Teaching and workshops
We are proud that we are often asked for teaching and directing design workshops at several
locations in the world. We also taught in the Netherlands at a.o. the Design Academy Eindhoven,
Royal Academy of Art The Hague, Haagse Hogeschool (for which we advised the educational structure
for the department Industrial Product Design as well) and the Academy for Design in Arnhem. It is not
our mission to become design teachers but we do like to debate, discuss and develop conceptual and
marketing quality with students at design schools.
