My Thing Your thing in the Van Abbe during Dutch Design Week?

28/07/2015 - 01/10/2015

Design Academy Eindhoven & Van Abbemuseum

Just like almost everyone you probably have a thing that you are attached to and that you would never want to lose. It’s not necessarily worth a lot of money, but it has a certain emotional or inspirational value for you.  The Van Abbemuseum and Design Academy Eindhoven are in search of the objects that the people of Eindhoven value – and especially the accompanying story. We invite the city into the museum during Dutch Design Week ; we reserve a gallery called "My Thing" - for these objects. They will be shown next to works by various (inter)national designers and artist in the exhibition Thing Nothing which opens on 17 October 2015. This is the third part of the successful and highly appreciated trilogy of the cooperation between Design Academy and Van Abbemuseum.
