Product Design and Interaction Design have sought common ground for students to explore the dynamics of crossover work in the digital and the material domains. The departments collaborate to research the relevance and purpose of design, in order to enable the students to craft a different awareness of the world they will work in. The two departments co-hosted Uncertainty Studios during the Dutch Design Week.
Uncertainty Studios was the result of a collaborative research project in which uncertainty and relevancy were investigated through physical and digital gestures, information design and material explorations. Uncertainty Studios consisted of young and established alumni, a research project by 3rd-year students and a series of lectures on lightness, sound, fiction and psychology by international guests such as Hillel Schwarz (US), Nuno Coelho (UK), Ed van Hinte (NL) and Noam Toran (UK).
