For the fifth time, Designregio Kortrijk welcomes recent graduated designers from the various creative disciplines for the Designers in Residence Kortrijk program.
During a residence of 3 months (September to December 2018), the selected designers will have the unique opportunity to develop an experimental concept for the future of space(s), through confrontation between citizens, society, entrepreneurs and education in regions such as Kortrijk.

Our 3 international designers introduce themselves to you:
Jasna Dimitrovska, °1983
"I am a designer and an artist working with both tangible and intangible media. I love writing technology and science, 'what if' scenarios based on research and mapping out the designs to their finest detail. I also have a passion for Neo-futuristic designs and augmented reality applications.
As an artist I build tangible models, prototypes and cultural probes in order to investigate the meaning of human interaction with digital objects. At the moment, my challenge is the non-human factor of materiality where various materials and media are connected in a system that needs to meet large number or parameters and protocols.
And yes- TECHNOLOGY WILL SAVE US"

Kazumasa Takada, °1991
"I am an architect born in Japan and based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
I co-founded an architectural design studio PAN-PROJECTS in Copenhagen and have worked on several projects around Europe and Japan. I conceive architecture as a creation formed by fabrication of social elements and I develop my work based on this concept. My projects are featured with the process of reinterpretation of each unique characteristic of the places, and reconstruct the relationships of elements to fabricate my works.
My representative works include Paper Pavilion (Denmark, 2017), Infinite Field (Japan, 2016)."
Jaenam Lim, °1987
London, United Kingdom
"I am a Spatial Designer based in London, graduated from The Royal College of Art in Interior Architecture. I enjoy thinking about various aspects of interiors within an urban context and I am interested in creating immersive spaces that blur conventional spatial boundaries.
Making physical objects is one of my favorite methods in my design process to bring conceptual ideas into the real world."
