During Dutch Design Week, Fillip Studios was invited to join CreativeNL’s panel talk with focal point USA

Following our travels to the United States of America with Arabidopsis Symphony, Fillip Studios was invited by CreativeNL to join one of their panel talks that took place during Dutch Design Week 2022. This specific event on October 25th was focused on making impact and doing business in the USA as a creative company. Since our colleague Lotte Holterman had represented us at Atlanta Design Festival (Atlanta) and the Sustainable Urban Design Summit (Detroit), she once again joined the conversation on behalf of Fillip Studios.

With moderator Rob Adams, Lotte discussed Arabidopsis Symphony and her experiences with taking the project to Atlanta and Detroit in the USA. As we’ve come to expect from Rob, he dived deeper into Fillip Studios’ mission to make ‘impact through wonder’, asking Lotte: “do you think wondering is something people should do more?”. The answer was obviously yes.

Subjects that were discussed with other participants included the Dutch input (in the field of architecture, mobility, and sustainability) in a city like Detroit and the success of Dutch Digital Design in the USA.

Valuable connections

At CreativeNL’s event, Lotte reunited with some of the wonderful people she met at SUDS in Detroit: moderator Rob Adams (Six Fingers, Embassy of Mobility), Andrea van der Grinten (Consulate General of the Netherlands in Chicago), and Ivana Kalafatic (Detroitisit and initiator of SUDS — online). The networking event also gave her the opportunity to connect with other speakers, such as Alex Rodríguez (MVRDV), Bert Hagendoorn (Dutch Digital Design), and Danny Frietman (New Dutch Wave). Vera Kuipers of CreativeNL hosted the afternoon event.
