DialoguesSK – Minor and Major Themes in Slovak Design

Exhibition DialoguesSK – Minor and Major Themes in Slovak Design represents a glance at the Slovak design scene. The curators of the exhibition point out that design is able to convey messages – not only about the creators’ ideas, background and aims, but also about the wider context in which they are formed – about the environment, society and history of the country, because all these features penetrate into the deeper layers of the mind, they inspire and form. Design is a specific medium of the present day, which people understand and which is familiar to them.

The exhibition is conceived as a travelling one and its design is adapted to this concept – it consists of lightweight and easily foldable black tables with backlighting, that can be adapted to different premises. Backlighting illuminates the objects on the table and also the accompanying text – the designer’s comment on a given object. The solution also includes an interactivity feature: the backlighting reacts to the movement of passers-by.

The objects being exhibited have been created in the last few years, mostly by young designers, and have attracted attention both at home and abroad. Twenty-four designers present a wide range of products or objects which in their own way – sometimes strikingly, sometimes more modestly – capture the attention, tell stories, serve a useful purpose and give delight.

Rona glassworks with its remarkable history dating back to 1892 is nowadays the world's top-class manufacturer of drinking glasses designed by Patrik Illo. The design quality of products made by large companies is evident in Novesta shoes, game pieces for children made by the Tuli company or furniture made by the Brik company and the Czech company Ton, which employs a Slovak designer. However, there are also small independent brands associated with individual designers, such as the textile company Puojd and the studios Mejd, Allt and Monada Bag which have their own locally sourced lines.

The exhibition is organised by the Slovak Design Centre.
