THE CONCEPT / IDEJA

The concept of Ksiloteka is based on the idea of breaking the traditional frameworks of learning and passive forms of transferring information. It gives the observers an opportunity to form their opinion about the wood as a material of contemporary design practice through their own experience. This project achieves and at the same time broadens the main function of Ksiloteka, which is collecting various kinds of wood with the aim of presenting its biological, mechanical and physical properties. Ksiloteka was realized as collaboration between the company Strajko, which has long-lasting experience in working with the various tree species, and the faculty. This wood library, unique in our region, was created thanks to the activity of company Strajko, which has been, throughout the years, collecting wood samples from around the world, and enthusiasm of young people from the Faculty of Forestry.

Koncept Ksiloteke, koja je realizovana u saradnji kompanije i fakulteta, 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 aktivnosti kompanije Strajko, koja je godinama prikupljala uzorke iz celog sveta, i entuzijazmu mladih ljudi sa Šumarskog fakulteta, nastala je ova biblioteka drvnih vrsta, jedinstvena u našem regionu.

THE PROJECT / O PROJEKTU

The structure of the interactive installation consists of 4 L-shaped panel elements. The advantage of these divided elements lies in their ability to be combined in a great number of different ways, which makes a flexible configuration that enables us to form different types of scenery within the same space. The outer or final layer of the installation is a smooth, light, monochrome surface made from Koto wood, while the inner structure hides 148 samples of different tree species. The inner layer is an interactive barbed surface whose chaotic structure is designed to respond to the behavior of a man who passes through the installation and to indicate his presence at the very moment. Thirteen tree 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 panelna elementa L oblika. Prednost raščlanjenih elemenata 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 čoveka koji prolazi kroz instalaciju i upućuje na njegovo prisustvo. Za izradu vertikalne šume štapova na zidu korišćeno je trinaest vrsta drveta, različitih po boji, teksturi, mirisu, zvuku, tvrdoći, elastičnosti i gustini.

DEPARTMENT / USMERENJE

Furniture and Interior Design Orientation is dedicated to educating new experts with a strong technical background who will create develop new concepts in furniture industry. Our students have successfully exhibited their prototypes at trade fairs in the country and abroad, as well as at different cultural events. Their efforts and work have been rewarded with numerous awards and recognitions. Within the Master academic module `Modeling of Wood Products`, multidisciplinary approach, which implies interweaving of academic knowledge and personal experience of related professional fields , is particularly stressed. Therefore a large number of graduated students of other faculties, with fondness for wood and desire to expand their knowledge in this particular field, are attracted to this master module.

Usmerenje za projektovanje nameštaja i enterijera 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. U okviru master modula Oblikovanje proizvoda od drveta posebno se neguju 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.
