MBQ Novelty

What to expect from MBQ at Romanian Design Week 2018!
We have new collections with new techniques, new materials and in collaboration with new designers.
Our focus collection is called MBQ Home Decor 18 – Contrasts of Materials, Contrasts of Crafts. The Contrasts of Life.
We challenged traditional craftsmen to work together with modern craftsmen and, through experimentation and design, create a new craft. One part is new and brings the efficiency of machines and technology while the other part is ancient and gives products their soul and uniqueness.
