These products are completely recycled objects made from the birch plywood of discarded furniture pieces and junkyard umakart. Umakart (artificial cardboard) is a retro material from the 1960s applied as a finishing touch to almost every home in socialist housing estates.
Studio Mejd was set up by two design graduates of the Academy of Fine Arts and design in Bratislava – Katarína Beličková (1984) and Štefan Nosko (1986). They were connected by a common interest in local traditions and craft techniques in design. This is also the major theme of Štefan’s PhD. They are also involved in the R.E.D research and exhibition project, Roots of European Design, exhibiting and designing and producing a small series of products with specific designs.
