Design Academy Eindhoven

Jan Boelen is former head of the Master department Social Design at Design Academy Eindhoven in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.


The research programme of Social Design at Design Academy Eindhoven develops new models, strategies and products that can play a decisive role in the development and transformation of society. The economical, governmental and democratic systems are in crisis. Powers are shifting and we have to develop new relations and values between people, people as consumers, producers and distributors. We will respond to these changes and formulate scenarios, models and products that will be embedded and tested within the context for which they are intended.

Through the act of creating, making and testing we will reflect upon your interests and fascinations, and these will direct your design. We expect a self-critical, reflective and constructive attitude of our designers towards the world in flux.
