Szén Molnár Tamás architect, interior designer
I have been designing since I was young; I have participated in several art projects, from painting unique crash helmets, through theatre visual design and animation to film shooting. I played the saxophone for years in Quimby, and other bands in Budapest; I contributed to more than 20 albums. Beside music I also designed and made unique furniture.
I studied architectural design at the University of West Hungary, specializing in interior design.
For 15 years I have been working on the fields of interior design. Since 2009 I have been using a common atelier with architect István Bényei.
“A house is much more than a mere shelter, it should lift us emotionally and spiritually.” John Saladino
As an interior designer I am interested in the human-centered questions of the built environment: What effects do spaces, lights, colors and objects have on us. What kind of interaction do we enter with them? How do they shape our living space and through this our quality of life?
In my childhood I paid attention to what made me feel good in a certain space. Later, I was preoccupied with the effect of the environment on social interactions. Why is it that in a certain restaurant we tend to sit around for hours over a beer, whereas another place makes us want to leave as soon as possible?
Beside sensitivity towards an environment and the people in it, the practical knowledge and experience I gained over the past years are also essential for me. All these together enable me to make my clients’ dreams reality – enriching them with intellectual value whilst not losing sight of professional and economical aspects either.
The design assignments are diverse and range from private jobs to business investments. Sometimes the language of marketing has to be translated into the language of architecture. For all these a designer has to be well-prepared on a wide variety of areas: apart from mapping correctly the clients’ needs it is essential to be aware of traditions and have knowledge in psychology, arts and crafts, elaborate technologies, architecture, acoustics, graphics, economics, logistics, marketing and branding. One has to be up-to-date in current design trends, new materials and related arts. Often the interior designer is assigned with the task of the project management as well.
In my opinion the interior designer fine-tunes the building and coordinates the work of other designers and artists as well as contractors. Designing is a series of decisions, a complex problem-solving process: making demands, function, aesthetics and the available budget restraints meet. Taking the right aspects into the consideration leads to good decisions
My experience in design and execution along with experience in areas outside interior design but closely related to the creative-approach allow me to participate through my work in creating and conserving unique but lasting values on a high level.
Designing flats, houses, offices, restaurants and stores, providing brand-communication architectural solutions and supervising the execution.
Designing furniture, stands, displays, lamps, toys and unique objects.
Making plans with cutting-edge 3D graphic techniques, as well as making tender, communication and marketing materials for presentations in still images or movies.
