Altogether, five students from the University’s Institute of Design have been awarded the Excellence Scholarship. The winning projects include works by designers and artists in the fields of design, ceramics, fashion and textiles. Like the Institute of Design itself, the applications are characterized by professional diversity and variety. Melinda Doktor, a first-year student of the Ceramic Design MA, has created a dessert bowl inspired by the classic delicacy, the konyakmeggy (cognac cherry bonbon). Melinda based the design on the ingredients, shape and texture of the iconic treat. In her concept for further development, she aims to create a new range of products, which would help integrate artisan glassware into everyday life by promoting it in restaurants and retail environments.
