program

The Beauty of Waste is the theme of the sideprogram of Designday this edition. It could not be more relevenat currently, now that more and more designers, architects, companies and organisations are working on sustainability, waste streams and the circular economy. In an extensive side program with lectures and workshops, Designday shows that designers come up with the most creative ideas to solve the problem of (litter) waste. Well-known and incipient talented designers are invited to reflect on three themes: Recycle, (Re)-use and Prevent.

Design route

A special design route in Maastricht, that Designday has set out can be visited from May 7th. This time the route is more diverse and extensive than last year. The route leads along streets with special design shops, through the historic Jekerkwartier with its many churches and monasteries and the bustling Sphinxkwartier, the cultural, creative and entrepreneurial district under development. Besides a visit to the Vrijthof, there is also a lot inspiration to shop: from the Bijenkorf to a small shop. And of course the nicest places are chosen for coffee, Limburg vlaai, beer or organic lunch. So before, after or during the Designday event: take a tour of Maastricht hotspot and be surprised.

1koloms__0003_dinerOPENING DINNER

The theme ‘The beauty of waste’ will be literally translated this year in the opening dinner on 25 May. Designer and cook Cas Driessen will work with La Pepita by Vroegop (a Maastricht hotel and catering company/shop/caterer who works with fresh seasonal products) to prepare a dinner as residual products, sustainable local products and packaging. An interactive and playful dinner that makes guests aware of the origin of products and their preparation. Designed as a design dinner in an attractive restaurant with special crockery and glassware. This evening starts out at 5pm with some drinks.

This dinner is a networking opportunity par excellence. More and more entrepreneurs and design lovers are finding their way to our table. Send an email to backoffice@designday.nl to make a reservation for dinner. Price including BTW is €48,-
