Together with Het IJzeren Gordijn, we founded HOUDT, a design competition that aims to kickstart the careers of young designers. We sought the assistance and advice from the BNO, Premsela (the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion), FSC Nederland, and many others who all helped shape the contest in into what it is today.
After HOUDT's introduction at the Dutch Design Week 2012 the first entries are already pouring in! We also offer seminars to make students aware of the contest, and of the fascinating possibilities that wood products have for design.
Kick-off at the Dutch Design Week 2012.
