MOME’s Vehicle Design programme made its debut at the AMTS

Date: 2022.06.03
The Vehicle Design programme of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design made its debut with an intriguing presentation and spectacular physical and virtual models at the AMTS, one of Hungary’s top car event taking place between 27 and 29 May.

Over the past two decades of the collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and MOME, the programme has risen to the forefront globally. At the opening day of the AMTS (Automobile and Tuning Show) on 27 May, head of MOME Design Institute Péter Molnár described the details of the collaboration with the car brand as part of the exhibition Hungarians in the International Automotive Industry. 

MOME’s stall gave an insight to the daily life and behind-the-scenes secrets of the Vehicle Design programme, and offered the opportunity to view the most recent student designs virtually in the VR corner in addition to the physical models. 

The milestone anniversary of the collaboration with Mercedes-Benz will be celebrated by the university with a grand series of events, featuring chief design officer of the luxury brand Gorden Wagener, who will deliver a speech, as well as inaugurate the Mobility Design Lab, the university’s new, innovative designer workshop together with the President of MOME Foundation. In the next 20 years, MOME will be engaged in researching and shaping the future of broader mobility.

The University of the Future initiative is a key focus this year, aimed at MOME’s comprehensive revitalisation. Thanks to persistent efforts over recent months, working groups have developed a detailed implementation plan for the University of the Future programme, a.k.a. the “Three Schools model”, which was unanimously accepted in December 2023. The process has now reached a new milestone: on 18 July, the Senate has pledged its support for the plan, paving the way for continued collaborative work to implement the new structure by next winter and to transform MOME into one of Europe's leading design higher education institutions.

Our University has been invited to exhibit at one of the world's most prestigious digital art festivals, the Ars Electronica 2024. Each year, the Campus series of the long-standing festival presents an art university. This year's exhibition is organised in collaboration with the University of Linz, and will feature outstanding student diploma works from recent years in Linz's main square selected by curators Judit Eszter Kárpáti, Esteban de la Torre, and Ágoston Nagy.

A new symbol has been added to the range of memorabilia that members of the MOME community can receive as they reach various milestones in their university careers. This new emblem, which reinforces a sense of belonging, is a turned and machined bronze item with a polished surface based on the letter ‘O’ in MOME’s logo. Designed by MOME MA teacher Krisztián Ádám at the initiative of Rector József Fülöp, this symbol will be awarded to all graduates at all levels along with the diplomas starting in 2024.
