Making Money, part of ‘I’ts Your World’
The project was part of the exhibition ‘Its Your World’ at Strijp-S, Eindhoven during the Dutch Design Week. About the exhibition: Our daily waste, the manufacture of mobile telephones, the bacteria on our skin or asylum seekers who have been denied residency. These are not topics we immediately associate with design. But these are in fact the areas where smart design or the power of imagination in design can make a difference. It’s Your World presents four mini-exhibitions in which designers show how they see our world.
