Here, There, Everywhere

Edited by Renny Ramakers and Agata Jaworska
With essays, conversations and talks by David Allin, Jurgen Bey, Koert Debeuf, Theo Deutinger, Greg Lindsay, Winy Maas, Justin McGuirk, Heleen Mees, Renny Ramakers, Charles Renfro, Wouter Vanstiphout and Daniel van der Velden.
The world is intertwined. What happens here, might be relevant there and could resonate everywhere. Initiated by cofounder and director of design company Droog, Renny Ramakers, Droog Lab scans the world for relevant topics and patterns, seeking the broader design relevance of local findings.
Here, There, Everywhere explores the value of dead stock, of downloadable design, of copying as a design method, of a self-invented service mentality typical of Manhattan, of the lack of an explicit national identity inherent to Belgium, of the Russian love for bling, of an alternative economy where materials become more expensive, and more.
From the future of nomadic living to imaginary brands, economic zones and societies, this book is a snapshot of realistic and imaginative findings by Droog Lab in collaboration with designers, architects and thinkers including Winy Maas, Metahaven, Jurgen Bey, Richard Hutten, Theo Deutinger, Mieke Gerritzen, Erik Kessels, Bas Princen, Diller Scofidio + Renfro and others.
