Budapest Design Week, one of the most important events in the Hungarian design scene, kicks off on 7 October. MOME joins in with a number of exciting professional programs and international speakers. The university’s events will focus on the relationship between the future and design and will contribute to an increasingly intense dialogue on this topic.
After all, design plays a key role in our ability to build a friendly, liveable future and to find solutions. The exhibition Creating Futures Now! presents potential products of the future, objects, services, and concepts created at the intersection of speculative design and global challenges. As a highlight, trend researcher, designer, and co-founder of the School of Form and 360 design Zuzanna Skalska, member of the MOME International Advisory Board, will present a lecture on her new book Prototyping 2040.
