World's best design graduates
At Antenna, the international design world gathers to see the top 20 selected graduates and talents present their work and ideas. The aim is to surprise, inspire and dazzle the audience of professionals and experts, at the same time challenging them to think further and be open to new insights. This first Antenna event on October 20th is the opportunity for design professionals, experts and innovative companies to get in touch with the top talents of the world. Antenna wants to build a worldwide network of antennae connecting the dots between talents on different continents, working across disciplines and with experts and professionals acting almost as a patron for these conversations, exchanges and possible collaborations.

About Antenna
was born through the need to analyse the ability of young designers and their talent when they observe, detect and translate ideas to change our world into action. Initiated by Dutch Design Week and Design Indaba it aims to help these talented young people to reach their next step. Supported by experts and professionals in the Antenna network, they will take part in an exciting programme, expanding their skills and networks, and opening up to a range of future opportunities. The name Antenna itself refers to sensory organs in the natural world. Sensing touch, temperature, air motion, vibration, sound, smell or taste their main power is to intuitively spot and interpret subtle signs.
