WE ARE THE NEXT GENERATION
Discover the designers of tomorrow.
Who are the next generation of Belgian designers within product design, architecture, graphic design and game design? Every year since 2014, Designregio Kortrijk and its partners have been looking for the most promising young designers from creative design education.
Design region Kortrijk brings together Flemish designers as part of the WONDER Creativity Festival.
BIND collective pays tribute to raw material, material, object and space. They master the knowledge of the primary phase of a material like no other and, as a collective, start from basic objectives of the famous Bauhaus training institute.
The Future of The Daily
Three promising international designers were challenged to think about The Future of The Daily. Every year since 2014, Designregio Kortrijk has invited recently graduated designers from different creative disciplines for the Designers in Residence Kortrijk programme. The selected designers for 2022 are Ila Colley, Yun-Chu Liang and Metincan Güzel.
The circular future of waste through cocreation
What happens when you get designers to think about new possibilities for old meter covers, rubber scraps or surplus sunshade textiles?The CICO hub project brought together eight Flemish designers and companies Fluvius, Sunconfex and Moerman to develop new products from waste through cocreation.
Every meal a little happiness
One of the little joys of residents of residential care centres is the whole meal event. From choosing this meal to dining together with fellow residents. For a residential care centre, however, there is a lot of organisation involved between these two phases.Designregio Kortrijk, VOKA West-Vlaanderen and Zorggroep H.Hart launched an innovation project last autumn in which the meal process within the H.Hart care group was analysed and improved on the basis of the designthinking method.Discover this process through a narrative immersive experience.
DESIGN IN SHOPS
Design region Kortrijk is showcasing their projects DESIGN IN SHOPS and Commerce Design through an interactive installation. Two projects that are a concrete result of the membership of the city and region of Kortrijk to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. These projects encourage cooperation between city-centre merchants and professional designers to optimise the commerce shop to make the neighbourhood and the commercial core more lively, unique and attractive. In this way, consumers are encouraged to make more local purchases.
