ROMANIAN DESIGN WEEK APPEARANCES

2018 // OO Eyewear - 2018 collection
OO Eyewear 2018 Collection brings in foreground the design which keeps the ludic spirit of the brand and creates new context for the relationship between material and shape, between face physiognomy and the object that accessorizes it, between material poetry and the purism of shape.

OO Eyewear mixes contemporary technics of production and design with traditional ones in a creative way, introducing in the present context the natural materials. The experimental shapes, the mix of materials and textures continue the brand concept and in the same time creates new ways of expression for one of the most used-up accessory. OO Eyewear is a Romanian brand which engages local resources, the whole process from idea to production is made in Transylvania.

2018 // Hopa Bridge
Hopa! Is about connecting the pedestrian path on Somes’s bank. Designing a bridge above the sewage canal that is connected with the river (but cut off the organic circulation), seemed to be a logical gesture. Hopa! is a bridge that not only connects the pedestrian way but also creates areas for seating, leisure and socializing through the presence of stairs from wood that follow the geometry of the terrain and cover the sewage hole.
The relationship with Somes river is stimulated by the presence of temporary interventions and they cultivates the interest for spending the spare time in the proximity of the river and also integrates Somes in city’s vivid life.

2017 // FRESCO
The three pieces from Fresco Furniture collection are marking the spacial dimension by using linear and brutal elements, that are also repetitional and planar, made from metal and wood. Diagonal Chair, Fresco Table and the Piramid shelves are designed studying the relation between volume and anti-volume, between solid and void through highlining with thin lines shapes that are in balance. 


2016 // The Headphones

"The wood headphones" is a project about technology covered in wood. The project passed through many phases on its way and they developed many models. The last one - "0.5- the headphones" is made only from beech, oak and bamboo wood and it is adjustable.
The wood headphones is a project that they started in spring of 2013, but it has its roots in our heads a long time before. The basis was their love for music and aesthetics: they wanted  to make some headphones which look and sound good. To make them only from wood, it sounded like a good idea for them because they knew that it's a material with very good acoustics qualities and more than that they felt like there is a fine irony to wear on your ears some technology covered in wood.
