DRVO+AKUSTIKA | Belgrade Furniture Fair

WOOD+ACOUSTICS|TMD @ Belgrade Furniture Fair
/10-16th November 2014, Belgrade Fairgrounds, Hall 2, Level C/
Following acoustics product design workshop for students held this summer, aiming to design a bench which should, beside sculpturality, demonstrate, in the best way, the acoustical properties of wood, TMD department of University of Belgrade Faculty of Forestry presented two realized projects at Belgrade International Furniture Fair 2014: University awarded prototype of acoustical TERCA Table by student Uroš Janković, followed by the realized product from the workshop - acoustical bench WOOD+ACOUSTICS=? by group of authors./ Sledeći radionicu na temu oblikovanja proizvoda inspirisanih akustikom drveta, održane tokom letnjih meseci, a koja je imala za cilj projektovanje klupe koja će pored svoje skulpturalnosti na najbolji način predstaviti i akustična svojstva drveta, TMP odsek Šumarskog fakulteta Univerziteta u Beogradu predstavio je dva realizovana projekta na ovogodišnjem Beogradskom sajmu nameštaja: prototip akustičnog stola TERCA apsolventa Uroša Jankovića nagrađenog od Univerziteta u Beogradu, i proizvod koji je usledio kao rezultat radionice - akustičnu klupu DRVO+AKUSTIKA=? osmišljene od strane grupe studenata u radionici.

KSILOTEKA: ART & PROCESS

KSILOTEKA: THE ART & THE PROCESS 
/October 16th, 2014/ 
Communicating, equally through the form and the process, the Interactive wood ibrary KSILOTEKA, designed and built by students and mentors of University of Belgrade’s TMD department, in cooperation with Strajko Co, for their Faculty of Forestry in Belgrade, aimed to highlight new views on learning about wood, through direct and unique perception of its diversity, aesthetics and tactility. A year after the first exposure in Belgrade (2012 at the Mikser Festival, the Festival of Science, the DESIGN BLOCK at Belgrade International Furniture Fair), the project has been honored with the the prestigious 35th Belgrade Salon of Architecture Award (Experiment) and the Belgrade Chamber of Commerce Award (Design solution).

Komunicirajući, jednako kroz formu i proces, Interaktivna biblioteka drvnih vrsta na Šumarskom fakultetu u Beogradu, osmišljena i realizovana od strane studenata i mentora sa Odseka TMP Šumarskog fakulteta Univerziteta u Beogradu, u saradnji sa preduzećem Strajko Co, pruža novi pogled na učenje o ovom drvetu, kroz neposredni doživljaj njegove raznolikosti, estetike i dodira. Godinu dana nakon prvog predstavljanja, u Beogradu 2012. god (Mikser Festivala, Festival nauke, i u selekciji DESIGN BLOCK na Međunarodnom sajmu nameštaja u Beogradu) projekat je ovenčan prestižnom prestižnom Nagradom na 35. Salonu Arhitekture u Beogradu (kategorija Eksperiment), kao i Godišnjom nagradom Privredne komore Beograda (kategorija Dizajnerska rešenja) .
THE CONCEPT / IDEJA
Materialized in cooperation between the Faculty and the local industry, the concept breaks up with traditional frameworks of learning and passive forms of acceptance and transfer of information, highlights the ability to perceive wood (as the material of contemporary design practice) through one’s personal experience and perception. The primary function – to collect and update the variety of samples for the purpose of clarity in presentation of its biological, mechanical and physical properties is thus achieved and expanded. The project has been realized in cooperation with Strajko Co, the company with vast experience in a variety of wood species; thanks to its activities, the potential to gather a wide variety of species from all over the world, as well as the enthusiasm of young authors from the University, the effort emerged the Interactive wood library unique to the region.

Ideja Ksiloteke, koja je realizovana u saradnji fakulteta i industrije, zasniva se na razbijanju klasičnih okvira učenja i forme pasivnog prihvatanja i prenosa informacija i mogućnosti da se kroz iskustvo i ličnu percepciju formira stav o drvetu kao materijalu savremene prakse projektovanja i dizajna. Osnovna funkcija ksiloteke, prikupljanje i ažuriranje različitih drvnih vrsta u cilju preglednosti i prezentacije bioloških, mehaničkih i fizičkih svojstava drveta, je na taj način ostvarena i proširena. Ksiloteka je realizovana u saradnji kompanije Strajko, koja poseduje višegodišnje iskustvo u radu sa najrazličitijim drvnim vrstama, i fakulteta. Zahvaljujući aktivnostima kompanije, koja je godinama prikupljala uzorke iz celog sveta, i entuzijazmu mladih ljudi sa Šumarskog fakulteta, nastala je ova biblioteka drvnih vrsta, jedinstvena u regionu.
THE INSTALLATION / POSTAVKA
The structure of the interactive installation is a set of four L-shaped mobile panel elements whose advantage is in a number of combinations, which gives a flexible configuration that can form different types of scenery within the same space. The outer is a smooth, bright, monochrome surface made from Koto wood, while the inner structure hides 148 samples of different wood species, in the form of interactive perky structure with chaotic form shaped to respond to the behavior of person who passes through the installation, indicating one’s presence at the very moment. Thirteen wood species were used to create the vertical forest of sticks. They all have different color, texture, odor, sound, hardiness, elasticity and density.

Strukturu interaktivne instalacije čine 4 nezavisna pokretna pločasta elementa L oblika, čija prednost je u velikom broju kombinacija, čime se dobija fleksibilan sklop koji pruža različito formirane kamerne scenografije u okviru istog prostora. Spoljašnji, završni sloj instalacije je glatka, svetla, monohromna površina izrađena od vrste drveta Koto u čijoj potkonstrukciji su skriveni uzorci 148 različitih vrsta drveta. Unutrašnji sloj predstavlja interaktivnu bodljikavu površinu koja svojom haotičnom strukturom reaguje na ponašanje osobe koja prolazi kroz instalaciju i upućuje na njeno prisustvo. Za izradu vertikalne šume štapova na zidu korišćeno je trinaest vrsta drveta, različitih po boji, teksturi, mirisu, zvuku, tvrdoći, elastičnosti i gustini.

TMD DEPARTMENT / ODSEK TMP
Furniture and Interior Design branch of TMD Department (Technology, Management and Design of Furniture and Wood Products) works on creating graduates, with a strong technical foundation, to develop and create new concepts in furniture industry. Students successfully exhibit their prototypes on professional fairs at home and abroad, as well as on a variety of cultural events. Their efforts and work have been appreciated with numerous awards and recognitions over the years. Especially within the Master academic program `Modeling of Wood Products`, where multidisciplinary approach and interweaving of academic knowledge and personal experience in related professional fields is particularly highlighted, a number of enrolled students coming from various related academic backgrounds, with particular affection to wood and desire to expand knowledge in this field, are attracted to this module.

Usmerenje za projektovanje nameštaja i enterijera odseka TMP (Tehnologije, Menadžment i Projektovanje nameštaja i proizvoda od drveta) radi na stvaranju stručnjaka koji sa jakom tehničkom podlogom razvijaju i stvaraju nove koncepte u industriji nameštaja. Studenti uspešno predstavljaju svoje prototipove na sajmovima u zemlji i inostranstvu, kao i na različitim kulturnim dešavanjima, a njihov trud i rad nagrađivani su brojnim nagradama i priznanjima. Posebno u okviru master modula Oblikovanje proizvoda od drveta neguju se multidisciplinarnost i preplitanje znanja i iskustava iz međusobno bliskih oblasti, pa tako veliki broj upisanih studenata, koji imaju naklonost prema drvetu i želju da prodube znanje iz ove oblasti, potiče sa srodnih fakulteta. 

THE TEAM / TIM
The project has been carried out within the workshop in which students, in collaboration with their mentors, actively participated in the process of the design and realization

Projekat je realizovan u okviru radionice u kojoj su studenti, u saradnji sa mentorima, imali priliku da aktivno učestvuju u procesu projektovanja i realizacije
