The boys and girls from Sectie-C welcome you to DDW_2019:

KAKAKAKA

The act-now-spirit that sparked the evolution of Sectie-C from abandoned industrial area to a creative hub that competes on the world stages of design and innovation, is still very much alive today.

Starting out in a time before the eggplant, when people had to construct their own suggestive emoji’s out of punctuation marks, a hand full of young designers layed the groundwork for what was to become Sectie-C, the domain of more than 300 creatives, inventors and free thinkers.

The creativity and urgency it took to see possibilities in something beyond it’s original purpose will be gladly shared during this Dutch Design Week.

We have a full program of 20 exhibitions, over 50 open ateliers, Conversations-C, Food & Drinks, workshops, Atelier Lunches/Dinners and more! So be welcome and ask yourselves: If not now, then when?

We all know this: Something is never completely finished. There is always room for improvement. You want to move forward. You want to keep growing. 

Plans and projects are in the pipeline. Your website is getting there. Your portfolio is expanding. Your career is under construction. Your company is under construction. Your ambitions are under construction. 

And yes, this exhibition is also UNDER CONSTRUCTION. 

Get up close and personal and see how young, freshly graduated design talents search, slide and spin with their graduation work, the first foundations of their professional career as a designer.

DDW_19 // Antigoon // Graphic Machinery

Graphic Machinery is an ongoing experiment by Antigoon in creating artworks with DIY computer controlled drawing machines. Four machines producing large and small scale artworks during the Dutch Design Week.
It's an exploration in freedom and restrictions that comes with building your own machines. Creating artworks with conventional tools for humans but unconventional tools for machines. Celebrating imperfections through the use of these tools. A collaboration between analog & digital and between human & machine.

19 - 27 Oct 2019

DDW_19 // Victor Sonna // Crossing Off The Cross

Throughout history, art and religion have been intimately intertwined. Most splendid works were created to celebrate the glory of God. These days, believers are increasingly hard to find and churches remain empty. Places of worship are being turned into venues for the more mundane of human pursuit.
With Crossing Off The Cross, Victor Sonna explores this process of desecration, converting unwanted religious objects such as crucifixes and candelabras into a series of 12 everyday objects including a seat, vase and ladder. In a supreme act of re-creation, Sonna destroys the original, using the brass fragments to craft an entirely new whole and function. Traces of the holy remain, but assume a different meaning in this altered, earthly context.

19 - 27 Oct 2019

DDW_19 // Paul Heijnen Studio // PH:X

The PH:X exhibition shows a unique overview of highlights from the collection of Paul Heijnen Studio, made during the past decade.
Collectors, museums and institutes made it possible to bring together a number of limited editions and one-offs in the heart of Sectie-C, where Paul Heijnen started his studio ten years ago. This collection shows the evolution of Paul's work and connects what has been to what is yet to come.

19 - 27 Oct 2019

DDW_19 // Studio Anne Ligtenberg + Atelier Mats // WE FEEL FINE

WE FEEL FINE, or better said we want to feel fine and we want to be fine with the fact that despite everything we can feel miserable. 
Anne Ligtenberg and Mats Horbach show how they use design to make the world a bit more human. 
And you feel that.
WE FEEL FINE, or better said we want to feel fine. We want to live in a nice surrounding. We want to feel heard and understood. We want do things that make us feel good. We want to be fine with the fact that despite everything we can feel miserable. 

Anne Ligtenberg and Mats Horbach show with WE FEEL FINE how they use design to make the world a bit more human. The products that we use, the spaces that we live in, the systems that we are a part of or the information that we take in need to be designed with care and attention. Because you will feel that.

DDW_19 // Wikkelhouse

Wikkelhouse is what you get when an everyday material finds a groundbreaking purpose. Using cardboard as its main building material, Wikkelhouse is a cutting-edge sustainable house with exceptional constructive strength, made up of 1.2 meter deep segments that can easily be (dis)connected.

Looking for a contemporary office or holiday home? Temporary housing or a fair stand? Wikkelhouse can be whatever you want it to be. The basic construction of the house is made up of 1.2 meter deep segments that can easily be connected and disconnected. The core of Wikkelhouse is top-quality cardboard, wrapped around a unique patented house-shaped mould. Multiple layers of cardboard are bonded together with eco-friendly glue. To protect the material, the cardboard is waterproofed using breathable foil and finished with wooden cladding boards. The result is an incredibly robust sandwich structure with optimal insulation qualities. With a weight of only 500kg per segment, Wikkelhouse doesn't need a foundation and can be placed anywhere. Each house can be extended with a smart ‘Home’-segment including a kitchen, shower and bathroom. It can hold glass of closed facades. Since Wikkelhouse is sustainably produced and made of materials that have minimal impact on the environment, it is 3x more eco-friendly than traditional housing. Moreover, the segments can be reused over and over again and are 100% recyclabe.

DDW_19 // Rive Roshan // Stilled Life

Stilled Life captures the beauty of a fleeting moment for all senses to absorb. Our eyes are free to wonder while the mind takes a pause. Our feet remind us of our sense of touch while we walk on water. 

In an ethereal landscape of spatial installations and objects, Rive Roshan explores the calming qualities of light and reflection, hoping that visitors will fully immerse themselves in this mindful experience.

The studio will present new work including a collaboration with Moooi Carpets, 3D printed sand objects and new collectible glass pieces in a curated themed installation.

DDW_19 // Agri Meets Design

This year Agri Meets Design has relocated from the Ketelhuisplein to Sectie-C. At this creative hub we present STUDIO Agri Meets Design: a place where designers, famers, policymakers, businesses and people of the Dutch Design Week come together. Since 2012 Agri Meets Design has brought the Dutch Agrofood and creative industry together with the ambition to create a future proof food system. In STUDIO Agri Meets Design we look back at seven years of best practices and accumulated knowledge. Which design principles work best for certain phases or types of change? In this week (together with enthusiastic stakeholders) we want to develop the future foundation of Agri Meets Design. For instance, how can designers contribute to a new circular agricultural food system in the Netherlands? In different workshops we embark on exciting new projects and collaborations together. Are you a designer, farmer, policymaker or food professional that wants to join us on this adventure? Stop by at the STUDIO!

DDW_19 // Enlightens (Mies Loogman) // Digestible Chunks of Information

Explore how fruits and vegetables are adjusted and could be made to feed the growing world population. Seven animations and one book give you insight in the hidden world of crop development, the complexity of our food system and makes you understand why the European food policies needs to change.

Biotechnology and biodiversity are abstract words that come to live talking about food security and urban development. To ensure food security, not just in Europe but mostly in developing countries, innovative techniques are necessary to develop edible plant or adjust existing plants to the fast changing weather conditions. These techniques exist, but they are still subject to strict legislation in Europe due to the complexity and variety of these genetic techniques. The usability of these techniques is thereby practically excluded. The Gene Machine (2017) showcases the variety and the book Genetic Modification & Sustainable Agriculture gives insight in the complexity and the context of these new techniques within the food system. From Cabbage to Super-cow (2019, NEMO), emphasizes on how these techniques work and shows the differences and comparisons. Seven additional animations make these different techniques tangible and accessible.

DDW_19 // Florian de Visser - site stories // Tourist-Site-Seeing

The downsides of tourism are becoming more visible, but at the same time tourist spots generate a fascinating culture of their own. With the Tourist-Site-Seeing project Florian de Visser looks at places of mass tourism as a cultural tourist, and translates them into large-scale conversation objects.

Earlier this year Florian organised ‘guided tours’ and talked about observations in Barcelona, Prague, Venice, Genoa and Tokyo. During the DDW he elaborates on one observation with The Hidden Gem Shop.

At places of mass tourism we look desperately for unique experiences, with as few other tourists as possible. In the streets tourist guides present themselves as real local experts and we Googles en masse for "hidden gems" and "off the beaten track". In the end we all end up in the same places. In the Hidden Gem Shop you can buy 100% unique experiences for just one euro.

In addition to the Hidden Gem Shop at Sectie-C, Florian will also design a Tourist-Site-Seeing hotel room at Hotel Insomnia / De Fabriek.

DDW_19 // Studio Daniel Costa // LUM

LUM is an archaic sound which connects us to the earth and names Daniel Costa's first line of rugs, which is rooted in the Himalayas, the ground where yak, sheep and goat graze and over hundreds of years have adopted to whipping weathers. Where the mountains set the tone to life, survival, mythology and craft.The collection is realized in collaboration with van Caster and is connected to the local spinners and weavers, as well as it is interwoven with yak farmers, who live in very remote areas high up in the Himalayas. LUM is the beginning of a long-term research project into sometimes rare or forgotten, sometimes daily and astonishing basic, or in reverse very intricate techniques of fibre-processing and rug crafting. The fibre is the beginning and expression of all textile quality, it defines the lifetime of a rug, the way it lasts and ages. Therefor Daniel chooses to work with yak fibre, which has been used by nomads to make clothes, rugs and tends, it is strong, has a primordial tune, a reassuring hand and a gentle shine. Daniel uses Tibetan sheep wool, which is characterized by its long and durable nature, nettle, a fibre with innate strength and silent beauty and goat hair, which is another mythological fibre, said to protect from evil, it is antibacterial, archaic, and lasting. LUM is the humming of a love-song to hand and fibre, matter and people, animals, plants and the fertile soil. An ode to the hand and the hand-me-down. The project is documented together with Juliette Chrétien.

DDW_19 // Jelle Mastenbroek // The Robin Who Wondered If He Was a Nightingale

Impressive improvisations from an orchestra whose work is based on your identity and the natural environment. The chirpers combine their sounds with percussive rhythms. The exceptional acoustics of Sectie-C also play a major role, combining to conjure up an unforgettable, magical experience.
The 1st Little Spotted Woodpecker, the Pigeon, the Green Woodpecker, the Moorhen, the Middle Spotted Woodpecker, the Cuckoo, the Black-billed Cuckoo, the 2nd Little Spotted Woodpecker, the Woodcock, the Owl, the Nightingale, the Black Woodpecker, the House Sparrow and the Curlew: differently feathered orchestra members work together to deliver the highest quality of improvisations and to achieve more than perfectly played notes.

DDW_19 // Rene Siebum // A Plant In The Wrong Place


The project 'A Plant In The Wrong Place' questions our perception of what is right and what is wrong. It is an ode to the small and humble in the urban landscape by giving unwanted plants a vessel to value their beauty. 

The city is a fascinating playground for observation. It is a place where nature collides with man-made structures. Narrow gaps of pavements or traffic islands form fertile interspaces, which are secretly being occupied by weeds and wild flowers. These plants are mostly unwanted in human-controlled settings and therefore in the "wrong place". 

The project is a collaboration of Rene Siebum & Tina Stieger.

DDW_19 // Exhibition // Time for a change, discovering vintage Enicar

Tuurlijk (Martijn van der Ven) + Eliska Slovakova + Mizdruk + Maarten Coolen + Verse Beeldwaren - Time for a change, discovering vintage Enicar

In 1913, Swiss watch brand Enicar was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds. It would become one of the first watch manufacturers to export watches to China in the 1950’s. With factories in Lengnau and Oensingen, the business of founder Ariste Racine made impact with high quality time pieces. Enicar sold over 800.000 wrist watches per year in more than 90 countries worldwide. And then the ‘quartz crisis’ hit. In 1987, Enicar ended. Martijn van der Ven is a long-time admirer of Enicar and its heritage. In 2018, he decided to create a book about the lost brand. He went to Switzerland to do research and interview former employees. He even traced down the grandson of Ariste Racine, now 76 years old. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Martijn was able to carry on his passion project.The book will be a combination of storytelling, interviews, design, antique advertising, watch brand history and photography. For the photography, Martijn and his team ‘recreated’ set pieces from 1979, 1971, 1968, 1944 and even 1918. These stories of magical realism, combined with poetic writing, and the first previews of the upcoming book will be presented during DDW. www.enicar.orgwww.tuurlijk.net

Eindhoven is in transition. Sectie-C is in transition. Sectie-C exists of designers and makers who think in possibilities instead of limitations. This characterizes the growing group of creative entrepreneurs perfectly, but in the meantime also has a disadvantage for the place. Why? Because many think that they can do it all by themselves at Sectie-C. And that’s a misunderstanding. The ideas across the vision document are ambitious and can’t be realized without financial support, participation and involvement of third parties. Many inhabitants of Sectie-C are well known beyond the borders of the Netherlands. We would be ignorant if we as the Netherlands, as Noord-Brabant and Eindhoven don’t take the chance to work with these people on Sectie-C to bring the terrain and thus the city Eindhoven to a higher level. The value that will be accomplished will put Sectie-C worldwide and permanently on the map. Everyone profits from that. Sectie-C welcomes you therefore. Opening up to the City.   

More information, questions, collaborations or requests: community@sectie-c.nl    




Sectie C is crowded with creatives, studio's and workshop. Wouldn't it be great to be able to join this and work together with the makers, the photographer, the designer? 

We've been making an overview with the workshops you can book right now:

- BLOCK PRINTING / 50€ per person / anytime / incl drinks / VANTOT has been traviling to India for the project ‘Crossing Lines’. We investigated in the qualities of the old handmade block-printing technique and the difference while using lasercutted blocks. The craftsmen got especially enthousiast by the correct sizes of the lasercutted ones, which made them print freely in all directions. We’ve been crossing lines, double lines and even tripled it in all directions. For the workshop you will print your own bags and develop your own patterns. 

- CERAMIC WORKSHOP's
CUPS / 90€ per person / 10h00 - 13h00 / incl coffee and thee / In the workshop you will make four porcelain cups in two different techniques. Due to similarities in color and / or pattern, they will form a beautiful set. You pour two of the four cups yourself into a plaster mold. We naturally explain how everything works and there are sufficient tips and examples given on how you can edit the (still flexible) cups. The other two cups that you are going to illustrate have already been baked once by us. With clay sludge in the most beautiful colors you will "play" and create patterns. Here too we will propose all kinds of possibilities that you can apply.

VASES / 135€ per person / 10h00 - 16h00 / incl lunch and drinks / You make a set of 4 porcelain vases in one day. The workshop consists of two different parts: Part 1: You learn how to pour vases yourself in a 2-part plaster mold using porcelain clay. We will show you various options so that you can make a unique vase with the colored cast porcelain. You make two vases here, one small and one slightly larger. These two vases are made in the ceramics workshop under the guidance of Elke. We of course explain how everything works and there are plenty of tips and examples on how you can edit the vases. Part 2: Under the guidance of Saskia Overzee you will illustrate 2 vases with fine drawings and colored glaze. To be able to decorate vases with glazes, they must have been fired for the first time (bisquit firing). We have already poured and baked the 2 vases that you will illustrate during the workshop so that you can get started right away.

- COOKING WORKSHOP / 69€ per person / 06h30 - 10h30 / incl 3 course menu, appertif, drinks incl wine and beer / For parties of 12 people, you will cook with a chef cook your own dinner. Based on the time of the year and ingredients you will make yourself a 3 course dinner.
