Presentations of designers and companies
Lajt Chair, design: Janez Suhadolc, 1991The chairs designed by architect, designer and craftsman Janez Suhadolc have adecided common denominator: they are made of wood, are handmade, and areboth unique and perfect in their imperfection. The designer got the idea for a chair“that can be held at the point of a outstretched finger and that carries the weight ofboth an adult person and a child at the same time”, in response to criticisms that hischairs were massive and heavy. The result is an ultra light, minimalist chair of basicdesign that developed into an entire Lajt series and represents Suhadolc's mostwidely produced design.Flow water set, design: Tanja Pak for Glesia, 2008Designer Tanja Pak drew inspiration for the Flow series of glass items form theelementary movement of water, its waves, transparency and ethereal properties thatshe worked to capture in the solid form of glass. The desire to encourage people toconsume water in a healthy way without redundant plastic packaging resulted in thefine, thinly undulated crystal glass made by the best master glass blowers atSteklarna Rogaška. Tanja Pak personifies the fragile connection between thedemanding glass-making tradition and new creative technologies. Since 2005 she has run the GlesiaGallery, which specialises in glass items.Squareplay play space, design: Oloop, 2007Oloop is both a brand and a collective with a loosely permanent membership ofthree textile designers: Tjaša Bavcon, Katja Burger and Jasmina Fer
ek. They joined forces over the course of creative exploration of objects and spaces that canbe worn like a second skin or used to move in space. The large (140 x 140 cm)multi-layered surface made of breathing cotton jersey fabric, polyester andpolyurethane foam can be folded, turned up, twisted and arranged into variousspatial nests. The square shape of the product is conceived such that the child creates his ownplayground.Efekt shovel, design: Rinz, Pavlinec & Pavlinec for Tehnos, 2008The multi-purpose ergonomic shovel is a tool suitable for various jobs on the farm, inthe garden or at home that require strength and efficiency. The inventive ergonomicshape of the shovel that weighs only 1.5 kg greatly reduces the need for bending andtransfers pressure from the back to the legs. The light aluminium bar is coated withthermal PVC, providing good grip and thermal insulation, whereas the blade with
systematically formed reinforcement allows a greater scoop and requires less force. As a result theshovel is rugged, light and highly stable, even when loaded.Siti armchair, design: Arne Vehovar for Zilio Aldo & C. Sas, 2004Since the mid 1990s, architect Arne Vehovar and his associates have helped shapeSlovene design significantly, particularly in the planning and design of furniture. TheSiti armchair with a solid beech frame and a back and seat in moulded beechplywood, is designed for easy storage and stacking, saving precious space ifnecessary. This is one of the few wooden armchairs that provides real comfort. Thefinishing varies, available as natural, coloured or lacquered.Wall Coatrack, design: Toni Kancilja, 1999The construction of this wall-mounted coat rack, consisting of a row of carrying andsupporting pegs, represents a well-conceived play of balance, functionality, andbeauty, with no extraneous elements. Its perfection lies in the exemplary conceptand simple form.Taurus Electro G2 glider, design: Ivo Boscarol and team for Pipistrel, 2008World-renowned Pipistrel is known for their high-end ultralight motorgliders. Just afew years ago the company launched a pioneering product called the TaurusElectro G2, the first electric two-seat aeroplane in the world. The aircraft iseconomical, quiet and emits no CO2. The engine and landing gear are completelyretractable, thereby reducing air resistance and fuel consumption. The parallel seating makes the seatsergonomic and comfortable and facilitates adjustment of the cockpit according to the size and shape ofthe pilot. Pipistrel has also developed the Solar Trailer for road transport purposes. In favourableconditions, its powerful solar panels can recharge the glider’s batteries in five hours.Slim lamp, design: Bevk Perovi
arhitekti for Vertigo Bird, 2008Vertigo Bird is a contemporary Slovenian lighting brand established in 2008. Sinceits launch the company has worked intensively with both Slovenian and foreigndesigners to build a diverse and compelling lighting collection. The idea for the Slimlamp designed by Bevk Perovi
architects combined a standard fluorescent tubeand a ballast module. The bottle-shaped casing of the ballast module is the extension of a laser-cutaluminium pipe that aims to achieve optimum light emission. The result is a lamp of monolithic shapewith an unusually slim body. It can be used as an office lamp, a free-standing lamp or a vertical-suspension wall lamp.Holey Roket stove, design: Rok Oblak, co-author: Larry Winiarski, 2009Designer Rok Oblak developed the Holey Roket vernacular stove in cooperationwith different centres producing biomass briquettes worldwide. The unusual L-shaped combustion chamber and the position of briquettes improve the air flow andallow higher burning temperatures for toxic gasses and other substances; at thesame time the shape enables simple adding of fuel during cooking. The open-source shape is simple toimitate and can be adjusted to existing stoves. In addition, existing pipes can also be used as a modelfor briquettes. The making of the Holey Roket is cost-free. Because organic waste is used, itencourages sustainability and contributes to a cleaner environment.Greenline 33 Hybrid Powerboat, design: Jernej and Japec Jakopin for SeawayGroup, 2009Seaway is the world’s leading boat development and engineering company. Inresponse to the global recession of 2008, the company began to develop a visionaligned along changing values in contemporary boating, resulting in the hybridGreenline 33. The primary feature of this special 10-metre craft is its hybrid power (electric or diesel)co-generated by roof-mounted solar panels, which recharge the batteries throughout the day. As aresult, the Greenline 33 sails without noise, smoke and unnecessary carbon dioxide emissions. Thespecial Superdisplacement™ shape of the hull combines a safe and comfortable voyage with littleresistance, which means a pleasurable time onboard and low fuel consumption.Gwig lamp, design: Asobi for Intra lighting, 2006Intra lighting is an international company based in Miren specialised in themanufacture of architectural lighting and lighting systems. The pendant Gwig lampis a result of cooperation between Intra lighting and Asobi Design Studio. The
