About the Lab

Our story started in 2012, when on the invitation of Gábor Kopek rector of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design at that time, Bálint Veres lecturer of the university with some design students in their final year of studies founded the Lab. In the first few years, the activities of the Lab were manifold. It organized academic lectures, book launches, presentations of design plans in the fields of design culture and design education, organized art and design exhibitions of MOME students, and initiated a project that focused on the interrelatedness of law enforcement and environmental planning.

Since 2014, the main profile of the Lab has been to effect, promote, initiate and teach design activities that enhance the social visibility, the self-determination and integration of those living with disability. As a research, design and educational platform, the Lab is a significant hub, a think tank of equal opportunities design in Hungary keeping continuous contact with the relevant social and rehabilitation institutions, educational institutions, advocacy organizations, partners in the creative industry and independent experts.
