First year students of the BA metalworks course at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) exhibit their experimental paper jewellery designs alongside the latest cardboard furniture collection created by Terbe Design.
Held at the Ráday Picture House, the exhibition highlights the tactile nature of paper and cardboard as well as promoting the use of recyclable materials.
There were several MOME students whose work we really liked, but we were particularly drawn to Nóra Nagy’s dainty toe rings made simply by cutting and folding small pieces of paper into bird shapes and other motifs.
Nearby was Kinga Gergely’s giant collar which slots beneath the wearer’s arms to dramatically frame the head and shoulders and Kinga Horányi’s lovely, bright red piece which, when worn on the elbow, fans out to display the numerous layers of paper which hold it together.
On the opposite side of the gallery, Terbe Design presented their collection of furniture, lamps, vases and storage units created from laminated/corrugated cardboard and Kartonflex panels. The lightweight materials are highly durable and the designs are surprisingly sophisticated. We could imagine several of the pieces integrating nicely into our homes!
Cardboard Furniture, Paper Jewellery runs from 29th September – 20th October 2011 at the Ráday Picture House, 25 Ráday utca, 1092 Budapest.
