What if Lab

What if Lab challenges the business community and design world to come up with specific answers to current issues.

How does it work?

What if Lab links relevant clients to talented designers so that they can work together to find solutions to challenging design questions. The What if Lab trajectory is supervised by Lab Managers from Dutch Design Foundation. Register as a client and create a challenge, or participate as a designer in one of the open challenges.
