Unique Gifts for University Professors

The Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics have asked AB concrete design to design a unique gift for 90th birthday of two highly respected professors – Dr. Géza Tassi and Dr. Árpád Orosz.

Each unique order is a great opportunity to put ourselves into real design tasks, but this work – as both professors are experts of the reinforced concrete structures and have teached the topic at the university – was particularly close to us. We co-worked with Marianna Balázs designer: we designed together the re-bound copies of the textbooks edited by the celebrated professors.

On the cover of the leather-bound books, there are two finely-tuned, feather-thin sheets: one with the book’s editorial and title, and the other one with a typical illustration from the book.

Our customer invited us as designers for the celebration ceremony, where we had a chance to meet in person with the professors. This project was one of our favorite projects, thus we could get direct feedback from the recipient.
