Featured designers produce innovative works that challenge traditional notions of public space, sustainability, architecture, fashion, functional objects, marketing, and art utilizing technology that requires no ‘making’ by hand in the traditional sense. Hands Off will showcase the development of new materials, new ways to use old technologies, and new ways of looking at and interacting with the world. Hands off will feature the work of approximately twenty designers from design hubs across the Netherlands including Eindhoven, Amsterdam, and Utrecht.
