Designing Scarcity

Posted Sept. 2, 2014 by Theun Karelse

Het Nieuwe Instituut hosted a show on scarcity as an agent for design innovation. FoAM was invited to exhibit the free and open source smartphone foraging app Boskoi. Alongside contemporary work by designers such as Atelier Van Lieshout and Formafantasma, the exhibition features historical designs by the likes of architects Gerrit Rietveld, J.J.P. Oud, and Van den Broek en Bakema. Master’s students from the Design Academy Eindhoven have contributed contemporary proposals that respond to the idea of scarcity, taking inspiration from objects in Het Nieuwe Instituut’s archive.
