With my diploma project I designed a ceramic tableware collection for the Embassy of Hungary in The Hague, Netherlands. Gastronomy in diplomacy is characterised by fine dining trends, and in the level of service, materials, and ingredients.
In my diploma thesis my goal is to map and summarise the typical gastronomy, object culture, functionality, and other contemporary requirements of service in a diplomatic setting. The tableware concept also highlights Hungarian medicinal water culture. The shape of the ceramic pieces evokes different water surfaces and wave movements to refer to medicinal waters hidden in the ceramic glaze.

What does it take for a young designer to be successful? Whether for running their own graphic design or animation studio, founding their own fashion label or working as an employee, future designers need market and entrepreneurial skills to succeed and realise their goals. For this purpose, MOME teachers have developed a course that is unique in the Central Eastern European region, providing students with a business approach specifically reflecting the needs of the creative industries. The Business to Design (B2D) educational programme was created with involvement of prominent professionals and entrepreneurs in the field, MOME alumni, as well as invited international speakers. Its originality lies in it forming part of the curriculum and being a mandatory subject for all BA students.
