Budafoki út may not have the hip cachet of parallel boulevard Bartók Béla út, with its cafés and exhibitions, but this is where a multifunctional space, co-working office, pop-up shop and gallery, has just been set up. Open until Christmas Eve, Dinghi is lined with retro treasure, giving it the vintage feel of a grandmother’s living room. Behind the project are the people who run Filip, the sought-after spot for unique antique pieces, essential to the underground scene around Népsziget.

Furniture, ceramics and tapestries from the 1970s to the 1990s fill the 70 square metres of Dinghi, a secondhand shop and exhibition space with a shelf life until 24 December. The adjoining co-working office will remain in place after the new year.

During this short time, you can browse for home décor and furnishings, while taking in one of the regular exhibitions at the same time. There may even be a bag-making workshop or flower arranging going on – but essentially, this is a Buda showcase for Panni Bodonyi and Tamás Budha, the team behind Filip on Népsziget.

How Will We Live Together?

Inspired by the motto of this year’s Venice Architectural Biennale, How Will We Live Together?, we put great thought into the development of the concept of Dinghi. How can we make the best use of this 70 square metres of space? With an exhibition area by the co-working office and the shop, the whole thing has become a great conceptual work of art, but in the same way we can discover what moves people,” explains Tamás.

The exhibitions are not limited to the interior: there is also an outdoor showcase with different works of art every day, making Budafoki út worth a detour. Looking to the future, once this hectic pre-Christmas period is over, next year a book is being planned, a memento of how events unfolded on Budafoki út.
