Unidentified T-Shirt Object (a.k.a. UTO) was invented in 2022 by designer Lala Tóth. Lala is about to receive her Master’s degree at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. She worked in the field of fashion (including the brands Nanushka and Constanca Entrudo) for more than 4 years. After the pandemic, she decided to live out her passion for textile art as being an independent artist. UTO is a project she always wanted to start, a business where the areas of fine art and fashion meet. In the works related to the UTO collections, Lala works together with Boldizsár Tóth graphic designer, and other Budapest-based creators and artists, thus making the process a complete artistic collaboration.
UTO a.k.a. Unidentified T-shirt Object is a collective name for the accessories made by Lala Tóth. She combines ancient ways of craftsmanship with advanced technology. The resulting statue-like objects, the UTOs convert ordinary T-shirts by using contemporary jewelry as a functional yet aesthetic tool of transformation.

Originated in Budapest UTOs were born with no intention to save the planet but to offer a sustainable alternative to everyday overconsumption. By implementing the regenerative design discipline, UTO introduces a new interpretation of the T-shirts you already own. Every piece of jewelry is made from plant-based resin and delivered in individually grown mycelium mushroom packaging with a booklet manual.

Created for independent human beings, UTO is here to help them to make a statement.
The debut collection of Unidentified T-Shirt Object is a group of “unknown artifacts”. At first glance, neither their function nor their method of production can be identified. As an observer, you can feel the mysterious tension which is similar to what paranormal phenomena evoke in humans.
