Gallery: Design Academy Eindhoven 11.11.08

words Anna Bates

Design Academy Eindhoven shouldn’t be in financial difficulty any time soon – the school has recently been given special status by the Dutch government, and awarded extra funding. We’re looking forward to seeing what they spend it on, because the graduation show this year was excellent. Continuing last year’s move to the more understated, “this year, the work was tactile, subtle, and as a whole, the projects tended to be smaller,” says Anne Mieke Eggenkamp, the school’s soon-to-be chairwoman. “There’s a love for craft and construction – the work was more contemplative. People stayed longer in the exhibition, it asked for your attention.”
