The Up Close & Personal exhibition is organised by Design United, the 4TU research centre of design, with representatives who work at the universities of technology in the Netherlands: University of Twente, TU Delft, Wagingen University and Eindhoven University of Technology. In Up Close & Personal 2021, we communicate state-of-the-art design research to illustrate, reflect and criticise the role of design in society. Participating projects will give meaning to the following five themes:
You are cordially invited to visit our physical Up Close & Personal exhibition where 13 top design research projects of the four Dutch technical universities are presented. You can find the physical exhibition inside the Klokgebouw.
View the online magazine to check out the top 35 projects by Design United researchers and students, to read the columns and to have your say via the polls.
Several participants of Up Close & Personal will be representing the University of Twente. Find them under each of the subthemes via the slideshow below where you can also see whether they will be present at the physical exhibition in Klokgebouw, as part of the eMagazine, and/or if they will take part in a livestreamed talkshow.
