This year’s sell-out 360 Design Budapest exhibition attracted some 3,500 visitors, the Hungarian Fashion and Design Agency (MDDÜ) said. The third iteration of the show featured more than 100 creations by 31 Hungarian designers and more than 10 regional creators from Oct. 3 to 9 in the Bálna cultural centre, the agency said in a press release. This year’s show put story-telling, education and digitalisation in the spotlight to illustrate with a “colourful and exciting selection” the diversity of the design industry, the statement quoted Anita Forintos-Szűcs, MDDÜ’s general deputy director, as saying. The exhibition featured a design history section, a digital section using LED projectors to show virtual designer furniture items, among others, and a section presenting industrial architecture and green surfaces in an innovative space. The event’s Facebook and Instagram sites have been visited by 300,000 users since the opening, MDDÜ said, adding that the roundtable discussions and presentations can be viewed at the agency’s YouTube and Spotify channel.
