Materials and products are developed in TXT. The notion of a ësemi-finished productí plays an important role, enabling us to mediate between all kinds of end uses: architecture, fashion, interior design and industry. The atmosphere in the department is one in which thinking and doing permanently influence each other. Within the applied framework of the department, there is the opportunity to develop more autonomously oriented work. The world of visual designers is no longer strictly divided between artists and designers. The confusion between these two positions is productive, and you will be challenged to use it.
