about the exhibition
Cabinet of Collaborations is an interdisciplinary group-exhibition showcasing the processes and results from engaging collaborations between designers and industry. 

The power of differencesDespite differences, close and early collaboration can result in the implementation of creative ideas, the reshaping of production processes, or deep exchange of knowledge amongst disciplines. Approaching business priorities from a design perspective can lead to surprising findings. Do we continue past habits or adapt our system of production? Or search for balance on both sides and find the greater number?

The greater value of conversationOne of the 4 subthemes of DDW 21, this event addresses the challenges of responsible design in a time where production mass enroaches on resource availability. The projects show reciprocal interactions between creatives and industry, leading to innovative and conscientious results. At the heart of the space lies a meeting place, facilitating encounters with participating designers and their partners. Thematic dinner talk series will enhance communication to provide participants and visitors the opportunity to connect. 

This event is organized by the Dutch Design Foundation and is designed and curated in collaboration with Envisions and Rick Tegelaar.
