ABOUT THE HIDDEN GEMS OF DDW: Each year we make a selection of nine Hidden Gems of DDW: upcoming designers and inspiring projects that can be found on special locations throughout Eindhoven. Places you normally wouldn’t go to. During DDW you can. Under the guidance of an expert guide, you will get a peek behind the scenes of a new batch of outstanding designers.
ABOUT THE BIKE TOUR: During a meet and greet on location, the designers share the background stories of their work and you can see and hear how that work has been accomplished. In between, the guide will tell you all about the design world of Eindhoven and will take you to other special places.
TWO CYCLING ROUTES: You can choose from two routes. They both start and end at Brandstore/VVV, Stationsplein 17. (in front of the train station). One day we cycle from Eindhoven city center towards Strijp-S and the site of Piet Hein Eek. The other day, the cycling tour goes east where we meet upcoming designers on the Campina area and Sectie-C (and more).
INTERVIEWS WITH THE DESIGNERS: So, who are the Hidden Gems of 2018? Keep an eye on the websites of our media partners Innovation Origins and Dutch Design Daily to read more about this. We will publish on a daily basis interviews with the designers we selected this year.
