A Kitchen Budapest és a WAMP 2011 tavaszán pályázatot hirdetett fiatal, hazai tervezőknek workshopon való részvételre és közösen megalkotandó projektre. A workshop megtartására Superflux nemzetközi design stúdió két tervezőjét, Anab Jaint és Jon Ardent kérte fel.

A workshop elsődleges célja az volt, hogy rámutasson, napjainkban, a gazdasági válság idején, a designerek szerepe hogyan lehet több annál, mint, hogy már létező szolgáltatásokhoz és termékekhez hozzáadott értéket adjanak. Hogyan tudnánk a gyors modellezés, a digitális és bio hackelés, illetve a DYI (do it yourself – csináld magad) mozgalom segítségével új vállalkozásokat indítani? Mi történne, ha a vállalati érdekek helyett a közösségi érdekeket szolgálnánk? Mi lenne, ha a szabad piac helyett a szürke gazdaság és az utcai kultúra állna a tervezés fókuszában? A workshop alatt elkészült és utána kiválasztott négy projekttervet bemutatták a TENt London design kiállításon, amelyek közül egyet kipróbálható prototípusig fejlesztették.

I’m a graduate student at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, where I’m attending Industrial Designer MSC right now. Nowadays I work on my Thesis, the topic of which is designing kitchen – and also a baby – scale for blind people. As industrial designer my motivation is to search for and solve real-world problems. What really interest me nowadays are also a global problems:
» environment-conscious living and thinking – to make people think and take action
» alternative energy sources – e.g.: energy harvesting of children/animal motion
» and Design-For-All mentality (for all: children, adults, blinds, etc.)

I am graduating from MOME fashion department this summer. I believe that making the world a better place starts with very small steps, like a dress that makes you feel pretty or an object that makes you smile. I believe in form fun and function. I love to watch the clouds on a hot summer day, and I love to lie down in the snow and I love to eat things I never tasted before.

Sári Kele designer, product designer (BME)
I’ve studied aesthetics, anthropology, architecture, photography before becoming a designer. I’m still driven by curiosity, so I am always experimenting and mixing disciplines in my work. I’m in a constant process of repairing objects and altering my surroundings. I love riding my bike even in the craziest Budapest traffic. I think about Barcelona ever since I’ve lived there a bit.

I have graduated at Sopron AMI, and I finished this year the Moholy Design Grant with a lamp collection.

I like the birds. I like Rome and Budapest. I like the wind on the coast. I like laughing with my friends. I like to play the acoustic guitar, to hear his sound.

Anna Vidovszky designer
“I’m a product designer who love to make sushi, but can hardly keep a plant alive. If I could travel by train everywhere I would, I often find an old factory building more inspiring than an exhibition. And I was once told by a guru, that I’m clearly creative because of my weirdly long toes!”

Play4Power egy játszótéri mókuskerék, amely a tervezők energiatermelő egységgel láttak el. Így a Play4Power a gyerekek játszótéren levezetett energiáit elektromos árammá alakítja. A TENT London kiállításra egy valódi játszótéri mókuskerékre installálva mutattuk be az eszközt, interaktív módon, valós helyzetben demonstrálva a koncepciót.
A Watergate projekt alapötlete, egy olyan hajó kialakítása, amely a Duna mentén lévő adómentes zónákban köt ki, és amely kreatív startupoknak ad otthont és lehetőséget arra, hogy megvalósítsák üzleti-­, és vállalkozási ötleteiket. A hajón egy menedzsment iroda is üzemelne, jogi és kommunikációs segítséget nyújtva a start-­upoknak.
Az Alguna projekt fő koncepciója vízinövények termelésén alapuló gerilla kertek kialakítása a Duna menti elhagyott stégek környékén, amelyek akár ideiglenes vízi éttermekké is alakíthatóak.
A Free Flow egy Duna mentén fogható, kalóz rádióállomás, amely elsősorban a helyi közösségek, civil szervezetek alternatív kommunikációs platformjaként működne, ugyanakkor egyértelmően a jelenlegi médiatörvény és kommunikációs intézkedések elleni demonstratív fellépés inspirálta. Egy olyan közösséget hivatott kialakítani, illetve kiszolgálni, akik ellenzik a mostani média törvényt és kommunikációs intézkedéseket
