This summer KKD interior designer Winson took a trip to Csóromfölde near Vigántpetend in Hungary for Hello Wood’s 10th annual Summer School and festival.
Hello Wood aims to inspire and teach the new generation of architects and designers to think with their hands and learn through experience. Encouraging a more practical approach to design, it emphasises the importance of craft and design through making.
This year’s Summer School brought together over 150 creatives from over 20+ countries to design and construct a series of interactive structures.
There were 17 different workshop projects, and the brief to our team was to build a Party Temple. The ‘contemporary cult sanctuary’ concept we created was inspired by the shabono, a traditional communal dwelling of the Yanomami tribes who live in the Amazon rainforest on the border between Venezuela and Brazil.
Hello Wood's first ever shabono perfectly reflects the growth of the festival and its community, and made the ideal location to celebrate its 10th birthday!
