What a nice design pressure cooker session we had this week! It is great to see entrepreneurs and designers coming together to work out new ideas and solutions for Groningen Designs.

This year’s theme is hospitality. Many entrepreneurs prefer to shut their doors in winter and keep the heat inside. However, a closed door does not give out a hospitable message and means fewer visitors. The material with which the designers work is plastic, supplemented with other waste streams from the entrepreneurs.

Five couples will be working together on (fun) designs in the coming weeks, which will make the theme visible and tangible:
Sandra de Groot / Studio Chaos + Verroest
Aniek Kroes + Laif & Nuver
Carmelita Gonesh + Diezijner
Jordy Vijfschaft / Onix + Mary Jane Schoenenboetiek
Studio Veltrop + HK Living Brand Store

The results can be seen on Sunday, 3 November between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m.  in the centre of Groningen.
