Designers and employment enterprises make it together.
From 30 October to 30 November, we present the second collection of Volmaakt in the DING Vitrine. The Ghent design label connects designers and local integrated employment enterprises, and develops socially sustainable design products.
By connecting the social economy with the mainstream economy, more creative makers, individuals and companies should find their way to the employment enterprises and offer opportunities to vulnerable target groups.
The collaboration between designer and social manufacturing company is a win-win situation. Employment enterprises can develop further in the field of (product) innovation and marketing and give their employees meaningful and sustainable work. Designers can market their creations and explore collaborations with companies with a social purpose. The result of this collaboration is more than the sum of its parts. A perfection that is not so much reflected in the perfection of the objects but in a perfect collaboration between the makers.
