The biggest challenge today’s artists have to face is keeping pure thought awake, and liberating judgement-free emotions. In the age of technology and media, it is difficult to create a direct relationship between creator and receiver. Designvonal is an art studio, an unconventional experiment of a team of young Hungarian artists. When designing products, practicality is their main focus. If you have a kid, or you feel like one; if you are independent or you depend on fashion; if your life is complete with friends or you’d like to be different every day; if you feel safe when you are alone, or rather with your family being around – here you will find the most practical accessories for your daily life.

The new design centre of the Hungarian capital is located at Szabadság tér: instead of a traditional showroom, pointOne is a more complex place with different parts that are either strongly, or loosely connected to each other.

The idea was to combine the ordinary showroom experience with the great possibilities of a meeting point. PointOne offers a wide range of interior decor items, presenting such brands as Florim, Diesel Living, Cedit, Kaza Concrete, Milliken and many more.

Bags for men and women, dresses, shoes, accessories – even for dogs – can be found in the headquarters of contemporary fashion. The second best thing about wonderLAB? You can buy everything for a reasonable price, cheaper than you could in any other shop!
