Challenges are welcome

Jakub Pollág and Václav Mlynář accept all forms of challenges and wish to expand their frontiers with new and interesting approaches. They are motivated by the urge to find a certain balance between commercial and non-commercial projects. 

The lucrative and luxurious project of the deForm studio

We introduce the “Factory” project, a diploma thesis at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague by V. Mlynář, which investigates the relationships between classical trades and new technologies such as 3D printing, CNC or laser milling. These devices have recently become much more accessible and popular. This change then brought a huge potential for creative professions, especially designers and artists who are hence becoming independent of other manufacturers or suppliers.

The “Factory” project introduces a production concept where the designer creates a tool (a small, factory one) and works on it, expands it on his/her own. It could be compared to small production lines which can create products from the beginning of the creative process until the final product. The combination of a “hand-made” approach with new technologies gives rise to a new modern craft. Prominent benefits include faster work and, most importantly, the fact that everything is done “on a single table”.

Koski: mixed reality is a construction block in the game

Koski is a luxurious board game which utilizes the digital world in a new and playful manner. It combines real wooden block and a virtual application which evokes digital interactive games. Using a tablet or smartphone, you can breathe life into structures made out of blocks. Once a player begins communicating with the collected blocks, the game starts estimating the hidden worlds, characters and stories behind them. Koski is a multi-generation gaming platform which introduces new and imaginative ideas. The game can be played in single-player and in multi-player.
