HUNGARIAN DESIGN AWARD 2017

Following a tradition, an award ceremony will be held also this year to present the best of last year in the Hungarian design scene. The grant that has represented the most prestigious recognition in the profession for almost 40 years, along with the annual award announced by the Minister of National Economy, primarily aims to call market actors’ attention to the competitive potential offered by the creative industry, and to present the outstanding achievements of national innovation to a broader audience. As the notion of design keeps changing and is gathers complexity, the event offers a comprehensive overview of the trends representing the present and projecting the future of the design scene. Similarly to the previous years, the panel awarded products that represent a high added design value, are innovative, competitive, and meet international expectations, in addition to becoming an indispensable part of our everyday environment.

 

DESIGN MANAGEMENT AWARD 2017

The strategic application of design today is proved to increase competitiveness and is regarded by market actors as a profitable investment. The Hungarian Design Council founded the Design Management Award as a means to recognise the organisations that set an example by using the inventory of design and design-minded thinking, which has become an integral part of their operations also at the level of decision-making processes. This recognition may motivate organisations and institutions by showcasing good practices, while offering an exciting glimpse into the secrets of corporate success to those interested. In addition to the four awarded companies, four other organisations that have received certificates of recognition are also presented at the exhibition.


Admission to the award ceremony: on presentation of an invitation.

The Birome / Biro, GO-PEN and UO pens’ technical and formal innovations were designed to make handwriting easier. The disappearance of handwriting in our world is an actual issue, this is what Erika Baglyas is focusing on in her drawings. Let’s think about it together – all you need is a pen, a piece of paper or a cute notebook.

Forrai’s world consists of so many angles. Fictitious and real spaces, novel locales, dreamlike and actual travel experiences intertwine in his works. From a bird’s eye view and a modern perspective, travel experiences address the relationship of man and the town. The tools: trains and rulers. Travelling from an eternal point A to and eternal point B: an abstract adventure of cognition.
