Come on a tour through the carnival of design that is Strijp-S.
Most of the exhibits and events during Dutch Design Week took place in one of a few regions in the city of Eindhoven. Strijp-S was one of the biggest. It used to be a huge industrial park operated by Phillips, but now it is used most of the year by art and design related organizations. During Dutch Design Week it becomes a carnival of design. It’s like Disney World for design fanatics.
Be sure to also take a look at Dutch Design Week – Part 1.
There were so many wonderful projects on display, I had a hard time choosing what to share. Look through many, many more pictures after the jump!

Ah, lasercutting, how I love you.
The Shapeways booth was easily one of the most popular exhibits at Strijp-S. They selected a variety of the best products from their site to show, and the audience loved playing with them.
It’s a designer toy gun. What more do I need to say?
It’s like sitting on a spring. This stool is way more fun than yours. I guarantee it.
These projects show a couple clever ways to use layers of cut felt to create volume.
