Christmas is around the corner so do not wait any longer, get all your presents at once from small-scale fashion and home décor items to unique handmade toys for your kids.
This time the biggest Hungarian design fair will also be found in the virtual space through the augmented reality application developed by ARcityBudapest which will give you more information on WAMP and the programs on the spot throughout the day.
For this special experience just download the free wikitudes application to your mobile, search for arcity and scan one of the flyers at the entry of the fair, and a whole new world will open up for you. With this application you can also join a game where you can win cool presents offered by WAMP designers.
On the 1st floor of the event hall you can take part at a great Christmas workshop presented by Schär gluten free manufacture, where you can learn to prepare the gluten-free version of your favourite Christmas pastries from one of the most renowned Hungarian chefs, József Bernáth.
As the festive season is coming closer it is worth investing in a few special pieces either for presents or for yourself. The gorgeous handbags and clutches of Alma Abonyi are characterised by innovative material use such as the combination of carbon and plastic or the use of genuine leather and fur.
Alma graduated at the faculty of sculptor at the University of Fine Arts, no wonder that her collections are just like real art pieces.
Bring some sunshine to those grey winter days with the boldly patterned colourful knitwear of ESZKA.
The brand of Kriszta Szakos is known for its vibrant colours and symbolic prints evoking the psychedelic trends of the 70s. Due to the everchanging patterns there are no identical pieces, if you find your favourite get that quickly, as you will not find it later on.
The playful ceramics and souvenirs of Éva Farkas-Pap’s brand Misija Design are not only cute, but they also carry an important social message. The tiny sculptors which are available in a wide range of colours and shapes are created by disabled workers of the Foundation for Equal Rights.
For those interested in the architecture of Budapest we recommend the book called Budapest100 Stories – Twenty-four out of Hundred in which you can learn the stories of 24 remarkable buildings in Budapest.
The book, which is edited and published by the civil group Budapest100, showcases buildings whose stories and the life of their inhabitants are interesting pieces of the city’s history.
The book is now available with 25% discount if you buy it together with the books @Fortepan Forgotten Budapest and The Budapest Woman.
Buy your presents from Hungarian designers this season! You not only make your loved-ones happy with this choice but you also support Hungarian design and local creative enterprises.
