What kind of future would you like to design for?
Students can join us within the framework of an internship, a minor or graduation project. You work within a multidisciplinary team, with students from different disciplines and nationalities, supported by experts from relevant disciplines and with end-users. Actively engaging museum visitors in your design process through workshops, brainstorm sessions, activities and interactive exhibitions is part of your daily routine.
The teams apply principles of design thinking and co-creation. They find solutions for or new ways to deal with issues or challenges together with visitors, scientists, stakeholders and end-users. The starting point will be “design for human needs and human ambitions”. The teams will come up with new products, concepts or services on the basis of a request from society, industry, social organizations or specific interested parties.
Each team works on its own design project, the Cube Call. This call is to be completed within a period ranging from a number of weeks to some months. It will tie in with the criteria formulated by the members’ training institutions and the Cube design museum will provide expert support as to design thinking and design. The results will be permanently showed in Cube’s museum collection, physically or digitally. In other words, the design processes and their final outcomes will remain visible for the museum’s visitors.
