WAMP Design Fair: Winter Season Sale @ Bálna Budapest, 9 February
On 9th February WAMP Design Fair will launch its 2020 season at Bálna Budapest, where this time designers will offer more discounts on their collections of the winter season. This will be your chance to get hold of the last items and your dream pieces on a favourable price.

Rozmaring Hungarian Design will take part for the first time at WAMP. The brand creates vivid and comfortable garments for younger generations inspired by Hungarian folk traditions and design.

Fashion designer Georgina Rengei graduated at Budapest Metropolitan University in 2018, her goal is to introduce Hungarian traditional values and culture to her own generation.

Her first collection that debuts at WAMP includes knitted pieces inspired by the Hungarian shepherd’s culture and wood cravings. The clothes are made in Hungary in small series with thorough and precise work with the use of strong and durable fabrics.

Dóra Merflesz the designer of Saku - az ökozacskó (eco-bag) creates zero-waste home items and packaging among others – bread and sandwich bags or organic cotton discs.

The brand offers great alternative to plastic bags and it helps to reduce plastic use in our daily life. These practical pieces are perfect gifts but it is also worth getting hold a few of them for yourself too, as they provide great solution for shopping and packaging.

Ágnes Cornides and Zsolt Simonyi are a married couple and founders of the brand Cornides that offers paper- and textile products made of durable organic and recycled materials.

Their philosophy is based on the devotion to simple natural life, the following of the cycles of seasons, respect of nature and the love of good-quality products. Their textiles are decorated with their own graphics created by handmade sieve techniques with the use of the nearly hundred-years old wooden tools inherited from the Cornides grandparents.

As a tradition by now in February WAMP will present the brand new student companies of Alternatív Közgazdasási Gimnázium (AKG) (Alternative Economic Secondary School).

During the one-year long school project the students found their companies and develop a product or a service through which they acquire the necessary entrepreneur skills in practice. This time you can also buy their products at WAMP.
 

The Designer of the Month in February is Tia Design

The thread jewellery of Adrienn Bozsik-Csengery indeed draw everyone’s attention. Her vividly coloured neckpieces and earrings are real statement pieces that turn the simplest outfit to something special. Her collections are defined by bold design, metallic sparkle, exciting shades and genuine femininity.

The fair will be held at the first storey of Bálna, entry is free of charge, and the location is dog friendly too, so even your favourite pet can accompany you.

Date and time:
Sunday, 9 February, 10 am – 6 pm
