Envisions Hackathon - generating new visions
Illustration by Envisionaire Elvis Wesley

The Envisions Hackathon, which will take place during Dutch Design Week 2020, will give a dynamic look into how we work and collaborate as a team. Every day, a group of Envisionaires will react on objects from modern life, such as part of a car or a household appliance.

What guises could these modern life fragments take if Envisions became part of the industrial design process? Beyond being a familiar canvas for Envisionaires to play with, these objects embody a framework that projects our collective vision into the world. More than ever, we are giving insight into our multifaceted creative process while delving into unfamiliar but exciting territory. These reconfigurations will open up a dialogue with unexplored industries.

While being open to Dutch Design Week visitors, regular updates on our digital platforms and a live-stream will offer observation and knowledge for those who cannot visit in person. During the 6-day performance - which results in 6 hacked showcases - the Envisionaires will operate from a playground created to optimise collaborative reactions.



Envisions is a designlab, uniting over 20 multidisciplinary creatives with a shared fascination for experimental material research. In collaboration with renowned industry partners, Envisions critically re-envisions current processes of production, focussing primarily on the path leading up to the end product. Through this process, Envisions offers the industry new perspectives on their materials, techniques and products and facilitate new visions that will shape the future of tomorrow.
