This year again Dennis is at Rossana Orlandi during Salone del Mobile 2013.
This year he introduces the lamp that anyone can buy. The CMYK bulb. The first LED-bulb that makes colored shadows.
For 95,- Euro CMYK light is within everybody’s reach.
According to the selection committees of peers who assessed more than 650 projects for DDA, in 2012 the quality of the work is as high as ever. Apparently, even in these tough economic times and in spite of limited resources, Dutch designers are able to come up with the most interesting and surprising concepts. The aspiration is clearly visible in the designs of all 27 finalists.
The selection committee choose the CMYK lamp for its exciting interplay of lines that has an educational function with respect to the action of light. It is also a highly aesthetic object.
Divided into three main categories, the lamp was placed into the category ‘Autonomous Design‘, 27 designs in total will compete for the prizes. An international jury will decide who are going to carry off the awards. All winners will be announced at an official award ceremony on Sunday, October 21 during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. That same week, from October 20 through October 28, the work of all finalists will be exhibited together in a special exhibition.
During salone del mobile, design academy eindhoven launches the ’50′ exhibition in milan. From 17 to 22 april 2012, the academy presents her vision on design with a selection of 50 key projects of recent bachelors and masters graduates. Design academy eindhoven presents 50 graduate projects that have a firm connection with life and a desire to make sense of it.
Ilse Crawford, the British designer and curator of Design Academy Eindhoven and this exhibition, presents a clear philosophy: “50 Graduate projects with a firm connection to life and a desire to make sense of it. Design is at its best when it addresses real needs.” In this manner, she indicates that the current design projects reflect the needs of society. The designers of the future make a connection with economic, social and cultural aspects in our society and shape real matters.
