ALONG THE FIBRES – THE INTERFACE BETWEEN DESIGN AND CRAFTS

Doc. Ing. Tibor Uhrín ArtD.

Genre: exhibition
Duration: 8.8. – 30.9.2011

Works of Tibor Uhrín are characterized by imagination and simple shapes, sparingly and wittily usage of material. Author plays with the interface between craft and design, and the theme raises a question where does the craft ends and where the design begins? The overlap of both directions creates a tension between the position of an individual creator and the position of designer for mass production. In this sense, Uhrin´s production is experimental. The values of crafts and the features of design expressions compile into small products series, with which Tibor Uhrín won numerous awards.
