“When it rains, the flowers open. The lizard eats the bug, the lizard eats the bird. But they all die in the end. It dies and dries up. Generations die out, but the next one is already here. And so, it goes. There are countless different forms of life, countless different forms of death. Eventually, the difference will diminish.” Haruki Murakami

The differences disappear, the motifs and techniques are connected to the trends of the given ages in an eternal cycle. They affect each other and still retain their original quality. As they are reborn or even transform into each other. However, their unique ideas remain, which appear in the language of design with their unchanged laws.

Brigitta B. Horváth
She uses traditional silversmithing techniques to make her home furnishing items, in the creation of which an important aspect is the design approach. She works bravely with techniques that are hundreds of years old in an age where few people know or use these form-forming methods. She combines the ancient world of forms with a good sense of minimalist, clean forms, the communicative role of objects is important to him, which she realizes in her works not only with the interconnected narrative elements of the objects, but also with the communication between the viewer and the objects. Her unique copper lamps and home furnishings speak of her love of nature and fill modern homes with warmth and elegance in a kind of oriental zen atmosphere, which she also inspired during her university years in the Far East.

Corinna Nitschmann
In her creations, domestic wool, which would otherwise end up in the trash, is used as a valuable raw material in modern interiors, thus bringing back something from nature and thus prompting the viewer to reconnect with wool, which the visitor can feel. In this form, the 6000-year-old craft technique meets 21st century design interior design concepts.
Its meandering patterns are derived from traditional Turkmen patterns. In her basic idea, in her creations, the tufts of wool grow a little on these patterns, just as the grass covers the Roman mosaics left alone in open space.
