Faculty of Design has participated at the Salone del Mobile fair, which is taking place in Milan, from 4th to 9th April. This year we are especially proud of the eight students of 2nd year of Interior Design course, who managed to qualify for the exhibition of young talents – students, Salone Satellite.
To be selected among individuals and student groups from various design faculties from all around the world, is an enormous success, for the students themselves and of course for the Faculty of design.
More information about the exhibition Salone Satellite HERE.
Salone Satellite as a part of the Salone del Mobile is a good opportunity to present creative and innovative ideas developed by young designers. Together with the experts from company Simetrija and other companies, and professional and educational mentors from FD, the student group DISET (Metka Pirnat, Eva Sešek, Zala Marinčič, Teja Samsa, Tanja Barkidjija, Tjaša Skubic, Pina Marija Rotar and Blažka Bezovšek), developed the panel light wall and named it Hexalum. In an effort to combine a technologically superior product with a rich cultural heritage of Slovenia, the surface of each lighting equipment inside the wall, was designed with lace by the 50 lace makers from Idrija Lace School.
The product impressed the professional and general public.
Students have also designed the exhibition space, which literally radiated the beauty of the product.
In a whish to make the effort well worthwhile to students, the whole team of FD joins the congratulations!
