SHORT HISTORY
Initiated and directed by li edelkoort, the designhuis in eindhoven seeks to become a local yet international platform for design, enabling young designers to emerge and their creative talents to be recognised and encouraged. Recent design exhibitions have featured surveys of contemporary glass, the dutch bike, design for the volume market and the work of studio job. 21 Selected designers from 11 different countries present an archaic view of design with an interest in radical primitive materials as earth, cow-dung, wood, cardboard, textiles, bone and hide. They try to escape from a world of over-consumption with unplugged proposals taken from the roots of humanity with humble yet forceful form.
