Students from various programs at Koning Willem I College collaborate with external clients. In the design processes, sustainability and traditions are paramount, translated into interactive presentations and performances in the Heuvel.
Students Meubeldesign conducted research into production using local and sustainable materials, such as the poplar wood along the A2 between 's-Hertogenbosch and Eindhoven. In this approach, the process is as important as the end product. In the past, furniture was made from local materials. Globalization has led to materials coming from afar and worldwide production. Now, we are returning to local production, with sustainability as the trigger.
Students Creatief work with external clients on a social issue. For a school in Malawi, the students developed a joint concept that ensures the future of the school. This includes educational and PR material. The children in Malawi do not identify with the traditional Western textbooks.
The new sanctuary
Students Artiest collaborate with a design studio. From the theme of 'tradition', the students reflected on today's faith. In the past, we all believed in a God and joined the church. At church, there were moments of contemplation, slowing down, and reflection. Nowadays, man is God himself and we must seek out those moments ourselves: in search of the new sanctuary. In an interactive installation, students will explore this new sanctuary together with the audience.
