How design leads to understanding

October 24th, 2010


Anne Mieke Eggenkamp’s opening words to the press at the Graduation Show Design Academy yesterday spoke of how the students of her institution are encouraged to treat design as a language to help them make sense of the world. Without saying too much, because I urge everyone who can to go see for themselves, the show is diverse, with references informing design, literally from the senses – smell, taste, sound, and of course touch and sight, as well as stage-of-life moments from childhood, to losing a child or even’s one’s mind in dementia, and then the things that affect us all such as language, healthcare, finance, safety, our places of habitation and how we relax. This little video will give a taster to those who need convincing to go along – and a feel for what they’ve missed out on for those who can’t make it (or choose to pass on this one). Worth spending a bit of money on seeing how the designers of tomorrow are thinking. Though not a lot of it is truly new, much of it practical and above all very beautiful.
