LATERASSE vol no. 4 - Fantasy, Dutch Design Week 2017, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
La Terrasse is a platform that unites designers and writers around one theme. A quote is selected to inspire and provoke designers, who express their interpretation of the chosen subject through products and text. At the same time, poets, critical thinkers, and design theorists offer their own reflections through writing. These two modes come together into a joint framework through exhibitions, which build new forms of cooperation between diverse contributors. I contributed a text for this year exhibition.
