Pallas University of Applied Sciences, Department of Leather Design, "WoW"
“A bag that doesn’t look like a bag” – this is the task our students get and it tells them to make a story with the help of a product where the form of the classic bag has vanished. Visitor of the exhibition can experience the so-called WOW effect looking at the works where something familiar is telling an unusual story, different from what to expect.
Greenhouse Tartu exhibits prototypes jointly created by the students of the departments of furniture and textile of Tartu Art College. The prototypes are inspired by experiments with material and form and by setting technical challenges. The exhibition is a cross-section of ideas presented throughout the years at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair; in collaboration with Estonian furniture manufacturers it has got the potential to reach wider use.

The partner from textile industry Urmas Mägi (Fein-Elast Estonia) is financing the development of the software.
Pallas University of Applied Sciences, “I live here”
City as an environment is the seedbed for ever-changing and developing culture. Creation springs up from the environment and also creates it. The work of Pallas students is the outcome of questions about the relationship between environment and creator, place and people. The authors are both giving and getting, using and creating, valuing the past and visualizing the future. The city is alive until creativity lives there. "I Live Here" is the first display of design of the Pallas University of Applied Sciences.
