The London Design Festival brought new inspiring discoveries, and I will definitely remember Hungarian studio A+Z Design as one of the most interesting this year. Creative, fresh thinking and fascination by the beauty of disappearing local traditions - these make the design duo from Budapest truly unique. Attila F. Kovacs and Zsuzsa Megyesi founded A+Z Design last year and Gipsy Furniture Collection was launched at The London Design Festival in september.
The collection is inspired by the folk culture of Hungary and Transylvania. A+Z Design revives traditional objects into contemporary context, but preserves their original identity. All the furniture pieces are made with use of traditional craft techniques such as enamel, embroidery or woodcarving, and I think this is the reason why we experience them in a very emotional way.
