In EMMA #7, we zoom in on the visitor and perception. EMMA reporter Luc Loois interviews Irma Driessen, who
wrote an essay on Google and contributed to a crowdy debate this week about Google as the ultimate designer,
offering us great voyeuristic possibilities, but also influencing our way of looking and maybe even thinking.

EMMA radio: Broadcast 6, Wednesday 23 October 2013

For the first time since 1955 Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE) is present in Van Abbe Museum. EMMA reporters check out the exhibition. Special report from Van Abbe Museum, with Charles Esche (director Van Abbe) and Thomas Widdershoven (creative director DAE). For Esche it feels quite natural to welcome DAE – and EMMA – in his museum. In his view the border art and design belongs to the past.

Plus: a minute of Fashion, an instant interview with reknown French politica Martine Aubry, and the missing link between the industry and DAE. What designers need according to Widdershoven is the attitude of Dave Hakkens: ‘The industry will never take this, so let’s change the industry.’

Typical Dutch design: a sensible approach to global politics

Jana Scholze, curator of Contemporary Furniture at Victoria and Albert Museum, is at the Graduation Show to give our reporters Steffi and Anne her view on the 'Dutch-ness' of this show. What makes the Graduation Show 'Dutch' and what is Dutch design? First of all, Jana states that the show is very international. Design in the broadest sense of the word is present here, and all nationalites are represented. "However," she continues, "the approach is very very Dutch. The sensible way of looking at and dealing with global politics is striking." Some of the projects stood out. Jana mentions the work of Willem van Doorn, who has gone back to the farm where he grew up to get inspired. You would not see this in the US for example.

Other items in this show: an interview with graduates of Central Saint Martins, London.

Dutch Design Week Ambassador Daan Roosegaarde: ‘Stop making chairs, please’

An urgent request from Daan Roosegaarde today on EMMA, daily radio show made by Design Academy students. In an exclusive interview with EMMA reporter Alissa Rees, Roosegaarde gives future designers a crucial advise: ‘Stop making chairs!’

Dutch Design Week Ambassador Daan Roosegaarde (1979), known for projects as the smart high way, the sustainable dance floor and numerous interactive installations worldwide, thinks there is an incredible power in Eindhoven to explore the new role of designers’.

Roosegaarde urges designers to go ‘to the area nobody went before’ and fully engage with the world and to think about the context their ideas need to become materialized and realized. ‘There are people everywhere curious to new ways of approaching energy, public space, mobility – engage with them. That’s where you create your own space for manoeuvre and production.’
