In No Particular Order. DDW 2015
The Dutch Design Week (DDW) in Eindhoven came to an end on 25 October 2015. While we were there we came across three very different projects that we would like to highlight for you, our readers. All of the projects are currently still a work in progress, but are set to continue into the future.
The Veemgebouw – a building in Strijp-S that became one of the venues for the DDW for the first time this year – hosted the “In No Particular Order” exhibition curated by Agata Jaworska for Creative Industries Fund NL, among other events. The selection of projects by 36 designers working in areas like product design, graphic design, illustration, photography, architecture, fashion and e-culture on display aimed to provide insights into the approaches and working methods of a new generation of designers. While the exhibition at the Veemgebouw (which had to close temporarily due to overcrowding) gave a first glimpse at their work, the website of “In No Particular Order” goes into much greater depth. It not only complements the exhibition, but also serves as a standalone archive. Each of the designers involved has supplied visual and audio material that, together with keywords and filters, offers visitors to the website one private, albeit digital, tour of their work after the other. The only downside to the virtual exhibition is that some of the oral commentaries and explanations are only available in Dutch.
