Over the last years, Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE) developed the healthy tradition to start the busy Milan days with a solid breakfast talk. From Wednesday 9 till Saturday 12, we will invite acknowledged design thinkers and makers for nourishing discussions. In three morning sessions and one tea-talk, we will discuss how design education can stimulate a healthy ego, what role designers can play for societal issues and the creative economy and how we can create a flourishing culture for design critique. The talks are also a good moment to introduce our new directors, Thomas Widdershoven (creative director) and Tonny Holtrust (educational director) as well as our new master programme Design Curating and Writing that will start from September this year.
All talks will be moderated by Tracy Metz, journalist and author on urban and spatial issues. Our own Radio channel, Radio Emma, will take care of designed intermezzo’s. 

We welcome you to nurture your body and the mind!

Secret Cookie Factory!

Would you give your personal secrets to a stranger? You will be very tempted by this group of cookie makers. The Secret Cookie Factory is an unresistable factory. The Cookie Factory will be in L.A.P. every day.

The Secret Cookie Factory are:

Radio EMMA

Obstinate, playful, thorough and creative, Student Radio EMMA will manifest itself in Milan.

Radio EMMA was born at the Dutch Design Week, where it proved to be the ideal medium for generating information in a designerly way. In Milan EMMA will prove its own unique journalistic qualities with in depth interviews, creative intermezzo’s at the Breakfast talks, questionnaire’s and its own interpretation of the Salone del Mobile.

Please keep track of the recordings at our page and on Facebook
