Specially commissioned by Cosmit, Pritzker Prize 2008 winner Jean Nouvel’s project explored the possibilities of the ” Likable Workplace “.
He explored contemporary building concepts informed by a rejection of cloned, alienating, standardised and serially repetitive spaces, inspiring exhibitors and visitors with different ways of achieving alternative workspace environments.
The Design Academy of Eindhoven ( DAE ) alumni presented their graduation projects in Milan, Italy: at the Lambretto Art Project Building.
The ‘self’ in the exhibition title still first and foremost refers to the student. The Design Academy of Eindhoven is fully focused on the talents, preferences and fascinations of its students. For their graduation they have to initiate projects themselves, in which these come to the fore.
But when you look at those projects – about healthcare, open source production, new economic systems – they come across as pretty altruistic. Contemporary design is very much oriented toward the ‘unself’.’
