08 May 2017 HighTech meets Design
The next gear towards creative innovation
The strong design and high tech scene in Eindhoven creates impressive concepts where these two worlds collide. Still, there is a huge potential for these powers to put their creative heads together.
What we have seen so far is only a sample of the possibilities; there is more ground to win. Designers have great ideas that too often remain in their conceptual stages.
High-tech companies have innovations on their shelves waiting for designers to invent applications for them.
Solliance challenges designers to develop ideas based on energy generating solar raods and pavements. What do you think when I say “Solar Square”? What ideas come up on a concept of open urban spaces combined with the urban hunger for energy?
So let’s meet up on the 16th of May for the second edition of ‘HighTech meets Design’ and create an innovation arena to turn our fantastic design and tech qualities into a key resource for business.
This DDW kick-off event will lead up to a presentation of cases, products and new alliances during Dutch Design Week 2017.
