House of Design is a platform for professional design. HoD stimulates the innovative strength of designers and presents this to SMEs, gouvernment and public. Therefor we initiate and organise projects, national and international. We aim for sustainable and innovative solutions.
House of Design works from the opinion that professional designers have the tools to make the world future proof. Because of their inventiveness they are the base of a sustainable community.
How can we replace the abestos rooftops on the old farmbuildings in Groningen using sustainable and local materials? And make it look good! To answer this question we organised a design pressure cooker with Libau, Province Groningen and Farming Foundation Groningen.
'It is about innovation, the connection, the cross over, it is about people.' What a nice comment from the jury about our project We gaan het meemaken. Last week the project was awarded the Sustainability Award, an initiative of the Province of Groningen.
The competion was strong. The jury selected 3 out of 23 projects inncluding Waste no waste, Bos en Hout and We gaan het meemaken. Eileen Blackmore: ‘We are very proud, because the project touches the hearts of farmers, fisherman, entrepeneurs and the youth.'
The statue was made by Kunsteboer.
