Dutch Design Week

From 11:00 am to 6:00 pm

Located at Microlab Hall, Strijp S

The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is presenting five promising up-and-coming designers at this year’s Dutch Design Week.

The exhibition GIVING WAY revolves around personal interpretations of the theme things that matter: inclusivity, slowing down, balance, and circularity. With their bright minds, the designers invite us to appreciate and interact with everyday objects in a more conscious way, through their functionality or metaphorical urgency.

Selected projects:

Vestige, Alix Arto

Print my sleep, Rafael Gil Cordeiro

Don’t steal our sunlight, Rafael Kouto

The Reagiro, Reto Togni

Diatomea, SALIENTI
