Star Food Designer @ Budapest Design Week 2015
Organised between 25th September and 4th October, Budapest Design Week welcomes Spain as its Guest of Honour country. As part of the related programs, Marti Guixé, one of the world’s most acclaimed food designers, visits Budapest and gives a lecture at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, which is followed by a presentation and a reception in Mobili Mania. We can also see several of his objects in the Tapas – Spanish Design for Food exhibition open in the Museum of Applied Arts and has its finissage during Budapest Design Week.

Reception organised for the star designer guest: 1st October, Thursday, 7:00 pm in Mobili Mania; registration is obligatory:

The finissage of the Tapas – Spanish Design for Food exhibition: 3rd October, Saturday, 2:00-10:00 pm in the Museum of Applied Arts (1091 Budapest, Üllői avenue 33-37.), where it is open each day except Monday between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.

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.

Organised for the 12th time this year, Budapest Design Week takes place between 25th September and 4th October. The main sponsor and the patron of the festival is the Hungarian Intellectual Property Office, its leading professional partner is the Hungarian Design Council with Design Terminal as cooperating partner, and it is organised by HIPAVILON Hungarian Intellectual Property Agency.

In 2015 the program series motivating the entire Hungarian design profession and attracting the wide public focuses on the world of homes.

The central exhibition organised in the Museum of Applied Arts (Budapest) and satellite programs related to the HOME SWEET HOME slogan will aim at presenting how the social, cultural and technological developments of the past 10-20 years have affected our homes.

Home Sweet Home exhibition is open between 25th September and 15th November 2015 in the Museum of Applied Arts (1091 Budapest, Üllői av. 33-37.), open each day (except Monday) from 10:00 am till 6:00 pm.
