Flux is a system for temporary storage designed as scenography for the transformation of entering and leaving the home. It is created through an exploration of the dramaturgical and choreographic dimension of the entryway that inspires play, movement and whimsical open interactions with user as an actor on the border between the inside and outside.The word "foyer" has roots in the classical theater, as a room where actors rest before going on stage, or a theater vestibule before entering the "other world".
The items in the anteroom are costumes and props for entering the stage of the outside world – and the furniture is the scenography of the passage.The construction consists of the frame as a unique mobile of elements for hanging and storing objects that play with different material properties, openness, density, tactility, movement and sight, light and shadow — together or individually.
These are elastic nets and pocket, springs, movable hooks, perforated panels and rotating boxes and mirrors that reflect the nature of improvised interventions with the aim of intuitive use for temporary storage in a context that goes beyond the hallway.Valuing flexibility that is missing in the category of design for entryways — Flux is an easily disassembled and creatively adaptable multifunctional system that corresponds to different floor plans and spatial conditions with the potential of independent (re)configuration for a range of styles and scenarios of use.
Eva Rodinis (Zagreb, 2002) is currently finishing her undergraduate degree in industrial design at the School of Design at the Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb. In the first year (2020/2021), she won the School of Design Annual Award for the project Kava na kavi – a modular, playful interpretation of coffee-drinking rituals in collaboration with the client Barcaffè, which entered the finalists of the competition for the best modern džezva.In the second year, she won another School of Design Annual Award for Fabric of Memory – a system of objects that contemplate non-traditional storage and the ritual of archiving personal objects as a materialization of memory and identity. The same work received an honorable mention and was exhibited and published at the Exhibition of Croatian Design 21/22.During her studies, she was a student demonstrator in Drawing and actively participated in exhibition design projects in the School's Gallery and as part of Zagreb Design Week 2022. Her project Planum – a collection of functional textile products is among the finalists of the contest Izaberi balu, zarolaj ideju for the brand Štof by Prostoria and the Croatian Designers' Association.In the wider field of product design, she is particularly interested in objects, spaces and concepts that the poetics of words and creative experimentation through the process of design research, while evoking whimsical interactions and playfulness. In addition to design projects, she writes poetry.
