DESCRIPTION


MUPDS serves the visual design and planning of enterprises and brands, and also emphasizes the observation of the society and the world, among which “aesthetic education” is a topic we have always been concerned about. The brand puts forward the concept of “sustainable design”, to disseminate “esthetics” in different ways at different stages, so that aesthetics can slowly penetrate into people’s lives, which, in the hope that through the sustainable cycle of dissemination of aesthetics throughout the whole period of time, can enhance the aesthetics of the society and the development of creativity. The MUPDS Esthetics Lab. was born from this.
Its shape of space is taken from the traditional Chinese game of tangram. From ancient times to the present day, across ages and time, the integration of tangrams is a continuation of people’s creativity and imagination, as well as an inheritance of people’s wisdom from the past. The aesthetic experience space of MUPDS consists of seven parts, which are divided into seven different spaces according to different ages. MUPDS utilizes the geometric principle of complementing each other in and out, so that the seven spaces can be freely combined, which is meant to express the infinite imagination and creativity of human beings. Such a design is also adaptable to different public spaces in the living community. The logo of the MUPDS Esthetics Lab. is based on the basic form of a tangram. Seven parts and more than 1,600 combinations give the logo more imaginary space and a greater sense of freedom, and can be flexibly adapted to different environments and venues, thus reflecting MUPDS Esthetics Lab.’s philosophy of “Freedom of Design, Freedom of Esthetics”.
Additionally, the posters for the MUPDS Esthetics Lab. vary and are divided into two series. Each series consists of 8 individual posters, and each poster represents a space. The posters can be used individually or combined to promote the whole. When combined together, they form a space plan of the MUPDS Esthetics Lab. The peripherals launched offline, such as postcards, 3D tangram toys, activity bracelet and T-shirts, emphasizes interaction and connection between the public and the artworks. These items are intended to help people to awaken the experience of life, to feel the good and the ugly, and to pursue their own desired future and life.

This low-key yet luxurious French-style curtain takes butterflies and roses, which are symbols of romance, as its core design elements. By virtue of exquisite craftsmanship and high-quality fabrics, the product makes itself a synthesis of art and functionality, contributing to a pleasant and comfortable home space for users.
The curtain draws inspiration from the enchanting scene of butterflies fluttering among roses. Its valance is made of the rose pink fabric, and features lifelike butterflies through embroidery technique. The main body of the curtain, based on the jacquard fabric, adopts jacquard weaving technique to create gorgeous roses in various poses and with a three-dimensional visual effect; the rose patterns shimmers under the light, adding a dynamic sense to the space. The soft and modern color scheme of rose pink and lilac gray leads to a warm, stylish home atmosphere.
In addition to its impressive design aesthetics, the curtain also excels in functionality. The design team has introduced physical antimicrobial technology into the fabrics, which allows for an antibacterial rate up to a 99% and can effectively inhibit the growth and proliferation of over 650 harmful microorganisms including E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, etc. This protects users from bacteria during everyday use of the curtain, ensuring a healthier home environment for them. Furthermore, as a primary barrier between the home and the outside, the curtain uses high-density fabrics to significantly enhance its light-blocking and noise-reducing capabilities. Its combination with the physical light-blocking design free of harmful coatings enables users to enjoy deep sleep without the worry of potential health risks.

TABLE KT11 – DESIGN BY CHRISTIAN KROEPFL
Client: palatti

Booth Design by Ho bausova - Graphics by Uchytil
“Modern aesthetics combined with functionality for everyday life” would be a way to describe this table with a few words.

Launched in 2014 the KT11 design presents a delicate steel tube construction that is carefully hand crafted from high grade stainless steel or (painted in different colours) of crude steel. This support structure allows maximum leg room for chair seating as well as corner bench arrangements. The table tops are available in various sizes with various edges and different types of wood (oak, walnut and ash). The simple idea of a truss, and its expression through elegant design is the distinguishing feature of this jewel for your home or office. Floating on top of a reduced and delicate steel truss is an elegant, but simple, wood slab - reminiscent of an acacia tree canopy found in the African Serengeti; Art and nature, in harmony

Designer: Christian Kroepfl

Born in Western Austria I currently practice as an Architect and Designer in Vienna and Lustenau, where I develop and design high-quality design furniture.
In my design work the questions about functionality and quality as well as the use of natural and sustainable materials are in the centre of the development process. It’s all about the clarity of design and the deliberate restraint to the essential which averts superficial attention: modest, sophisticated and sometimes calm in nature, these pieces of furniture make a point that great design does not tolerate hierarchies or compromise in the interaction of form and function. Sometimes just the simple idea of a truss, and its expression through elegant design is the distinguishing feature of one of these jewels for your home or office.
Modern design, in particular combinations of steel and solid wood, resolves into timeless and aesthetic furniture that beautifies our everyday life.

DESCRIPTION


The basic task was to develop a sustainable, metal-free, mass-produced and modularly expandable desk that could complement the existing bed KIDD of GUUT GmbH. On the one hand, the desk had to meet the requirements of GUUT GmbH in terms of a CO2-neutral product, thus consists entirely of components developed and produced locally in a sustainable manner and, on the other hand, it had to be easy to pack. The most difficult task was to establish reasonable production costs. Together with the bed, the desk NIVOO now forms the basis for a children's sustainable furniture series that is currently under development with the aim of becoming CO2-negative.
Dimensions (LxWxH):
in cm: 130x60x72,5 H = 125 cm with canopy
PLAY ON 3 -7 years old: NIVOO has a table height of 52 cm and serves as a stage, a playground in your own empire. The (heaven) tent offers light and space for the imagination of the kiddos. If the light band fed with solar cells is threaded into the back of the tent, you get a spectacularly illuminated stage. If, on the other hand, the light band is threaded at the front of the tent, the tent room is perfectly illuminated for work.

GROW ON 8 -15 years old: With a table height of 62 cm, NIVOO becomes an inspiring and faithful companion for adolescents. From capturing creative ideas, satisfying the thirst for knowledge to the first love letter - NIVOO is always at your side. The practical optional shelves elegantly complete the workplace.
WORK ON 16 -99 years old: With a working height of 72 cm, NIVOO becomes an aesthetic and stable workplace and a creative retreat for all, fitting into any living space as a decorative piece.
The basic structure consists of 4 wooden legs which are guided through a body with drawers. The lower plate of the body has a notch next to each leg’s opening. In the notches are housed the supports of wooden dowels guided through the legs to prevent them from slipping. At the upper end, the table legs have an elliptical cross-section so that they do not twist, at the lower end the section is circular to achieve the most elegant effect.

A rope construction is used to stiffen the system. Under the table, there is a deflection for 2 ropes, which are fixed with a wooden thread and which are guided laterally to the left and right. One end of each rope is threaded through a hole in a table leg or can be fixed there for reinforcement by means of an eight-sling. Each end is then threaded through two holes in the lower table top and braced there. On each side of the table there are two wooden screws, which clamp the rope ends and serve as child protection. The tent poles as well as the dowels on the undersides of the shelves are inserted through the head ends of the legs and locked underneath the table top by tensioning the ropes.
