‘Another Composition’ Graduate Fashion Collection // Julia Seemann

6

An image, a collection – two-dimensional geometric elements, existing as a self-contained concrete composition and without referencing nature and visual reality, are incorporated in the formal language of clothing and designed to construct along the human body. Not only the reduced forms and cuts, but also the materiality inherently convey a sense of rawness and directness. In the interplay with the female body these qualities produce a unique modern aesthetic.

Continuum Lighting Installation // UVA

3

Taking a closer look into the sound and light waves traveling the world around us, Continuum was born out of studies into interference; interacting waves that are refracted by the environment and spaces we occupy. The piece is an attempt to merge the visible and invisible and to observe the complex fringes of order. With Continuum, UVA takes this idea of interfering fields, and tries to reapply it outside the confinements of physics.

In the perforated details which have become the basis of the brand identity, this time designer used vegetation themes.

This display provides a bold and unusual introduction to the store.

Forum Limbach – House on the House // Looping Architecture

16

Old farm houses tell stories, style and choice of material disclose what was erected when and for what purpose. In Limbach, a farmyard was expanded by an architecturally exciting chapter; the annex serves as a discussion forum and venue. On top sits the upper storey as “house on the house” with the principal’s private rooms. The new building, fitted into the historically grown farmyard structure, closes the rural square edifice and at the same time opens up the previously enclosed inner yard. This apparently contradictory double function is made possible by the building’s clever horizontal bisection.

‘Object 12-1′ Experimental Fashion Collection // Matija Čop

5

Object 12-1 is an end-product of university experiment in the multiplication of material which Matija Čop performed as a student of fashion design with the help of mentor Jasminka Končić. In the production of this piece of clothing, a contemporary material is used whose original qualities were preserved to the same degree to which the qualities of the stone used for the construction of the cathedral were preserved. The material feels like EVA or rock when you touch it, but its original look is completely changed.
