Designing A New Industrial Revolution – 3rd edition

21.06–15.09.2013

The New Institute
Rotterdam

The industrial revolution was a revolution for engineers. Now designers are at the forefront of a new revolution. They are part of networks that enable them to develop new materials and systems, build their own machines, and seek new tools for production and distribution. These developments offer an alternative to mass production and open paths to a new economy and society.

The Machine is an ongoing exhibition concept that explores “the machinery deployed by designers who appropriate tools, material and systems and use them to help shape the future of production, consumption and more generally our relation to goods.” (Quote by Regine Debatty)

Designing a New Industrial Revolution – 1st edition

02.06 – 07.10.2012
C-mine Designcentrum, Genk

The industrial revolution was a revolution for engineers. Now designers are at the forefront of a new revolution. They are part of networks that enable them to develop new materials and systems, build their own machines, and seek new tools for production and distribution. These developments offer an alternative to mass production and open paths to a new economy and society.

New machines impact society. This is clearly highlighted in the area of Genk, with its history of being an industrial leading city in Flanders. The Machine shows how new machines in our lives and our society will shape the future. The concept of The Machine is in contrast with the industrial past of C-mine as a former mining area, where the contemporary machinery marks Genk as one of the most prominent industrial cities of Flanders.

Design Hub Limburg presents The Machine,  an interactive exhibition, accompanied by an extensive program with workshops, events and designers in residence. There will be a fashion workshop by DSGNRMRKT, a broad introduction into 3-D printing, and a workshop in collaboration with Fablab Genk around the hacking of everyday devices. A network evening will bring industry and designers together for an exchange about future business. In order to give an insight in the design process, a selection of designers will be invited for a residency at C-Mine.
