How do two of the new generation’s most passionate designers, Nienke Hoogvliet (1989) and Dave Hakkens (1988), use design to tackle the world’s biggest problems?

Synopsis:

Nienke Hoogvliet (1989) and Dave Hakkens (1988) represent a new generation of contemporary Dutch Designers. This generation is acutely aware that raw materials are depleting, energy is scarce, and globalisation is driving new forms of small-scale production. As makers, they don’t care about existing
boundaries between art, design and science.

In a WORLD to SHAPE, director Ton van Zantvoort guides you through the respective ingenuity of Nienke and Dave. Though they think differently, they are set on improving the world in their own inimitable ways. Nienke’s mission is to make the world’s second most polluting industry – the clothing industry – more
sustainable. She is currently working on sustainable applications of seaweed, such as using it to make paint.

Dave’s ambition is equally ambitious. His Kamp project attempts to establish a living and working community that uses a minimal carbon footprint. He is building this community in Portugal, where he has bought nine hectares of land. He has created a blueprint for a new society and made it open source
so that anyone can adopt and improve it, and the system can be used worldwide.

Where many people might see problems, Nienke and Dave envisage solutions. But how realistic are their ambitions? To find out, we join Dave and Nienke on their audacious quests.
