Geppetto Design was established in1996, as the family enterprise of two brothers, Márton and Máté Elek. Initially they were providing their friends and relatives with furniture designed and manufactured solely by themselves. Their inventive ideas and creative solutions had a unique appeal in an environment dominated by prefabricated mass-products. After the first few years’ ever-growing demand for their services, they decided to concentrate on interior, object and furniture design, and the production was outsourced.

Geppetto Design’s trademark ambition has always been to maximize its co-operation with its clients, from the first sketches until the completion of the project, be it a single dining table or the entire interior of a new hotel. In the course of the years, Gepetto Design became one of Central Europe’s leading interior design centres, and one of the few alternative in Hungary to imported design furniture. Geppetto Design keeps track with the industry’s latest trends, and incorporates progressive Oriental and Western elements into the their style. Geppetto Design was the first Hungarian exhibitor both at the 100% Design 2003 in London, and at the Salone Satellite 2004 in Milan.

Beside providing individual solutions to its clientele, Geppetto Design has invented some landmark design objects. The first international success was the Boiled Egg Cup, which reflects the creativity and the aim for simplicity behind Geppetto’s design philosophy. The Boiled Egg Cup was placed first in the Hungarian Design Award contest in 2002. The B-MEK standing lamp got also awarded in 2004, and is going into serial production in 2006 by the Spanish lamp manufacturer Eva Luz.
