Private Budapest Design Walk
This tour with an Insight Cities urban historian helps you to explore the sophistication and creativity, and the diverse cultural influences that play thorough Budapest's cutting-edge design scene. We focus on the 5th district and vast warehouses such as Magma, a flagship for Hungarian design from jewelry to tableware. Nearby we visit the workshop of Je Suis Belle duo: Tibi and Dalma, fashion designers who graduated from Moma (the prestigious Budapest applied design school) and started their own brand. Closer to the Danube, we visit another great workshop: Tipton eyewear. Its founder started by making glasses frames out of his father's vinyl collection! Heading east, we walk the smaller streets of the 5th district to see several intimate boutiques, then move back to the boulevards to enter Paloma, a courtyard home to some 40 Hungarian designers of all kinds. Our last stop is a Tisza shoes shop. Tisza used to be the shoe brand that everyone wore during Hungary's communist decades.
