Each year the design changes the surface of objects and strives for its outstanding appearance, or, on the contrary, tends to simplify and tries to find the perfect form that is free of redundancy.
The purpose of the exposition is to demonstrate the ability of objects to transform space and consciousness. There are objects that have a transformation function. Exhibits may be for the specific domestic use or be just accessories that create and transform the atmosphere in which people not only exist and operate but "live" and feel all the colours of material and spiritual life.
