New Design by Old Friends at Dutch Design Week 2018
A big thank you! To all designers that have made Kazerne – Home of Design – possible since day one. We are currently still developing our new exhibition that will be on show from Saturday October 20th, and during Dutch Design Week 2018.
Within the theme ‘New Design by Old Friends’ we can already confirm the first participants that will be showing recent work:
Joost van Bleiswijk, Léa Mazy, Modular, Ontwerpduo & Cleary Led and Lucas&Lucas hacking Ikea. We are also very proud to host the Dutch premiere of the SOFTWEAR installation by Google and Lidewij Edelkoort, in close collaboration with Kiki van Eijk.
Home of Design
At the end of 2018 Kazerne unleashes its full potential as home of design. With the opening of the renovated Kazerne building the concept will be expanded with 1.000 m2 extra exhibition space, 8 hotel rooms, where you sleep in the midst of the design exhibition, two extra multifunctional spaces, a second fine-dining restaurant and a members club. A unique hospitality concept, made possible with the support of our growing community and many partners.
Celebrate the many meanings of design
Annemoon Geurts (Founder & Creative Director): “Ever since the first pop-up pilots of Eat Drink Design during Dutch Design Week many design talents and partners recognized the shared interest and added value of an inviting design hub. Without their wisdom, work or wealth Kazerne would still only be my dream. With this exhibition we want to say thank you to everyone who supported the concept in the past 11 years. Thanks to our partners everyone can experience the many meanings of design. And from the end of this year on, even 24/7. At the same time we celebrate the worldwide impact of design and connect this to our region.”
