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 students triumphed at the Red Dot Design Awards, often referred to as the "Oscars of the design world" with revolutionary concepts including a hybrid tram, a modular pram, an innovative VR headset for home workouts, and a stretcher designed for rough terrains. These award-winning projects were developed under the new preparatory programme of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, whose success is demonstrated by five out of twelve submissions receiving accolades.

It is a long-standing tradition of our University to entrust designing the visual identity of the MOME Diploma, from graphic design to the portrait photography of BA and MA students, to students through a competition. The annually refreshed concept thus reflects the university community from within, creating an important snapshot of the times and a unique keepsake for each graduating year.

Ten teams have embarked on an exciting journey with mentors from MOME, with several projects focusing on space-based plant cultivation and creating new habitats as alternatives to a lost Earth. The 2024 edition of the “Jump into the Future!" competition for 7th to 10th graders revolves around the theme of space. The second round is already underway, and the expanded jury had a challenging task putting together a shortlist from 52 entries by highly committed students from across the country.
