Daily struggles with polluted air, rising temperatures and a lack of sufficient greenery mean that urban wildlife is becoming the last oasis in the urban dimension. The 11th edition of the Mood for wood workshop -Revival- in Cieszyn will focus on the wilderness of this border city. Workshop participants will design and make urban furniture to bridge the gap between the wild world of nature and urban culture. The projects created under the watchful eye of the tutors will accompany the natural monuments and surround the houses of plants and animals inhabiting Cieszyn’s green areas with care and protection, as well as serve recreation and environmental education. The furniture created as part of the workshop is to affect not only the body, but also the psyche of users tired of two years of the pandemic and overwhelmed with war news. They are to help users on both sides of the border to return to the longed-for balance of life.
During twelve days you’ll be focused on group design work, interesting lectures, sightseeing and many more attractions! Your task will be to design and produce wooden city furniture under the supervision of six international groups of tutors for specific urban related localization in Cieszyn.
Students of Architecture, Interior Design, Industrial Design and more from Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia.
