Nils Chudy,  Tim Enthoven; what do these Design Academy alumni have in common? They were all awarded for the René Smeets Awards. The award, that is celebrating its 25 years of existence, selects each year a promising designer who attains a high degree of professionalism both in the development of the design process and the end result of the graduation project. The student has worked together with manufacturers and the product is potentially feasible. The winner of the René Smeets Award receives a sum of € 2,000 (and eternal glory). In addition to the prize money, the winner receives support from Syntens to develop a business plan.

In collaboration with the Louis Kalff Institute, the jury members & winners of the René Smeets Awards we will discuss which designs comprise our history and future.

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.
