Daily Design Area Recap: DOWNTOWN

DDW consists of eight design areas and of course the city centre is one of them! The area stretches from the PSV-stadium to the Van Abbemuseum and offers something for everyone. Let’s go downtown and explore!

A discarded petrol station, right at the Markt in Eindhoven, as a metaphor for changing energy consumption. THANK YOU FOR THE SUN lets you take a new look at energy. In the Warehouse of Innovation, the former V&D-building, Modebelofte shows you the forefront of young fashion designers. A couple of blocks away is Kazerne, with a beautiful exhibition on impermanence by Studio Drift and SOFTWEAR by Lidewij Edelkoort and Kiki van Eijk. On the VDMA-site you will see Dave Hakkens and his team working on Precious Plastic. TAC is also well worth a visit, with a great selection of (international) designers. And don't forget to take a look inside the Catharinakerk...

Want a little break of exploring, and listen?

Join the Social Design Debate in TAC on Wednesday. The event is prequelled by a talk between DWW ambassador Ravi Naidoo and Anna Noyons. Or join our other ambassador, Wendy Plomp, at the FranklinTill x Dutch Invertuals talk at their studio (Fuutlaan 12b) where they explore the role of design, production and consumption in moving towards LESS instead of more.
