In October 2007, The Designhuis opened its doors for the public for the first time in October 2007, led by Lidewij Edelkoort (2007-2009), and later on Leonne Cuppen (2010) and Het Nieuwe Instituut (2011-2014). With a portfolio of activities and exhibitions of world class, this institute became a platform and meeting spot for Design and innovation, and where Design is connected to Art and Technology.
Since then, the Designhuis presented, among others:
_"Bold" by Studio Job (2007)
_"Family of Form, 60 years Design Academy Eindhoven" (2008)
"Form and volume, Design as Strategy" (2009)
"Archeologie van de toekomst" (2009)
"Liberation of Light" (2010)
"Spring: Excellence, Talent and Inspiration in Design" (2011)
"Connecting concepts" (2012)
“Food Culture: Eating by Design” (2012)
"Designing Health" (2013)
After a period of closure for restructuring and rethinking the public function of the building, the Designhuis is now being reactivated with a community-driven programming team and strategy, led by Jorge Alves Lino and Remco van de Craats.
For a place called the designhuis, it's not planned very well.
