TUBBIES: UMPRUM students at Brussels Design September

The Delegation of Prague to the EU has the pleasure to invite you to a new exhibition of selected students from UMPRUM’s Product Design Studio who will exhibit a collection of their work at 12th edition of Brussels Design September, the largest design festival in Belgium. The exhibition, entitled Tubbies, explores the use of bent tubes in interior design.

The Product Design Studio of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (UMPRUM) will mark its sixth appearance at the festival. Five UMPRUM’s students (Ludmila Esterková, Aleš Kachlík, Terezie Lexová, Tomáš Rachunek, Terézia Rapčanová) will present their individual designs for the collection to be exhibited in Brussels. Their work corresponds with the theme for this year’s festival – new design brand start-ups.

The collection for the Tubbies exhibition was created in collaboration with Tvarmetal during the summer semester of the 2016/2017 school year. Tvarmetal – a company that manufactures bent pipes for the automotive industry – partnered with the students in order to create a new subsidiary brand for the company that would move their production in a completely new direction. Studio director Michal Froněk explains the idea behind the project: “The assignment was to create a fundamental philosophy for a new brand which would focus on home furniture and accessories.”

The exhibition is organised with the support of Prague City Hall and Prague House in Brussels together with Tvarmetal.

The opening cocktail will take place on Thursday 7 September 2017 at 6.30 pm at the Prague House.

When: 7th – 30th September 2017
Where: Prague House, Avenue Palmerston 16, Brussels
