Visitors can see the work of more than 70 furniture, textile, glass, and jewelry designers from 14 countries, all of whom investigate the interaction between regions, genres, subjects, and sectors. The series is organized by Unikát Összművészeti Stúdió and is one of Hungary’s most important art and design exhibitions. Tours guided by the founding curatorial team, Szilvia Szigeti and Tamás Radnóti, take place daily between 5pm and 7pm.
