departure/MAK d>link.04In d>link.04 British designer Samuel Wilkinson and Tim Vermeulen, program director of the Premsela Foundation, the Netherlands
Institute for Design and Fashion, will discuss how and why their work is influenced by current debates on social and ecological
values, as well as the role played by business-relevant policy decisionssuch as the ban on traditional light bulbs.
The talk will cover topics ranging from the search for a new kind of energy-efficient beauty to the views of Slow Design or
the Slow Movement in general, ultimately homing in on questions of trust between producers and consumers. Their
dialog will also serve to highlight the new challenges that these developments entail for collaboration between promoters,
producers, and design studios.Tim Vermeulen is program manager of Designworld at Premsela, the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion, Amsterdam. In 2004, Vermeulen
started the Utrecht Manifest, Biennial for Social Design with Dutch furniture brand Pastoe and Centraal Museum Utrecht. premsela.orgSamuel Wilkinson is a London based industrial designer, who most recently won international acclaim for projects like the energy-saving bulb Plumen 001, a collaborative design work with design brand Hulger.
