Essay Competition Design Academy Eindhoven

The competition was organized by the Lectoraat (Professorship) Design Theory in late February in order to encourage design students’ extending their expertise and developing a vision on design. Because the subject ties in with ‘MyWay’, DAE’s presentation during the Salone del
Mobile in Milan, we set the deadline for entries for 28 March 2011. A month to describe a view on future roles for designers – no easy task!

All essays were judged by a panel of 5 jury members, all involved in the DAE curriculum in different ways: Danielle Arets, Ilse Crawford, Anne Mieke Eggenkamp, Bas Raijmakers and Louise Schouwenberg.The jury panel has judged the essays on their originality, innovative points of view, style of writing, and the extent to which the piece addresses the thesis.The jury has appointed one winner and two honorary mentions.

The winner: THE TABULA RASA AND THE LABYRINTH by Tamar Shafrir.
Honorary mentions: THE UTOPIAN LENS by Taylor Gilbert and WHAT WILL IT MEAN TO BE A DESIGNER IN THE FUTURE by Adrian Madlener.
