HYPE | Weekly program guide

Luckily, quite eventful days await us again: we start the week with a conference, continue with an exhibition and a film club – then the selection of programs reaches its peak in the middle of the week with a showroom party, where we will celebrate slow fashion. We will close the week with an award ceremony and a Friday night exhibition, and will warm down the end of the week with a furniture-making workshop. Let’s see the details!

MOME plans to launch a new Costume and Set Design MA course, and they organized a lead-up conference for this occasion. They have invited the outstanding creators of the profession to talk about their own experiences and the current situation of costume design, and to provide first-hand information to those interested about the presence and future of the field. We recommend the event to those who already had a taste of this world and those only planning to do so, and also to those interested in the relationship between the world of theater and design.

E N I H O R N X Alma Vetlényi Showroom Party

A radical change of lifestyle is not the only way to do something for the protection of our planet, small steps also count: for example, if we support issues promoting environmental consciousness and responsible thinking about our future. A small step could be visiting the joint fashion show of the E N I H O R N andAlma Vetlényi brands on Tuesday afternoon. Both Hungarian brands represent sustainable solutions and slow fashion against fast fashion. They create durable pieces out of quality materials, with zero waste methods to avoid generating waste during manufacturing. At the joint showroom party, the two brands will present their 2020 spring/summer collections. In addition to supporting Hungarian design and slow fashion, you can also stand by a good cause: at the event, you can purchase the paper flowers decorating the wall of the E N I H O R N Showroom, and you can help the work of the 10 million Trees foundation with the amount generated this way. We will be there, for sure!

When: February 20, 2020, 16:00-21:00

2-day furniture workshop – Bench-making & upholstery | Bench making

Have you ever felt that you are more connected to your IKEA furniture you put together with your own hands than to the one without your hard labor? Us, too! This is why we decided to level up and try out at the workshop of Technika#1 what it is like not only to “lego” the pieces together, but to dive into the whole process and into the creation of a complex piece of complex furniture. At the two-day workshop, you can create an elegant bench that fits well into the hallway, living room or even the bedroom, and, on top of it all, owing to Manohuis, you can also get a taste of upholstery.

When: February 22-23, 2020, from 10:00
