Visit the Out of the Lab exhibition at Cube Design Museum. Over 20 design student projects are shown, among which the proud results of our MAMDT minor programme Intervention Design.



Design for human needs and ambitions

Cube design museum shows design that has impact. Design for human needs and ambitions takes up a central position among the temporary exhibitions of (inter)national design and is part of an additional programme featuring workshops and lectures to broaden the subject. Furthermore, the Cube design labs on floor 0 provide insights in the design process.

They provide room for experiments and creativity. It is also the space for a close look at the design process, from initial needs to final realisation. To make an impact on society, however, concepts must get beyond the lab. The Out of the Lab exhibition displays the design process and its outcomes.

Out of the Lab shows 21 projects that resulted from the Cube in-residence programme. This programme offers students an opportunity to work on designs as part of an internship, a minor programme or a graduation project. In the labs, museum visitors are challenged to participate in the thinking and design processes. Co-creation is what de Cube design labs are all about.

 The exhibition shows concepts, ideas and prototypes as answers to various social issues, ranging from waste of food to the care for dementia patients. Four beginning entrepreneurs, who have already ‘taken the step outside’ with the help of Brightlands Innovation Factory, also take part in the exhibition. Brightlands Innovation Factory – a partner of Cube – supports start-ups to become successful businesses and thus offers opportunities for a follow-up of the Cube in-residence programme.
