Elephants, Tattoos, and a Horse head

Posted:  November 26th 2014



On Tuesday December 2, Renny Ramakers will give a talk at the business conference ‘Exploring Dutch-Maltese Business Opportunities in Innovative Technologies, Design and Creative Industry’ in Malta. At the conference she will explain the way how Droog is creative with and without the use of new technology.

In her talk she will show that innovation can be achieved by looking at things from a different perspective. Droog’s alternative ways of thinking and new design mentalities will be demonstrated by presenting its latest design projects. One of these projects is Solar, in which designers of DeMakersVan and Studio Molen have been connected to the daily reality of science, research and industry. Together they have been investigating how solar panels could be more than just efficient tools.

The conference is organized by the Netherlands Embassy in Malta in cooperation with Malta Enterprise, the Ministry for the Economy, Investment & Small Business, the Netherlands Research Institute TNO, the University of Malta and the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry.

December 2, 2014. Location: Malta Enterprise.
