František Burian´s Studio

Prof. František Burian has been devoted to the education of designers for over three decades.

He tries to assign tasks that would provoke students into a broader understanding and other than purely material and utilitarian thinking. The result includes illusions questioning conventional perception of reality, substitutions of material and technology, or various “stories” and pop-cultural phenomena. They bring provocations, surprises, humour and irony but particularly creativity. They bring back to life handcraft techniques and evaluate the possibilities of digital technologies. They document both the playfulness and the engagement of design in cultural, social and environmental areas. In this aspect, design is seen as a tool presenting artist´s individual interpretation and reflecting broader societal and social topics. The emphasis is put on invention, creativity, experiment, and critical thinking.
