ONYX Műhely x MOME

Date: 2023.01.26
164 years of heritage - 9 designers - 9 traditional desserts - 9 contemporary concepts

The project is a collaboration between the MOME Object Design programme and ONYX Műhely. The goal of ONYX Műhely is to present a progressive Hungarian cuisine offering a fusion of art, science and gastronomy. Fostering talent is a key area of its operations, providing space to culinary, food science, and fine and applied arts projects by young talents.

The design course for ceramic design students of the MOME Object Design programme was led by Art Director of the ONYX Műhely’s Creative Community Angéla Góg DLA, and ceramist and MOME teacher Edit Kondor.

Assisted by the Műhely's creative pastry chef Zsuzsanna Borsos, students were tasked with designing dessert serving items for ONYX Műhely by exploring contemporary dessert culture and the related serving techniques and drawing on Gerbeaud's legacy. 

The resulting designs were on display for two days during the Budapest Design Week 2022. The students presented their designs themselves, and visitors were able to test them by sampling the desserts created by ONYX Műhely.

MOME has launched English language courses at different levels led by native teachers not just to improve the level of language skills in general but also to teach the vocabulary of the academic terminology, creative fields and the jobs trained at the university.

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.

Battling the effects of global crises that creep into our everyday lives, we may easily find ourselves on a rollercoaster between mounting panic and the impassiveness brought on by a sense of futility. In the face of steadily accumulating challenges, we are justified in wondering how to proceed.
