House of Design is a platform for professional design. We stimulate the innovative strength of designers and presents this to SMEs, gouvernment and the public. Therefore we initiate and organise projects, national and international. We aim for sustainable and innovative solutions.
House of Design works with what we call the local value chain model. It is a model with which we develop local circular production chains. We link this to the effects on the environment and society. The values we want to influence include connection to the region, no waste, biodiversity, fewer CO2 emissions, pride, employment, related policies and new revenue models. It is important that the chains are within a radius of 100 kilometres, so that the impact directly relates to the region. read more
