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.
Succesful start of the project 'We gaan het meemaken'. Interesting presentations and goed talks for a divers and engaged audience.
Together with De Marne we are organizing a meeting about the maker movement on Friday the 23th of September at the bussines park in Ulrum.
The council wants to realaunch the bussines park and made changes to the destination plan. This fall House of Design starts the project 'We gaan het meemaken'. The goal of this project is to set op a Makerspace where we work on sustainable production with local materials and digital fabrication.
In October of each year, Dutch Design Week (DDW) takes place in Eindhoven. The biggest design event in Northern Europe presents work and ideas of more than 2500 designers to more than 275,000 visitors from home and abroad. In more than hundred locations across the city, DDW organises and facilitates exhibitions, lectures, prize ceremonies, networking events, debates and festivities.
DDW is different from other design events, because it concentrates on the designs of the future. Although during the event every imaginable discipline and aspect of design is on offer, the emphasis is on experiment, innovation and cross-overs. Exceptional attention each year goes to work and development of young talent.
