A rapidly changing world with increasingly complex multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral issues from economic, ecological, technological and social perspective, requires a new approach to solutions. For this is the network of Design Factories around the world established. In close connection with developments elsewhere, we work in the Frisian Design Factory to our joint objectives.

Challenges in the area of technology, health, welfare, energy and education call for a fresh look. A radical new approach. With our motto “We design the future, together” we build together, at the Frisian Design Factory in Leeuwarden, the world of tomorrow. From maximum participation of all sectors and working on a circular economy, the FDF contribute to an inclusive, sustainable and secure world.

International Design Factory Week 2017

October 30th to November 3rd we’ve had the annual gathering of all Design Factory representatives in the world. As tradition dictates, since it was the fourth annual gathering, we went to our fourthly established Design Factory. After the Aalto University Design Factory in Helsinki, Sino-Finnish Centre Tongji University in Shanghai, and Design Factory Melbourne in Melbourne, it was up to Design Factory Korea to host our meetup. Eric and Floris were the lucky ones to go to this Design Factory in Seoul, South-Korea.
