exhibition thus also presents the need and options for combining of elements and concepts, which is common for scales of both city urbanism and interior design.

peter simoník: who is watching you object is an intersection of a simplistic approach to typology and of a citation of semantically loaded element of cityscapes – cctv camera. the conflict between systematic solution of urban criminality and breach into privacy leads to contemplation about the power of unlimited data recording. the objectivity of data themselves is in the end subjected to evaluation of individuals on the other side. lamp is to be used as a table lamp or can be hung on walls.

elena bolceková: cityscapes street pavements cover urban grounds and spread their patterns according to assigned spaces. rug tiles are created to enable similar approach for interiors and to mark our paths through house. the sophistication of pavement patterns projects the complexity of city grids to 2D of our floors. rug pattern is assembled from one type of tile only and it uses hexagonal grid to visualize its isometric world. felt used is 100% wool and though it simulates concrete pavement, it is warm to touch.

katarína beličková: urban eye product envisions typology of traffic mirrors. complicated morning situations are not only present at road crossings, they often catch us as early as we are about to leave home. mirror is fixed to a single beech leg and from its external analogy it borrows a round cap. it can be put against wall, hung to set stability but with the leg bearing the weight. as a freestanding object it is supported by a concrete cone.

štefan nosko: build me up bookcase is inspired by building architecture. it reflects the process and the impossibility of putting any end to this process, which is found in urban environment. this idea is applied to the interior, which undergoes similar never ending transformation in building one’s individual environment. the bookcase design is thus based upon a worker figurine, caught in the moment of finishing the ‘wall’ of this product.
