Dutch Invertuals present
Mankind is reaching its outer limits of physical expansion. The world’s population is skyrocketing at a staggering pace, virtually every modern technology has been invented, and the consumption of non-essentials has become a part of our daily lives.
While it has always been in our human nature to strive for “more”, the design collective Dutch Invertuals offers experimental design concepts on shifting it to “less”, investigating what it means to “take away”.
Showing at Edhv studio close to the central station, Take Away marks Dutch Invertuals’ 10th appearance at Dutch Design Week, and once more brings together some of the most passionate, and vision driven fresh designers.
“After decades of abundance and growth, we must now rethink the essence of our true needs. Can we ultimately fade out the obsolete and return to it to the elements?” –Wendy Plomp, Dutch Invertuals
For “Take Away”, 10 Dutch Invertuals designers explore the complications caused by our contemporary lifestyle and each present their vision on viable futures. Works include new applications of production techniques, experiments that introduce new insights, and radical new ways of making and thinking.
