Luster, ongoing project
The chandelier is a result of printing tests made with my desktop 3d printer. Flaws in prints that differentiate physical prints from their digital models become an advantage – emergent decorative elements of the lighting.
3d printed plastics, LEDs
The Level, ongoing project
A table is a functional object based on a flat surface, that is considered level until it is a subject of a measurement. In our case, the frame is installed at a particular spot and the slab is produced afterwards. This making process results in the perfect level / by trivjednom

1:1 Collection, 2013
To demonstrate the potential of the digital technologies, I collected miniatures from dolls' houses and using 3d scanner and cnc milling machines, I scaled the models up to a functional size in which the whimsicality of the misshapen mini-world is fully expressed.

Radical Infosystem, 2012
In order to make this radical info system, we spilled golden glitters in front of the every venue of Bratislava Design Week. The glitters were then spread around the city by rain, wind, shoes and vehicles and they created trails, all leading to the festival / by trivjednom
BaBear, 2010
The silicone bear is a souvenir from Bratislava that combines two typical objects from souvenir shops – a teddy-bear and an architectural miniature of the city. Bears are produced in various skin tones as they're dedicated to the tourists from around the world.

Donate Box, 2015
The interactive donation box was created for the Slovak National Gallery during a year of free admissions. The installation responds to the act of donating money – the one who contributes is floodlit and takes the centre stage.
