couleur baloghbalazs-1

Does the design culture of different countries have unique characteristics? Can we define unequivocally typical national features in 2011, in an irrelievably globalising world? We have tried to answer these questions with the help of the design experts of some thirty countries by selecting from the works created in the past three years. The answers arrived in the form of three objects per country representing a wide range of local colours. Visitors of Design Week’s international opening exhibition can decide whether cultural and geographical background, history, couleur locale and traditions are sources of inspiration reflected in the work of contemporary designers in deed.
