Ready for an adventure in Hungary? In this issue, we dive into Budapest’s design scene, taking in the city’s freshest interiors – like the Capsula store by Göske Project – and meeting its most promising young designers.

Then in Amsterdam, we tour the cream of the new crop of hotels, including Piero Lissoni’s latest minimalist masterpiece and the funkiest of fashion hotels: Hotel The Exchange. Finally, we catch up with Philippe Starck, the inimitable judge of the inaugural Frame Moooi Award. Take a look at the 10 finalists he chose anonymously, find out why he liked the designs and discover who he selected as the €25,000 prize winner.
