This Dutch Design Week, Fillip Studios presents two new projects at two different locations: Adaptable Auxetics and Maacq Oase. Read on to find out more about these projects and the general theme of DDW21.

In response to the corona crisis and the questions that it indirectly evoked about climate change, inclusivity, wellbeing and much more, Dutch Design Week 2021 calls for reflection and change with the theme The Greater Number: “a future where there is a constant search for a better number — sometimes less, sometimes more but then of higher quality, and sometimes simply different.” During DDW21, this quest is explored from four different perspectives or subthemes: It’s In Our NatureThings That MatterCabinet of Collaborations and One Size Won’t Fit All. Fillip Studios is represented in two of these subthemes:

Meetup Art in Healthcare

By supplementing medicine and care, the arts can improve the health of people who experience mental or physical health problems. Engaging in the arts can promote prevention of disease and build wellbeing.

In response to the growing awareness of the value of the arts in the healthcare environment, supported by a growing body of scientific research, hospitals throughout the Western world are expanding their collections of artworks, organizing events with music, and creative therapies. By supplementing medicine and care, the arts can improve the health of people who experience mental or physical health problems.In this meetup we dive into the world of Art in Healthcare: what are the benefits of applying art in healthcare? What are the potentials?

Kim Erkens is the founder of Vergeet-mij-liedje. In cooperation with Company New Heroes and Alzheimer Nederland, she made over 50 musical video-portraits of people with dementia. The portraits are published online as well as in physical exhibitions. With this project, she wants to break shame and let us see how inspiring, funny and special people with dementia are. In her presentation she will give insights about her way of work and some tips and tricks to do it yourself. She will also explain why music has such a strong effect on people with dementia.

Tom Kortbeek and Roos Meerman of Fillip Studios developed KozieMe: a pillow that makes music by touch, developed for people with Dementia. The user can listen to his or her favourite music, audiobooks or recorded stories from family members. The idea of the KozieMe derived from the art piece Tactile Orchestra, that has been exhibited in Cooper Hewitt Design Museum in New York and is shown in Kolding in Denmark at the moment. Roos will talk about how this art piece became a product for health care.
