5X5 / DESIGNREGIO KORTRIJK / Belgium
5 companies / 5 designer duos / 5 new products
5 companies / 5 designer duos/ 5 new products Designregio Kortrijk developed the unique 5X5 concept that had already three successful editions. 5 companies in the region Kortrijk have the unique opportunity to work for one year together with both a junior and a senior designer. The company and the designers follow a fixed 5X5 methodology to create a new product together. The various aspects of product development are highlighted and activated in the program. Designregio Kortrijk covers substantially the design cost and supports the entire process from initial idea to a product that is ready to be commercialized. The prototypes and concepts of ongoing collaborations are shown on Interieur'14. This edition we work again with 5 ambitious companies and designer duos. The current teams are NOVY, David Pas/Orlando Thuysbaert; COPAHOME, David Dos Santos/Mathieur Bellens and Olivier Caluwier; DOMOTIC-LOUNGE, Pieter lessage/Matthijs Stichelbaut; VIKA, Jean Fancois Do’r/Frédérique Ficheroulle and EURAQUA, Johan Bonner/Wendy De Moor.
