The PopUpShow presents recent student works from Tomas Bata University in Zlín focusing on wood as a conceptual topic as well as a basic material. The presentation itself reflects the well-known phenomenon of PopUpCulture, forming a PopUpShow with PopUpDesign and PopCorn.
The PopUpShow Scene has been created by Michael Chomiszak who is studying Spatial Design. To evoke atmosphere of cinema he used the cinema composition – one part reminds the movie screen where most of products are placed, on the other are placed cinema seats for visitors who can sit and enjoy the PopUpShow. To emphasize the PopUpInspiration the products are flodded with PopCorn. Moreover, incoming visitors will get a cone of fresh PopCorn. Graphic design of the scene is a great work of two students Petr Belák and Veronika Holíková who created the whole visual identity of the exhibition including the title typography.
There are thirteen products all together and they focus on combination of wood with other materials. Students have grasped the chance to create products with no limits. Various products such as flowerpot, coffee tables, interior lights, coffin, jewellery or wooden radiator have been created.
As for materials students combined wood with concrete, resin, glass, porcelain. They used CNC milling and also charred surfaces of wood.
