Graduation Show 2020

endorsed by
Design Academy Eindhoven is one of the world’s leading design schools, recognised for its forward-thinking nature. Over the past few years, our Graduation Show has become an eagerly anticipated annual event, drawing visitors from across the world to experience the ideas of our graduates.

This year of course, external circumstances have pushed us to adapt beyond the physical graduation show that we had hoped and planned for. Amidst the unpredictability that this year has brought, being able to exchange our thoughts and ideas is still as important as ever. As a result, there are a number of new ways to proudly showcase the work of over 180 graduates, who have shown immense adaptability and resilience in creating their projects under these extraordinary circumstances.

Virtual Tours at
By clicking on the “start virtual tour” button, you have the possibility to visit a virtual exhibition of each of our eight bachelors’ departments of Leisure, Food Non Food, Communication, Identity, Well-Being, Public Private, Motion, and Activity, alongside our four masters’ departments, in Social Design, Contextual Design, Information Design, and The Critical Inquiry Lab. There, our graduates will display their work in 3D viewing rooms, where you also have the opportunity to connect with them, watch livestreams and more.

The Arena – Dialogues On Design
With the excellence of Graduates’ work and design research at its heart, The Arena is Design Academy Eindhoven’s in-house platform for debate and discussion. An online programme will broadcast live on DDW TV and DAE’s Instagram, covering aspects of the graduates’ design practice that inform and surpass a final object or outcome.

Daily panel discussions will take place on DDW TV from 14:30-15:30, in which graduates and prominent professionals will discuss topics of institutional critique, bio-politics, collective care, power structures, and cultural heritage. There will also be two daily sessions of interactive graduate talks, workshops and performances streamed on the @designacademy instagram at 12:00 and 18:00 daily. Additionally, Graduates will also be hosting the (G)Radio show on RaRaRadio on Sunday 18th from 11:00 (, @gradio.gs20).

Meanwhile at, each graduate has their own page featuring pictures, written descriptions, podcasts and more relating to their project. The work of all students can also be browsed alphabetically or by department.
