KAZERNE LAB: Social pride


Joost van Bleiswijk will be trying to find out why people damage their own environment.

Kazerne Lab

Within Kazerne Lab, professional creatives work cross-over with other (economic) sectors to develop products, insights, and incentives for topical issues. With their fresh perspective and outlook, they provide current social, cultural and economic issues with inspiration, new perspectives, and answers. That may sound rather pompous, but it is, in fact, an extremely practical process.

The Lab is not a physical workplace but a project that is worked on within the heads and studios of the participating designers.

Social Design Lab

The social design Lab explores the open question of how designers can contribute to a more liveable world of tomorrow.

Inventory Lab

In the inventory Lab, designers work with regional manufacturing industries on creating innovative inventory for hospitality ends.


Brabant C, Cultuur Eindhoven, Stichting Doen, Driven by Design, Metropool Regio Eindhoven, VSB fonds.

Why is it, for example, that somebody takes great care of their own telephone but feels the need to vandalise the bus stop outside their house? Can a designer find a solution to this problem? Who or what is needed to solve it? Could it be a service, such as an awareness-raising project, or is prevention, such as the provision of a vandal-proof, anti-graffiti bus stop the answer?

Interested in participating?
Send your details to info@kazerne.com. We will contact you as soon as possible to explore the possibilities.


Kazerne Social Design Lab

Thanks to the support of the DOEN Foundation, artists, designers and other creatives will be working on crossover initiatives to discover new solutions for societal issues. Taking a fresh look from a different angle, they will approach current social, cultural and economic issues with the inspiration and new perspectives required to find innovative solutions. This may sound rather high-flown, but it is in fact an extremely practical process.
