Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design

Social Design Hub

Developing and supporting practice based design research in order to seek opportunities for a more sustainable lifestyle and economy.
The Social Design HUB develops innovative, practice based design research. Its aim is to serve as a knowledge center and to support related activities around MOME. The HUB seeks solutions to decrease inequality and foster resilience for all.

FRUSKA, the first series of the interdisciplinary design training and product development workshop of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Innovation Center (MOME IC), co-organised with Láthatatlan Tanoda (Invisible Study Hall), has concluded successfully.

The goal of this project is to jointly develop a system of adaptable tools that contributes to and facilitates the development of the creative competence of children of the 300 most impoverished villages of Hungary.

Co-organised by the Social Design Hub of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Innovation Center (MOME IC) and the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta (HCSOM), the one-week summer university taught children from Zalakomár participating in the Jelenlét (‘Presence’) Program about the creative processes of furniture design, stop motion animation and media design.

Research Hubs

Interdisciplinary research group focusing on tangible technology, dynamic surfaces, biomaterials, electronic textiles and soft robotics. They develop prototypes, research fabrication methodologies and create new materials.

Data collection is a daily practice in the 21st century but the stories behind the data are rarely unveiled. Data storytelling helps with interactive tools and narrative methods to show patterns that can help us make decisions.

Utilizing traditional ecological knowledge, state of the art technologies, and human ingenuity and intuition, we explore ways in which industry could do more with less, and serve not only the economy, but also ecologies.

In the Interaction and Immersion Hub we are looking at the design gaps of the Metaverse-like environments and we strive to create such prototypes that can have beneficial effect our mental health and also our daily life.
