The graduating students from the Design Academy Eindhoven presented their final projects in their Graduation Show 2021. This year's graduating class presented a range of projects in both a physical and online show that dealt with a range of issues from gender expression to global warming and cleaning. 


Barbora Středová's Tribute to Cleaning celebrates cleaners and cleaning tools through the creation of a spatial installation that shines a light on the importance of cleaning in our daily lives.  “It is my way of honouring all the cleaners who are giving their care, time and efforts into making sure that everyone around feels good,” Barbora says.





1kg of Textile by Alice Watel is a project inspired by guidance that in order to slow the rate of global warming, consumers should buy no more than 1kg of textiles per year. Watel uses Instagram and a printed book to show examples of how people can reduce their consumption of textiles and gives tips on how to continue this habit in the future. “My goal is to give people a toolset to change their behaviour and create a community of consumers who help each other to follow the slow fashion movement,” Alice writes.





Clodagh Read's The House of Queer Joy is a tactile tent that celebrates queer culture and queer people's need for their own safe spaces and community. The walls of the tent feature a patchwork of personal quotes about the meaning of queer space. It's vibrant colours represent the different aspects of the queer community from club culture to kink and activism. Read's other project, titled New Labels. is a range of clothing for young children with adaptable velcro add-ons that empower them to express their identity in a way that doesn't fall into the typical binaries.










Ruben Warnshuis Ruben Warnshuis



Ruben Warnshuis aims to address what they perceive to be a tokenistic approach to sustainable footwear design by big brands by creating shoes using sustainable techniques. Industrial Devolution: Footwear features a range of woven shoes from rope soles, wooden soles, jute, sisal, nylon or polypropylene. Each variation can be adapted to meet different footwear requirements.

Nancy Green/ Matthieu Henry Nancy Green/ Matthieu Henry


Nancy Green's  Body Grafts – Skinned Furniture project sees the designer uses her own body to create furniture patterns. Using a technique typically used in shoe making, Green marks out her body and reveals the patterns and contours of the human form through the eyes of a furniture maker. Matthieu Henry's Human Mould similarly looks at human anatomy and it's connection to construction and furniture. Henry makes a mould of the human body and hollows it out, using the outlines of the body to create chairs that resemble the human form in states of repose.




Solene Bonnet Sarah Roseman Solene Bonnet / Sarah Roseman





Solène Bonnet's project, Shifting Realms, takes digital imagery and translates them into physical objects. An augmented reality Instagram face filter is applied to a mirror which reflects back a glossy and misshapen version of the viewer. A digital heatmap is turned into a soft and saturated wool textile piece. Sarah Roseman's Molten Memories is a floor-based textile project that encourages the viewer to come to ground level and experience it from a toddler's perspective. The project seeks to awaken a sense of nostalgia in the viewer and remind them of how everyday household objects were perceived when they were in their early years.






Ninon-Oudin-Michelle-Se-Yoon-Kee Ninon Oudin/ Michelle Se Yoon Kee





Ikealogy  by Ninon Oudin  imagines what future civilisations will make of the ubiquitous blue Ikea bags of the 21st century. Using augmented reality, Oudin lets viewers see the weird interpretations of the Ikea bags by future anthropologists. Michelle Se Yoon Kee's Pocketsurvivor is an online service and app that pairs patients suffering from a gynecological illness with people who have been through something similar, allowing them to receive peer-to-peer support. The service aims to reduce the feelings of isolation people with gynecological conditions may have and support them in communicating openly without fear of judgement.
