Greetings from Maastricht: a look at innovative entrepreneurship
From 11 November 2017 – 7 January 2018, you could step into the world of Maastricht’s makers and (re-)discover the history of the oldest industrial city in the Netherlands. The exhibition gave you the chance look behind the scenes at Maastricht’s leading production companies and marvel at the products and services that are putting Maastricht on the global map.
Product designer Dirk Ploos Van Amstel, product designer Riccardo Belli and designer Ronald Meijs presente themselves as 2nd group 'Entrepreneurial Designers' in the Eiffel building until 8 December.
'Enterprising Designers' - part of the Groeten uit Maastricht exhibition - shows talent from different design disciplines and from different generations.
Each from their own knowledge and skills, often beyond the boundaries of their own field.
Every two weeks a new three designers * is central: they represent a certain (design) discipline and are also forerunners of contemporary trends and trends within design. These designers reuse materials, work on circular co-creative systems and craft, poetic or playful strategies. The broadening of the design discipline is illustrated by an insight into this thriving Maastricht biotope and in the motives and products of the designers.
The renaissance of the creative culture in Maastricht is supported by these Enterprising Designers and their peers.
The Entrepreneurial Designers have been selected by Kunstacademie Maastricht Zuyd (Chequita Nahar) and Bureau Europa, platform for architecture and design (Saskia van Stein) for the 'Greetings from Maastricht' project at the invitation of the Municipality of Maastricht.
