Product Service System Design is an international program in which students work in multicultural, multi-disciplinary teams to create innovative solutions to challenges with a systems approach, combining product, service and communication design.
We used chemical etching. Each team member designed a map depending on their home / origins.

CUCI.MI is a retail experience where young fashionistas can buy simple clothing and sewing accessories and then customize anything using D.I.Y. equipment all under one roof.
CUCI.MI is a space where people can go to develop and customize their own style without the designer price.

Design for services applied to DIY leisure: our main task was to design solutions that can inspire and help the people of Milan to self-organize recreational activities in nature.
The project aims to be implemented by the Nutrire Milano (~Feeding Milan) program which is working to reconnect the city and the surrounding agricultural areas with effective and innovative solutions.
The Italian Job
our question was: "What if we could offer a unique and traditional Milanese experience to business travellers?"
Italian Job is a service that gives visibility and accessibility to traditional practices for people who come to Milan and are interested in making things in a classical way.
The Italian Job is a service providing unique leisure experiences for business travellers using the already existing crafts services of the city of Milan.

The New School for Design
The Cultivator Project aims to expose the potential of urban agriculture and the growing movement of local food production that has the power to substantially benefit our cities – and ourselves. The goal is to enable people to become an active participant in local food systems, with the purpose of producing goods within your own home for personal use and for small businesses that can potentially scale-up.
In order to facilitate this process, a toolkit and manual is being designed for helping people to build household aquaponic systems based on low-budget solutions so that everybody can use it.
I started to work on my thesis project in early February:
completing most of the research and concept framing part in Parsons, joining the Transdisciplinary Design program.
I was also collaborating with Chris Piuggi, who is graduating from the Design and Technlology program, working on the Hydron project: Networked Aquatic Ecosystems – DIY Networks.
I experienced the artistic way of architectural design.
besides the university’s mechanical projects I had personal initiatives to satisfy my creative needs
Industrial Design BSc
2005 - 2009
Budapest University of Technology and Economics
During my bachelor years I learnt:
which gave me a strong constructive basis and integrated my generative working methods
and work in teams
to solve complex problems
I had the opportunity to join a furniture atelier as a trainee
That encouraged me to go further
Going back to Budapest, I was searching for a place where I could integrate these newly acquired methods and knowledge with my engineering background
I was working with people who were passionate about creating experimental projects in cross-disciplinary surroundings with multinational teams.
The goal of my thesis was to design an eco-kitchen product and its surroundings. The design calls attention to eco-conscious ways of living and consuming and gives high priority to state of the art technical possibilities.
Plantus is an almost self-supporting system for growing plants, herbs and vegetables using nutrient solutions without soil, caters to fish (also consumable) and features a separated sprouting unit.
I profited from my time at KIBU in every way and understood that

I am ready to participate in something great,
that I can grow together with,
bringing back all the skills I gained along the journey.
