Waag at Dutch Design Week 2021

Imagine the possibility of designing a whole new planet. What would it look like? We’ll call it Planet B. What would you take with you, and what would you leave behind? 

To design the future, we need to look at systemic changes in the present. ‘Come and get your future’ is Waag’s installation at Dutch Design Week. We’ll take you on a journey through the themes of ecology, technology, materials and more.

How do we get everyone at the table to co-design the future?

How do we get everyone at the table to co-design the future? How do we make sure it represents everyone of us?

In ‘Come get your future’ you’ll get inspired, listen to and look at new designs, methods and visions for an open, fair and inclusive future. Your input is crucial! You can leave a message for the future, or add your dreams and ideas. Together we’re designing a future that works for everyone.

Waag is a Future Lab for technology and society. This year we’ve traversed the Netherlands to ask people about their ideal futures, and how to get there. Join us, come and get your future!

About Dutch Design Week

In October of each year, Dutch Design Week (DDW) takes place in Eindhoven. The biggest design event in Northern Europe presents work and ideas of more than 2600 designers to more than 350,000 visitors from home and abroad. In more than 110 locations across the city, DDW organizes and facilitates exhibitions, lectures, prize ceremonies, networking events, debates and festivities. DDW concentrates on the design of the future and the future of design.

Each year, Waag participates in DDW through the Embassy of Health, where we will expose our project Hollandse Luchten this time. We're proud that next to this, Waag will be part of the main exposition of DDW at the Klokgebouw, as a Future Lab for technology and society, with Come and get your future.
