From 8 till 13th of April the Self Unself exhibition of Design Academy Eindhoven will be shown at The Salone del Mobile in Milan. Since its existence, in 1961, the Salone has been seen as a perfect promotional vehicle for Dutch Design.  Design Academy Eindhoven was one of the first educational institutes to exhibit at the Salone.

Why is it essential to go to Milan and which graduation projects should represent Design Academy Eindhoven?

We will discuss this with Thomas Widdershoven, Creative Director Design Academy Eindhoven, Jan Konings, Curator Self Unself exhibition, Inge Borsje (co curator Van Abbe Museum)

Design Debates

Eindhoven strives to be the Design Capital of Europe. These ambitions make sense, with a flourishing design network, impressive design and art galleries, a smart and creative region and of course the world famous Dutch Design Week.
A Design Capital needs a platform to discuss, feed the design climate, to cross boundaries with other disciplines and of course connect all players (and players-to-be) within the field. Therefore Eindhoven-based cultural and educational institutions Design Academy Eindhoven, MU, The New Institute, Capital D founded the Design Debates platform. The platform is supported by critical friends: Baltan Laboratories, Alice, Capital D. Every month Design Debates Eindhoven will host an afternoon debate at the Designhuis in Eindhoven.
