De beleving van het maken (dutch)

on 2017-05-10

De rol van het maken van dingen is spectaculair veranderd als gevolg van de opkomst van de computer. Vroeger werden producten ontwikkeld in de werkplaats en tegenwoordig hoofdzakelijk achter de computer. Is dit alleen maar een positieve ontwikkeling of is er ook iets verloren gegaan?
En, hoe kunnen we hetgeen dat verloren is, of dreigt verloren te gaan weer terugveroveren?
Deze vragen worden gesteld tijdens 'De beleving van het maken' op 17 mei @TU Delft. Meer info vind je op materialdesign.nl

Circulair stage for Welcome to the Village

on 2016-07-12

In DORP bij Welcome to the Village bouwen we deze week met Onix architecten en vrijwiiligers aan een ontwerp voor een circulair podium. Hiervoor gebruiken we spijkerbroeken. Je kunt in DORP je versleten spijkerbroek achterlaten zodat het een tweede leven krijgt.

Dit project is in samenwerking met het Nederlandse recycle platform Blue LOOP Originals. Blue LOOP Originals is de drijvende kracht achter diverse ambitieuze circulaire initiatieven. Zo lanceerden ze dit jaar samen met De Waddenvereniging de eerste tent ter wereld gemaakt van recycled denim. Een prachtige innovatie omgedoopt tot BlueCAMP waarvan het prototype te zien is op de camping.

Innovation with textile

on 2016-02-11

On February 5th, House of Design collaborated for the second time with the Frisian Design Factory in organizing a Design Pressure Cooker at the Blokhuispoort in Leeuwarden. This time their client was Omrin, a waste management company that is active in the north of The Netherlands. Main issues for Omrin: how can we recycle as much textile as possible, and how can we try to make more people find their way to Estafette (a chain of resale shops owned by Omrin).

Sustainable innovation with textiles

on 2016-02-02

How can we stimulate people to better seperate textile ? How can we make new fibers from old fibers? Can we improve the recycle shops of Estafette? This are a few of the questions that will be researched at the design pressure cooker (DPC) about textile.

The Frisian waste company Omrin wants to stimulate the seperation of textiles. If they can seperate it better, the can give it a second or third life. 

We are organizing the DPC together with the Frisian Design Factory on February the 5th in the Blokhuispoort in Leeuwarden.

Establishing sustainability and durability requires producers to make substantial investments, both in time and money, and is based on an innovative and flexible relationship with the user. In times of crisis, however, producers often simply cannot afford to take risks.

Introduction to the Design + Culture – A Return to Fundamentalism? trend report.

Design has become the embodiment of a larger process of creative ‘culture-mongering’ that has become a means to capture ideation, innovation and enterprise and made to stand for cultural identity. Whilst the application of design is multiplying exponentially, it is loosing its vailidity as a cultural icon. We need to reclaim a more long lasting cultural integrity and return to a type of cultural fundamentalism.
