Balaton BEACH collection

Balaton STRAND kollekció

The latest Printa collection is made for summer and beach lovers, as the product range is full of pieces ideal for the beach. You can get to know the Balaton-inspired STRAND collection more closely through a short interview we conducted with the designer, Zita Majoros!


Where did your love for Lake Balaton start? 

Anyone who knows me knows that I was not born in Hungary, and while Budapest has always been an attractive and magical city for me, I grew up not knowing Lake Balaton. We spent our summers on the Adriatic, staying with various relatives or camping. I only knew Lake Balaton from fairy tales: 45 years ago, my parents spent their honeymoon in Siófok, where my mother drank alcohol and got drunk for the first time and also for the last time. :) 

Then we got a holiday home in Balaton and I kind of fell in love with it... Balaton is good as it is, it shouldn't and shouldn't be compared to the sea. The more time I spend here, the more I get to know it and travel around, the more it captivates me. 

Then you drew inspiration from them for the STRAND collection... 

Yes, that's how the inspiration for the now 3-year-old Balaton collection and the new STRAND collection came... I spent a lot of time, maybe too much, on the shores of Lake Balaton reading, playing cards, pedaling and playing ball with my children. 

The basis of the collection is the "Balaton" pattern, which consists of organic, almost abstract elements, but if you look deeper, you will recognize fish, water, sailboats and reeds. 

Please tell me a little about the pieces of the collection! 

The STRAND collection includes different products, but all of them come in handy at the beach, especially if the zero waste approach is not far from us and if we go to the beach with children. 

The straps of our maxi beach bag are suitable for storing wet blankets, and the carrying case can be attached to the inside of the bag or to the water bottle holder with a carabiner. 

The Furoshiki large cloth is suitable for packing snacks, just like our waxed cloths. With wooden tableware, you can avoid the use of beach plastic tableware, but metal straws can also be useful in this case. Water bottles can be filled on every beach, and our water bottle holder bag comes in handy. All wet beach toys and wet swimwear can be stored separately in the mesh bag without them getting wet. 

In addition to the classic card, we also really like the memory game, which is extremely simple, but a good game and perfect for the beach - I designed it with elements from Lake Balaton. There are a couple of very similar graphics directly in it, so that things are not so simple... :)
