We would like to invite you to the my way talks at the Design Academy Eindhoven Hub on the 13th of April in Milan.
We will start at 16.30 at Studio Zeta, Milan, and round up at 19.00 with drinks & bites, plus a private view.
We see new ways coming into being: designers searching for new roles in between disciplines, or working as a collective combining difference knowledge, qualities and perspectives. There is new purpose.
Showcasing selected recent graduates who represent the new role models for design. Meet the designer as storyteller > Bas Princen interviewed by Jurgen Bey, the designer as translator > Christien Meindertsma interviewed by Joost Grootens, the designer as innovator > Dries Verbruggen, Claire Warnier interviewed by Piet Hein Eek, and a new generation of social designers.
The talks will be moderated by Marcus Fairs (Dezeen architecture and design magazine). And to round up Paola Antonelli (curator Museum of Modern Art New York) will give a reflection.
Entitled This Way, this year Design Academy Eindhoven show will occupy a large space in Porta Romana filled with graduate work, and also large cafe hangout. There will be additional side programme of talks and debates throughout this week. We hope to meet you at MY WAY
