The 360 Design Budapest series joined the Budapest Design Week events in October 2020. Over the past two years, the exhibition has received major national and international awards, including a Red Dot Award.
The aim of the exhibition is to raise the profile of Hungarian and regional designers, to promote sales, to encourage Hungarian design brands to enter the international market and to introduce new innovative and sustainable trends to those interested in design.
Art Market Budapest has been looking for the connection between fine art and design for many years,” said Attila Ledényi, Director of Art Market Budapest. As he said, with the 360 Design Budapest exhibition they can address the public interested in design, but the world of design also benefits from the fact that art collectors and collectors of fine art are also included in the discourse on design. This year, a complex program has been put together that will be internationally recognized, will have tourism potential and will also contribute to the country’s image.
The works on display at 360 Design Budapest are a strong representation of the pursuit of sustainable design. This year, the concept focuses on the interweaving and interconnection of past and future, digital and physical space.
