SUPERMOTO was presented at the john von Neumann University

Date: 2022.10.03
Project participants included students and teachers from the Vehicle Design programme of the Design Institute of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, and from the Department of Innovative Vehicles and Materials of the GAMF Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science of the John von Neumann University.

The motorcycle, developed under the ProjectSupermoto concept, was designed for both the street and for the road.  

Unique in both technology and form, it was presented on 3 October 2022 at the campus of John von Neumann University. The ceremonial unveiling of the vehicle resulting from the collaborative engineering and product design work of the project participants took place accompanied by a performance of the Kecskemét City Ballet. 

The fully electric-powered motorbike represents the first, definitive milestone in the collaboration and professional relationship between MOME and the John von Neumann University. The key objective of the project was to coordinate the engineering and product design processes and to provide students with hands-on experience in close collaboration between the two fields. 

President of JVNU’s Foundation Norbert Csizmadia underlined the exemplary nature of the initiative in his speech delivered at the event. “It demonstrates that following the joint decision of the two universities and through their joint action and close collaboration, it was possible to create something truly groundbreaking in just a year.” He also highlighted sustainability, the underlying principle behind the motorbike’s development, pointing out how the project represented the first step in the creation of a shared education platform. 

In his speech, President of the Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy stressed the following: “Today and this moment is the very beginning of this journey. We have very intense weeks and months ahead of us to put this motorbike and our upcoming collaborative projects on the track to commercialisation.” 

At the conclusion of the event, the members of the engineering and design teams behind Supermoto were called to the stage to describe how they, together, were able to create a vehicle promoting green mobility and with the potential to go from concept to marketable product. 

The main sponsor of Project Supermoto is the Pallas Athene Domus Meriti Foundation.

How to make gastronomy truly sustainable? Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) and SALT Restaurant have reached a major milestone on the road to a circular culinary culture. Their collaborative research resulted in a new plate with zero environmental impact for the sustainable enjoyment of the best haute cuisine has to offer.

The works created by the latest generation of product design students of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME), presented at the S/ALON BUDAPEST home trend fair on 22 to 24 September at the Budapest Arena all share a focus on the passion for the traditions of handcrafting, sustainability, innovation, and emotional connection. Uniquely in Hungary, the fair showcases the latest home decor trends, furniture, lighting solutions, flooring and wall coverings, home textiles, and accessories in extraordinary interiors, and is centered around the relationship of design and nature.

Design Theory MA student Eszter Sára Szabó earned the grant with her exhibition concept developed for beyond galleries, while Art and Design Management MA student Natasa Tereh and Sebestyén Teodor Bárány received the accolade for an impressive showcase designed for the MOME Campus.
