Previously on show at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, this exhibition presents works by three generations of Design Academy Eindhoven graduates.

Maarten Baas, Piet Hein Eek, Joris Laarman, Hella Jongerius, and Nacho Carbonell are just a few of the names on display. The show presenting work by three generations of graduates of Design Academy Eindhoven was on view in 2007 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, and the Institut Neérlandais in Paris.

Identity of design
In an overview of sixty years of the Design Academy Eindhoven, well-known designs like the Bugaboo, and the Citybike by
Giant rub shoulders with the designs of the latest crop of design graduates. The exhibition, which was well received, testifies to the theme that has developed over the past years: the pursuit of the identity of design. According to the organisers 'The young designer investigates the ideals of beauty and individuality, and the materialization of physical or virtual form. He searches for human and personal values, for dignity and balance. He reaches surprising insights, dares to make a stand, designs new materials, and invents new techniques. Time and weight measuring instruments are deployed in innovative ways, and there is a predilection for manual connections and mechanical movements.'

Design House, Eindhoven, until 23 March 2008.
Opening hours Tuesday through Sunday 11 – 18
