Hide and Seek by Mária Pospíšilová


Dining table has always been a firm place in the interiors. Like the stew, this type of furniture played an important role in traditional Slovak rituality. An invitation to sit down at the table just distinguished guests and precious relatives received. At the end of the 19th century the type of simpler design with smooth plates with straight footstool and narrower undertable in which the socket was built-in began to expand in Slovakia.

Currently at these busy times in many households the classic dining table is missing, but on the contrary a desk is only rarely absent. People voluntarily waive their common meetings in favour of the individual, undisturbed activities.



Mária Pospíšilová was one of those who argued that “Things they teach us at school are not enough”. “Maryš” graduated in product design at the Technical University in Košice. Nowadays she is a PhD. student at FA STU in Bratislava, and main focus of her research is furniture design as a source of emotions and desire. And why she applied for Flowers? “By accepting challenges, I am trying my limits!”.
