Design Academy Eindhoven + Royal College of Art, at MUDAC Lausanne, Switzerland
The museum has made a habit of offering its spaces to recent graduates of the Swiss universities of art and design. It has now been incited to open its doors to the latest generation of European creators, as a way of exploring recent trends beyond its national boundaries. The DAE and the RCA both have a highly innovative approach to design, and neither have any qualms about challenging the conventional functionality of objects. Therefore they tend to come up with experimental and conceptual pieces imbued with humour and poetry. Here, the exhibition rooms have been invested with a selection of projects by students or recent graduates reflecting their preoccupations with sustainability, social issues, immigration, health, etc.
