MA Product Designer, Design Consultant
In 2006 Szilasi graduated summa cum laude from the Hungarian University of Art and Design.
His thesis project earned him the diploma prize by the Committee of Creative Artists, as well as a special recognition of the Design Council at the Hungarian Design Award.
An internship at Braun, Dieter Rams' former office and the collaboration with the Danish design studio Jacob Jensen - the most influential European design houses - further refined his already strict views.
In 2007 returned to finish his master degree in design management.
In the same year he received the Moholy-Nagy László design grant, a 3 year professional scholarship awarded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, the National Office of Research and Technology and the Hungarian Patent Office.
Ssilasi bases design on the belief that the only man-made language of form is geometry. Objects that don't mimic nature, that aren't attention grabbing or visually shocking, but are entirely adequate; searching for the most logical while eliminating the unnecessary - often redundant visual noise. Thinking everlasting instead of short-lived trends.
"Ssilasi has gone as far as the limits can be reached by design today in formal minimalism." Hungarian Architecture
Based in Budapest, apart from developments in self produced projects, Ssilasi is working independently in the broader fields of design as well as wildlife conservation, through the means of visual arts.
