The collection Pass it on outlines an historical timeline of Slovakia through evocative objects, telling stories of both bygone and today’s outstanding personalities who contributed to changing their era.

Young designers, architects and jewelry makers pay tribute to outstanding characters of Slovakia. The objects represent achievements and tell life stories of pioneers from diverse fields ranging from art, architecture, politics, music and sports.

Organized by Flowers for Slovakia

Flowers for Slovakia project

Flowers for Slovakia is an extraordinary project for extraordinary talents. Unique exhibition collections developed within the frame of this platform are inspired by vernacular craft & traditions, and promote cultural heritage of Slovakia abroad through the language of contemporary design. Thanks to Flowers for Slovakia selected students of design (and related creative disciplines) are donated a chance to experience the professional environment.

To present Flowers to someone means to honor for something, to share beauty: the idea to tell the story of Slovak culture via the unconventional means of contemporary design, originates from project's authors – experienced designers Lars Kemper and Peter Olah. The name and the mission of the project, inspired by the act of giving, started as a pilot project in co-operation with the Institute of Design at the Faculty of Architecture in Bratislava.

The project's first glass design collection Handle with Care was developed in cooperation with world leading glass producer LASVIT and renown AJETO glassworks in 2011. Two years later, the platform established co-operation with high-end furniture producer Vitra, whose support had enabled creation of furniture and interior accessories collection Lost & Found by Vitra, which was launched in 2013.

Since the year 2009 the project has involved 45 young design students and we have so far produced 17 international exhibitions. The project has received three internationally recognized awards and several nominations. As an additional form of academic design studies, the project has received the auspices of the Faculty of Architecture of Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. It is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic and runs under the auspices of the President of the Slovak Republic Andrej Kiska.

At the occasion of the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the partner of project’s exhibition tour is the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic.
