New perspectives, approaches and morphologies were challenged by the group of postgraduated students of the Textile Design course at the University of Arts and Design of Cluj- Napoca, using mainly recycled and natural materials respectfull to ethical and ethical issues during research and fabrication process. Due to such creation paradigm, interdisciplinarity and fusion of art and design forms, new technologies, the fuzzy frontiers between art and other domains seem to be the most provocative dimensions of contemporary artistic research. Objects were made apliyng textile design methodology towards open transdisciplinary perspective.
The chair is interrogated in various meanings as utilitary artefact or symbolic object, promoter of own ethos, design product wearing the pattern of its time, shaped by material and technology. Each object was chosen at the down of its lifetime, revitalized and interpreted by use of textile materials or constructed textiles expression. In such ways art object and textile construction meet fascinating research field emerging new hybride conceptual and operational areas.
Re-design process is inclussively a tribute to all craftsmen, creators of material civilisation goods and formulate new categories of objects at the border of arts and design, accomplishing  needs and cariyng artistic expression in new contexts. Sometimes such productions are difficult to fit into former classifications such as art and design products, but rather relativized against wider artistic, social and cultural perspective.

ROMANIAN DESIGN WEEK APPEARANCE

2015 // Metamorph Chair by Emese Pop
The Metamorph Chair came in to being as a result of researching forms and structures to create a textile effect using alternative techniques and materials. She prefers rounded and wavy forms, creating a balance between the antique and the modern.
The research has focused on identifying alternatives and new possibilities for construction and expression in contemporary textiles, and also on the renewal of textile expression by using certain unconventional materials.

2015 // Gravity Chair by Vilhelmina Kuron
An old chair that lost its usefulness and personality proved to be a very challenging topic, as its aesthetically value turns into a new object situated between design and art, but still affiliated to the textile universe. The wooden structure has been cleaned and the chosen fabric was natural unspun wool that develops a harmonious relationship with the color and fiber of the wood. The chair loses its day-to-day usefulness. By changing it’s usual standpoint, with it being hung overturned, it creates a game of layout and makes the viewer think about what it may have looked like in its initial position.
