We have absolutely no intention of either driving you into a frenzy or shoving the holiday spirit down your throat, but there’s less than a week left until Christmas Day. The long-awaited moment of gift-giving is right around the corner, which often tends to be a sizeable stress factor, and also a reason that forces you to roam around crowded malls in a last minute panic. Design Terminal’s Christmas fair, AT Xmas, is both a source of unique Hungarian design gifts and a peaceful island on the stormy seas of Budapest’s gift-gobbling craze. To make things easier on you, we’ve chosen the items dearest to our hearts, check them out!

designed this experimental, one-of-a-kind piece of storage furniture

diploma work . It was made with a

textile designer’s approach , which comes to life by combining a

soft fabric


wood , and which results in a product that differentiates itself from the

overworked schemes of furniture design .

old school backpacks of the 70s , and are guaranteedly long-lasting. The combination of good looks and great quality conjures a high price:
