Na het internationale succes van Dutch Design slaat een jonge generatie Nederlandse ontwerpers nieuwe wegen in. Onderzoek naar de rol en functie van design is hun uitgangspunt. Steeds draait het om de vraag: wat doen we met de overdaad? Materiaal, techniek en het ontwerpproces worden herijkt. Vernieuwing ontstaat door stil te staan. Deze designers kijken om zich heen en vragen zich af: ‘hoe kan het anders?’
