ABN AMRO Hotspots

ABN AMRO offers young designers a platform to present themselves to a larger audience.

All week at Philitelaan | Strijp-S

ABN AMRO is an entrepreneurial bank with a social impact. The bank focuses on the future and encourages new talents and sees opportunities in cooperation and innovation. With their drive and problem-solving skills, young designers contribute to the innovations that our rapidly changing world needs.

ABN AMRO is an entrepreneurial bank with a social impact. We see a clear shift in the economy and society towards sustainable solutions. This is a good development, because as a society we have a number of serious issues: climate change, scarcity of raw materials, and social inequality. As a bank, we want to accelerate this shift towards sustainability. That is why we suppyoung, talented designers who determine the course to a better world with their products and way of thinking. This is the reason why ABN AMRO literally gives young designers a stage to present themselves. In close cooperation with Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe, we have placed 6 Hotspots on Strijp-S in front of Klokgebouw / Philitelaan where designers can present their work. The nearly 1-metre-high wingnut placed at the Hotspots is a symbol for setting things in motion and for connecting one or more elements. This is the goal of the Hotspots: putting young and talented designers into contact with other parties. Curator: Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe Take a look at the ABN AMRO Hotspots and be taken into the sustainable world of the designers.

ABN AMRO is an entrepreneurial bank with a social impact. We see a clear shift in the economy and society towards sustainable solutions. This is a good development, because as a society we have a number of serious issues: climate change, scarcity of raw materials, and social inequality. As a bank, we want to accelerate this shift towards sustainability. This is also reflected in our tightened up strategy, in which we place a heavy emphasis on sustainability. We believe that design and sustainability go hand in hand, and designers can make a difference.
