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.
The dates for 2016 are set! On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of Ocober you can see, feel, taste and try all kinds of design and lifestyle products in the centre of Groningen.

House of Design would like to work with students in the field of sustainable design and international collaboration, communication and finance.
