WHY

Flowers for Slovakia is an exceptional project for exceptional students.

Slovak design needs support and promotion. Since 2009, its authors – Lars Kemper and Peter Olah have been fulfilling their long-term vision of the practical training of young designers in collaboration with established manufacturers.

System “Tell a friend” can be likened to a donating of a precious asset that must be protected and nurtured. As an experienced master gives his apprentice’s own experience, as well as an established designer leads his younger colleagues to a better outcome.

Evidence of this are the so-far produced and presented exhibition projects Pass it on, Lost & Found by Vitra and Handle with care.

Each of the presented objects tells an authentic story – about the country, customs and people – about Slovakia. Through non-traditional media – contemporary design – we are able to find out a lot about our own origin, to understand our own value.
