HFDA Academy design DIALOG
The Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency (HFDA) organised the roundtable discussion “HFDA Academy design DIALOG” for the first time on Wednesday, 26th of June, 2019. At the event titled “Hungarian Design Oscar Winners”, internationally renowned designers talked about their award-winning products, the positive professional and economic impact of these awards and their personal design credentials.
The aim of the event was to showcase the outstanding nature of Hungarian designers' attitudes and their achievements, further to strengthen and raise awareness within domestic audiences of the worldwide successes of Hungarian creatives.
Moderator and design manager Éva Tornyánszki briefly described the characteristics of international awards (Red Dot Design Award, iF Design Award, A'Design Award), which was followed by short introductions from the invited designers: Richárd Márk Nagy (Co & Co Designcommunication), András Húnfalvi and Ferenc Laufer (Flying Objects Design Studio), and Péter Molnár (Maform).
After the discussion, participants were able to try out the objects of the prominent designers, including Frend, the foldable wheelbarrow (Flying Objects), the Dry Salt Inhaler (Co & Co Designcommunication), and the Paq Chair Bed (Maform).
The next HFDA Academy design DIALOG event is scheduled for October.
