BUDAPEST DESIGN WEEK'S OPENING EXHIBITION: HOME SWEET HOME

Globalization, technological revolution, environmental issues, sharing economy – concepts that have shaped our mindset in recent years. But how does an abstract concept take form? How does the world leak into our homes, how does our micro-environment transform into a mirror of the society, and how are designers inspired by the big changes of history?

HOME SWEET HOME exhibition tries to answer these questions – mainly through items by Hungarian designers, in an inspiring way for both general public and professionals. Read More ›

MARTI GUIXÉ: EX-DESIGNER

Lecture at MOME

For designer / artist Marti Guixé design is a dialogue between user and function, form and content. Most of his projects are not complete without the interaction of the end user: we may add to his clock what eight o’clock represents for us, thus creating a personal object instead of a standardized one, we can combine the elements of the office furniture according to our needs, even our lampshade can be personalized by scratching it by a preferred pattern. All his creations are playful and food for thought at the same time, forcing us to leave our comfort zone and to question our relations with the world around us – abstract concepts in physical forms, simple and original solutions of problems we all know.
