Sára Kele

She was born in Budapest, Hungary. She studied in Budapest and Rome, and graduated at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in 2009, with an MA in industrial design engineering. She studied - beyond her primary design studies - architecture, aesthetics and cultural anthropology. This wide range of studies and interests resulted in a complex approach in various fields of design.

Her work so far consists of a colousarful spectrum of furnitures, everyday objects, graphics and interior design projects. Since graduation she's been working as a freelance designer. She's worked in many different team and project structures, workshops, both locally and internationally - for example at the Hiroshi Tsunoda Design Studio in Barcelona; at Artwo Studio in Rome; or with Sausagefence Design Consultancy and Kitchen Budapest in Budapest. She is currently developing her own shoes brand.

Despite her young age, her work has been extensively recognised and awarded, both locally and internationally. Her thesis project 'BICO' - an urban bike sharing system - won the prestigious Graduation Prize of the Hungarian Chamber of Engineering, and won various awards with the Wally bedside table, including a spot in the Conran Shop's 'Must See Trail' at the 100% Design Show in London. Her objects have appeared in local and international exhibitions, such as the Lakástrend in Budapest, 100% Design and Tent London in the UK, and the Holon Design Museum in Israel.
