It’s been a week since Loli came to see us and I haven’t had the time yet to post about our visit to The Design Musem . It’s one of those places I’d like to come back to, actually, often – located in the heart of the city, appropriate in size for an afternoon visit, inspiring in so many ways and with a cosy café that looks out on a garden. I particularly enjoyed the Applied Arts and Design of the 20th Century section – you can’t help but feel elements of Danishness impermeating every article on the exhibit: functionality, creativity, simplicity, beauty. In some way classic, in other ways still innovative, the furniture and lamps, objects of household, ceramics, all transport you back in time and simultaneously show elements of futurism in a tasteful way. Organic forms and shapes, fluid design that still stands today – definitely a place to come back to!
Lolika has just arrived from Birmingham – I can’t remember having felt so relaxed and liberated and at home speaking the Hungarian I grew up with – and with a person that means so much to me. Life has just gotten more normal, more understandable and more complete. Funnily, Kincsem senses that in me and feels the same way, too. Perhaps because Loli just brings the best out of us.
