Design Academy Eindhoven: Our Way
Part of Dutch Design Week, Design Academy Eindhoven will present this year’s graduate show, entitled Our Way. The show will exhibit 173 projects from both bachelors and masters programmes, which have been divided into seven topical themes: Human, Nurture, Delight, Useful, Conscious, City and Nature.
The show, curated by British Designer Ilse Crawford, is intended to highlight the designers’ interest in and compassion for society. "We are practical intellectuals. Design can shape and make new realities that can affect us all,” says Crawford. “Design is at its best when it addresses real needs; hence this show deals with themes that are deliberately ordinary."
The exhibition runs at the Witte Dame building in Eindhoven from October 22-30 2011.
