As a graduate from the Design Academy, Croatian born Ivana Borovnjak showed her work during the Dutch Design Week. A Dictionary of Cups is part of her project Logic of Language vs. World of Objects. In this thesis Ivana articulates a theory of how language as a communication system can affect designing process, and become a tool for generating new ideas. She tried to compare the World of Words with the World of Objects. Through a concise translation of philosophical texts into the language of cups and saucers and their relationships, a series of cups develops new insights. This project is not only very interesting but also visually very beautiful.
