Silent Revolutions is a selection of contemporary Slovenian design, that highlights the first 20 years of design in Slovenia, as a young European country.
More than 25 carefully selected works by Slovenia’s most outstanding designers have been selected to show the drive and creativity behind the designers and high quality production and manufacturing standards from Slovenia.
Is it hoped that the exhibition will help to make Slovenia more widely recognised through its industrial design genius.
Franc Kuzma has been producing music technology for the domestic market for over 20 years. In the late 90s they developed the StabiS turntable, and then the StabiXL. These minimal turntables are governed by function. Weighing in at around 80kg (the platter weighs 24kg) no suspension is required – just a strong and stable base.
Seductive Black Cherry Lamps by Nika Zupanc, created for La Femme et la Maison, pay homage to the mysterious and simple shape of the black cherry. The lamps are formed from blown glass, and suspended from metal tubing.
Other products not to miss are the revolutionary WaveFlex snow skis by Slovenian manufacturer Elan and designed by Gigodesign Studio; Alpina’s Racing Elite ski-boots developed with the Jure Miklavc studio and Gorenje’s Simplicity Home Appliance range designed and developed by their in-house design team.
