The resource platform is a collaboration of Kringwinkel Turnhout and the research group Art|Object & Design of the MAD-faculty (Media, Arts & Design faculty – KHLim/PHL).

Their goal is to make open source designs using materials and products that are gathered by Kringwinkel Turnhout.  They aim to make the design process and manufacturing of these new designs open by sharing the proces through online social media and workshops they will be doing in our lab.
Central in the philosophy of their product designs is the relationship between user and product.  They try to optimize this relationship by stimulating awareness of what is waste and what is not, and by involving the user in the design process.
They are based in the Antwerp area, so drop by if you want to share anything with them or just want to have look.  You can also reach them through Twitter or their website.

REcentre presents the exhibition ECODESIGN

Posted by ilse on Thursday September 30th 2010 at 09:17

The Meuse-Rhine Euregion is active at the environmental and sustainability level. The local companies are pioneering. We think it is important to show good and valuable examples of companies with sustainable products and services. The exhibition has become a case example of what happens at economical level around environment and ecology. From cleaning products to hybrid cars, they have one thing in common: their sustainable nature.

Location: Ancienne Halle aux Viandes, Rue de la Boucherie 4, 4000 Liège.

Expo: 10th of October until 24th of October, free access, 1pm-6pm (Tue-Sat) ; 10am-3pm (Sun). A visit outside the opening hours can be arranged on request.
