In line with this year’s slogan, the opening exhibition of Budapest Design Week is primarily intended to offer an opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises launched after the regime change to introduce themselves. The majority of the presented projects involve products already manufactured or easily suited for serial production with little further development; moreover, some exciting experimental concepts are also flashed to evoke thoughts in visitors.

The projects curated for the exhibition were inspired by the rich mineral resources, diverse flora, rivers and excellent mineral waters, as well as the mineral-rich soil that sustains industrial crop growth in the Carpathian Basin – this being the starting point (or the start line, if you like), which is available to anyone, and which is a unique and unmistakeable feature in Hungary. The exhibition presents artworks that, even if implicitly, direct attention to the values of natural resources, through their use of material and the symbolism of working it: putting sustainability into the focus, they wish to use the means of design to raise users’ awareness of the value of natural resources around us, as well as their own responsibility as designers and consumers in preserving and passing them on.

Expert: Andor Wesselényi-Garay
Curator: Hungarian Design Council / Budapest Design Week project team

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.
Organised by the Hungarian Design Award
