The future of vehicle design is built in Budapest

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME), which is celebrated with a grand series of events. In the frame of the collaboration, MOME opens the Mobility Design Lab, a brand new vehicle design studio, where designers can learn the most cutting-edge technologies. 

MOME’s students and teachers have been actively involved in the design programmes of the car brand, with several first interning, and then working full-time in the design department of the company. The partnership has given outstanding specialists not only to Hungary but the whole world: students graduating from MOME went on to excel in the designer teams of major automobile manufacturers such as Audi, KIA, BMW and Volvo.

In celebration of the occasion the “Mobility Design Lab”, MOME’s newly developed vehicle design studio with state-of-the-art equipment, has been opened by the chief design officer of Mercedes-Benz Gorden Wagener and the Chairman of MOME Foundation.

In the next 20 years, MOME will be engaged in researching and shaping the future of broader mobility, by designing drones, ships, bikes and other means of transportation in addition to cars, as well as the related user experience. The goal is to train designers with a diverse mindset and skills in the latest technologies who can meet market needs and respond to changing social and environmental expectations.
