Projects & Research

BlueSpot is a free communication system that connects nearly 50 geographical locations in Budapest into a network. In BlueSpot, users can send messages to localities instead of people. Messages get received by anyone nearby. Our aim is to involve local communities in the discussion.


ICDB (Integrated Customer DB)

The interaction redesign of the Hungarian Telecom’s CRM system used by its nearly 8.000 customer servcice employees and its millions of customers. During the project we have thoroughly analyzed the communication process between the company and its customers.


Emergent City Action Group

It was a one year long research programme and workshop series between 2006 and 2007. The Action Group was studying how urban life is organised, how urban space is used, and was searching for technological solutions that could make urban life and communication more vivid and exciting.


Heart of Budapest

Global Splits is able to reveal the surface of the loci, so that another country’s visual interface can flow and penetrate into the viewer‘s urban landscape.


Mobile expressions

Prototypes for expressive interfaces for public use of mobile phones. As these phones function as part of our personal expressions today, why not develop an interaction language which can be spectacular as well?


Molecula designer tool

The software used at Richter Co. ensures a 3-dimension work-environment for molecule designers. The purpose of our project was to design a User Interface for the software of the system.


NDA - Social search

The purpose of NDA (National Digital Repository) is to digitalize, organize and make Hungarian cultural contents, the contents of public and private collections available for the public.


Installation taxonomy

We defined the taxonomic space of the installations of the House of Future exhibitions based on network-visualization. The visualization defined stronger and weaker connections between the installations with the help of key-words attached to them by the designers.


Avenue of cars

Proposal to create a giant conveyor belt to replace the highly overloaded motorways alongside the Danube in Budapest. A traffic jam is a pseudo-social space, people are close to each other and are forced to spend time together.
