Accompanying the exhibition Licht und Form at the Hungarian Cultural Center in Stuttgart, a symposium will take place that, among other things, will deal with Hungarian modernist architecture. As part of this symposium, Dirk Allgaier will present the publication Stahlrohrrevolution! Kálmán Lengyel, Marcel Breuer, Anton Lorenz und das Neue Möbel.

As a prominent furniture designer and architect, he also founded his own furniture brand, Ka-Le-Möbel, worked as an interior designer in Paris, and constructed buildings in Berlin, Szeged, and Budapest.
