Lost & Found for Flowers for Slovakia

To tell the stories of Slovak heritage in the language of masses

Lost & Found is an original set of furniture and interior accessories. The basic creative process of the selected students this time was linking the traditional Slovak folk furniture types with unmistakable aesthetic of Vitra elements.

Benches, tables, storage cabinets, or even a cradle underwent a thorough renovation so that they could be not only be visually appealing, but above all functional. The perceptive observer will recognize, however, in non-traditional connections also working tools, originally designed for the processing of hemp and flax, winding of yarn, churning butter, kneading dough or butchering.

Poetics of Slovak folk art and craft is thus materialized in unique authorial “ready mades” carrying message of everyday object being used more than 100 years ago. Through a sensitive and intelligent intervention the selected new pieces acquired a new, current meaning and at the same time they did not stop telling a story. It is becoming more and more attractive even for a global-minded user who is hungry for added value in order to be able to establish a long term relationship with the given object and thus to establish the reason to retain him in his/her home as long as possible.
