Four design diploma projects in the spirit of sustainability

Date: 2023.08.18
Sustainability plays an undeniably crucial role in design. That is why our Design Institute chose it as one of the four main themes of the 2023 diploma works, next to ‘Craft’, ‘Social’ and ‘Emotional’. The following four diploma works explored sustainable concepts in real-life situations.

BabKa ceramic stove

Martina Kovács, Ceramic Design MA, designed an alternative heating solution that answers the increased demand due to the energy crises and the need for environmentally conscious options: ‘BabKa” is an easy-to-assemble, cost-effective and eco-friendly ceramic stove.

Algae biofarm

Melinda Doktor, Ceramic Design MA, proposed ann concept for the future of food consumption. Her algae biofarm is a compact cultivation unit that covers the entire consumption cycle while also considering human scale, usage and ability to be integrated into urban environments.

MiConn

Dóra Sziláyi, Ceramic Design MA, focused on biodesign, explores cultivated materials: her diploma work titled “MiConn” combines textile industry waste with mycelium, detailing the new composite material’s production process and potential application.

I Circle Back to Myself

Valentin Szarvas, Fashion and Textile Design MA, designed a collection under the guidance of Dóra Tomcsányi that structures a wardrobe around material and cut, exploring the topics of circularity, circular systems and sustainability as a process.
