After a while without physical exhibitions, now it's time to discover the inspiring work of young design talents at Schellens Fabriek in Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week 2021.

Isola Talents Factory

The talents come from several design schools such as Design Academy Eindhoven, ArtEZ, and WDKA. With their work, they are showing a broad range of designs.

Isola Talents Factory is curated by Wisse Trooster for Isola. Wisse is a designer who also became a design scout and design influencer and he is collecting Dutch Design on his Instagram account @wisse_design.

Composition artist and design collector Berry Dijkstra, @berrydijkstra, has been invited to create the exhibition's centerpiece, including the participant's works. His set design will bring back the factory vibe to Schellens.

With special thanks to the material sponsors Baars & Bloemhoff and Pfleiderer for their laminated chipboards made with recycled wood and Plano Plastics for their Alucobond sheets. After Dutch Design Week these materials are going to Isola Talents Factory participants Teun Zwets and Studio Fabius Clovis to be transformed into beautiful design pieces.
