Moving Dutch Design Week online
The Corona-virus has forced the world to think differently. Everyone is searching for a new balance, without losing our human touch. How can we, designers, help facilitate this? In a way we know best: by continuing to inspire with beautiful, innovative design. Design that creates new ideas, new opportunities. Sharing positivity and creativity with the world. An intriguing challenge, that we, as Dutch Design Weeks digital partner, happily took on. Together, we make Dutch Design Week 2020 a (virtual) reality.
We started to think about the concepts 'room' and 'space’. What makes a room? What role does light play? In our research, we build upon the pioneers of virtual experiences in gaming, VR and 3D experiences like NITE HOTEL by Halie.nl, Borrel.app by Q42, Playbour City Engines by Tetem & De Rodina, VanMoof by Resn, and Mozilla's Mixed Reality Platform.
