The S/ALON BUDAPEST interior design exhibition was launched with the ambition of providing members of the Hungarian interior design scene with an appropriate platform. To further pursue this initative, this year we give an extraordinary opportunity to interior designers with the launch of a designers competition: winners will get the chance to realize their interior design concept with the help of exhibitors, brands and the organizers of the event.
The theme of the competition is maximalism - fully furnitured interiors and installation-like visual concepts will come to life at the exhibition in the spirit of the maximalist style. These compositions will amaze visitors with their spectacular, aesthetic scale, intense color choices, strong character and beautiful arrangements. Massive statement furniture are welcome in small interiors, as well as vintage or modern elements, diverse surfaces, materials and design solutions
