Students project at International Design Biennal in Liège
The fifth edition of the International Design Biennial in Liège invites you from 1st to 24th October 2010 to discover nature, source of inspirations and of various interpretations as well as matter of social, economic and philosophical issues. Nature inevitably refers to Man and to his relationship with it. The history of design with its schools and personalities has offered us an exceptional illustration of these diverse evolutions for more than a century. Between creation and economy, this discipline is today no longer a simple form of expression but an actor of our Western societies. This privileged position implies lively dialogues with other disciplines such as architecture, fashion or visual arts and is a reality that the Biennial wants to echo in many ways.
In the heart of the Biennial, the Espace Saint-Antoine, Musée de la Vie wallonne, welcomes the main exhibition Design Nature, which presents the projects of sixty designers selected by an international jury as well as projects of Design Schools from the EMR. As guests of honour, the French designer Mathieu Lehanneur, the Designskolen Kolding (Denmark) as well as REcentre, the valuation centre in eco-design from the Euregio Meuse-Rhine.
Visit the biennale and you will also find some work of the students Productdesign of the MAD-faculty campus C-mine.
