The exhibition shows how advanced technology is used by designers to mimic existing natural phenomena. In an attempt to reconnect mankind to its natural environment, the former DDW ambassadors try to identify the underlying mechanisms of the natural world. For the occasion, large installations from Studio Drift's Flylight and Fragile Future III will be on display. Besides that, the exhibition includes a video installation of their project Franchise Freedom, which could be seen live earlier this year above the grounds of NASA’s Rocket Garden.

Change is the catalyst for the winners of Dutch Design Awards 2018
29 Jun, 2018
For the 24 winners of the Dutch Design Awards 2018, bringing about change is the most important motivator. None of the designers bow to the pressure of prevailing conventions, structures, systems or patterns (of thinking). Designers draw upon traditional design traits such as playfulness, or inventive narrative concepts as easily as their socially-engaged and disruptive view of the world according to the jury. This 16th edition of Dutch Design Awards presents several prizes per category. The work of all category winners will be shown during Dutch Design Week (20-28 October 2018), when the overall winner of the Future Award will also be announced.
