Design as Service Symposium

Share Button







Op 26 oktober, tijdens de Dutch Design Week, zal er een uniek symposium plaats vinden. Verschillende partijen zullen kijken naar de ‘state-of-the-art’ rol van design in product-service innovatie. Onder andere Johan Sanders, Paul Gardien en Jeroen van Erp zullen komen spreken.


How are the roles of designers changing, as they often no longer provide a service to one organization, but rather collaborate in open and networked innovation consortia? And what does the increasingly strategic contribution of design to innovation mean for the product-service offering of organizations?

Known from his open innovation approach Johan Sanders, innovation director at SaraLee definitely knows what service design can offer for a multinational corporation. And let’s be frank, it all starts with good coffee. After this warming up, Paul Gardien director new solutions at Philips Design will stress the importance of understanding people for good design. Jeroen van Erp (Fabrique) will moderate the Question and Answer session afterwards.

9:00 am to 13:00 pm

3D printing at home – Seminar

3D printing at home is going to change the way we are living! We will be able to print everything we have designed in the comfort of our home.

3D Printing is hot. All over the world new initiatives start to offer 3D printing services, and more and more companies are using 3D printers for rapid prototyping and/or low volume production. 3D printer prices are getting lower, and some organizations are offering 3D printers below 1000 Euro.

3D printing at home is the central theme of the 3D Printing Event, which will take place during the Dutch Design Week, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, October 2011.

The event exists out of three linked activities:

  • The seminar will tackle social, technical, cultural and design challenges, discuss innovative solutions, show new business opportunities and will give an outlook into the future of 3D home printer industry.
  • The exhibition will show 3D printing in its current and future formats
  • The 3D Printing Design competition exhibition will show the best selections of designs printed with a future home 3D printer.

Super TU/esday – “Design is Science”

Share Button

When asked what Design is all about, people will often use terms like “art”, “styling” and “intuition”. One of the words that is unlikely to be mentioned is “science”. Nevertheless, last year “Industrial Design” celebrated its 40th anniversary as academic discipline and this year our department of Industrial Design celebrates its 10th anniversary as academic department at the Eindhoven University of Technology.

As part of our lustrum celebrations the department of Industrial Design organises an academic debate on “Super TU/esday“, October 25th. The theme of the debate is: “Design is Science

During this debate two eminent researchers will shed their light on this question. The debaters will be:

Prof.dr. Bill Buxton, Chief designer at Microsoft, dr. honoris causa and distinguished visting professor of our university;
Prof.dr. E.W. Meijer, Spinoza Laureate and professor of Chemical Engineering at our university.

SuperVISIE-Salon – Debat

A Tale of Two Cities – In dezelfde jaren ’70 groot geworden als steden met een modern imago kunnen Almere en Eindhoven van elkaar leren. Met een vergelijkbare omvang zijn de beide steden te karakteriseren als ‘een tros dorpen’ met een steeds stedelijker karakter. Gaat de vergelijking ook verder? De tentoonstelling toont parallellen en verschillen in ontwikkeling en laat de zoektocht zien naar een eigen identiteit.
