Owing to the high interest, the availability period of 360 Design Budapest online exhibition showcasing contemporary design objects has been prolonged. Besides taking a thrilling round tour in design, the audience may gain a more in-depth grasp of the concepts underlying the event and the designers’ ideas through an online tour of the exhibition.
For the first time this October, the Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency launched its 360 Design Budapest exhibition, which presented the incomparable world of design permeating our days. Unique pieces of furniture, lamps, ceramics, cotton fabrics with metal threads, and textile products awaited visitors, a part of which were inspired by the concept of sustainability, but serial production items of artistic finish also abounded. With its raw industrial walls, the building accommodating the exhibition accentuated the uniqueness of the objects even further. Division of the hall into various sections of space resulted in suitable representation of extraordinary perspectives and aspects, and the design objects verging on works of fine art and brightening our daily lives were granted special attention.
Those missing the event may view the great works of contemporary design over the Internet, given that 360-degree panorama and 3D images have been recorded of each object presented on the premises to make them available to the audience anywhere and at any time.
