House of Design wants to stimulate the creativity and innovative power of designers. We operate from the conviction that professional designers have the tools to make a futureproof world. Through their ingenuity, they form the foundation of a sustainable society.
Nature is a source of inspriation for designer and innovators. Well known examples are valcro and the work of the Wright brothers (aircrafts).
House of Design shows the strength of biomimicry - nature inspired design - with short presentations and workshops from designers Ingrid de Pauw (IDEAL&CO) and Mickey Schepers (TU Delft).
During the first workshop volunteers, designers and artists worked on souvenirs for Leeuwarden 2018. Several techniques were used; drawing, knitting, braiding willow, 3D drawing and 3D printing.
The workshop was in the Oosterstraat in Leeuwarden.
House of Design is artistic coordinator, develops workshops and involves designers for the project Souvenirs.
