dutchDesign 2013 – a video interview

Dutch Design 2013: de Culinaire Werkplaats from Dutch Design on Vimeo.

“i consider myself to be a storyteller and food is my material. i like to provoke questions. if you want to find solutions, then you first have to find the right questions. otherwise, you get nowhere. that’s what we are doing. it’s always about questions. the answers are of less importance to us.” states marjolein in a video interview

with a group of very enthusiastic students of the simon fraser university (sfu) in vancouver, canada. they were on a field trip in the netherlands researching dutch designers for their program dutchDesign 2013.

dutchDesign is an undergraduate field school and research program offered by the school of interactive arts + technology (siat) at sfu under the directorship of russell taylor, senior lecturer in design at siat.

dutchDesign is part of a larger research project that has been studying the same phenomena in Italy with the italiaDesign field school program since 2004. The most significant contribution to the field are the interviews conducted in the Netherlands with leading designers, thinkers, architects and design manufacturers. each year, the new team builds on the previous year’s research.

 

Thank you for visiting us!

Unfortunately De Culinaire Werkplaats is closed permanently.

Sometime next year we will be publishing a book about this unique place.
