Social label is presenting its ideas for an inclusive society

Designers of the Social label designcollection & community: Petra Janssen (Studio Boot) & Simone Kramer (C-mone)

The Social label network is growing. In collaboration with leading designers and workshops all across the Netherlands – from care organisations to businesses – we are creating a design collection that builds a sense of self-worth and opens new perspectives. We are a Dutch movement that is redesigning labour to create new opportunities for an inclusive world. Our social designlab, the Workwarehouse, is situated in ’s-Hertogenbosch.

Designers of our product labels:

Piet Hein Eek (HOUT) , Roderick Vos (VAAS), Marc Mulders (MASK), Dick van Hoff (VEEG), Haiko Meijer (Onix), Edwin Vollebergh/Studio Boot (KOM), Borre Akkersdijk/By Borre (SCHORT), Kiki van Eijk/Kiki world (LICHT), Edward van Vliet (WARM).

Another view on labour

Our book ‘Design Works’ is an open book on designing labour and offers an overview of all the insights gained from the debates, experiences and practices that form part of Social label. These are tackled from different perspectives and highlight a range of sheltered workshops and social businesses, exploring what design can do for society in terms of social inclusion with enjoyable work for all. From lessons learned in the process, to a manifesto for a new economy based on human values: Social label – socio economics celebrates the power of design and communication, and is a striking attempt to make a change in the Dutch system of labour, participation, and social return. Jonathan Holslag closes the open book with his afterword ‘Can beauty save Europe?’
