MAKE THE FUTURE is welcoming the curious, the open-minded, the extraordinary and the autonomous.
Discover a range of exhibits, talks, performances and more during Dutch Design Week.
In this group exhibition MAKE THE FUTURE we lay hold of the archetypes and how we play with expectations and identity without tapping into new sources. The non-conformist designers, researchers and artists open up everything that really matters and start moving into neoteric realities to find new roads to cultivation.
How important is design if we already have too much? How many chairs can one own? Can we re-use ideas? How can we learn to (re-)assemble? How do you reverse the process of the makers industrialization? Should we discuss the process of the maker-mind?
Will we develop greater clarity about what should be? Will artists play a more important role in understanding context and the nature of change? Will thinkers and makers merge or continue down separate paths? Will design sustain?
Let us use disruptive power to change awareness and acting. We play to see, understand and act.

The Color Biolab is a transdisciplinary research project that aims to reflect on the possibilities of new coloring sources, from traditional coloring to living organisms or waste and the implications involved.
Currently, the Digital Craft collection comprises textiles as well as reinterpretations of standard, mass-produced plastic products such as crates, juxtaposing craft and industry.
The dried blood from an animal, crushed to a powder, is showing the occurred movements from an intangible space. The space between human and animal and life and death. The dissolution process stops by withdrawing the water from the blood. The physical leftovers as the memory of the past and the transformation process.
Drag identity comes forward by playing with expectations, appropriating characteristics of known symbols and pushing forward a dramatic sense of self. Can we learn to imply diversity and creativity to make the future not only interesting but also more sustainable?
This bold piece is totally manual 3D printed; using a 3D printer-pen as a tool to create unique structures and surfaces. The production process – that is of great importance to the artist – bears witness to the synergistic potential of cutting edge technology and the respect for craftsmanship.
Koot is continuously mixing and matching old fashioned-techniques and analogue crafts with the possibilities of digital tools, exploring the potentials of modern technology in contemporary design.
