On 23 October 2015, the Cube Design Museum in Kerkrade opened as part of the Museumplein Limburg. Next to the design museum are the Columbus Earth Theatre (an inverted planetarium with 360 degrees projection) and the renovated Continium Discovery Center. Under the name C-City, these developments should attract a combined 200,000 visitors annually.
What is design?
DST designed the Cube Design Labs for the Cube Design Museum. On the first floor, we developed a mindset exhibition (‘What is design?’). On the upper floors, visitors are taken through the design process using the themes of Ask, Imagine and Create. In the labs work design students-in-residence talk with visitors to bring about co-creation.
Design is a process
When mentioning the word ‘design’, most people think of design products. But in the Cube Design Labs is it all about the design process. ‘Design is a process’, is the summary of our vision.
