Who are we?

What do we have to offer?
Internships in Cube design labs: co-creation & design thinking.
Cube design museum offers students, young designers and alumni the possibility to work in the Cube design labs. Student scan join us within the framework of an internship, a minor or graduation project. This allows young designers to add to their skills and to deepen their knowledge. Ideally, the multidisciplinary teams are made up of students from different disciplines, faculties and nationalities, of experts from relevant disciplines and end-users.
The team apply the principles of design thinking, co-creation and co-design. They find solutions for issues or challenges, together with visitors, scientists, stakeholders and end-users. The starting point will be “Design for human needs and ambitions”. The teams will complete the design process from initial problem definition until end-product. They will come up with new products, concepts or services.
Cube Calls 2019
Each team works on its own design project, the Cube Call. This call is to be completed within a period ranging from a number of weeks to some months. It will tie in with the criteria formulated by the members’ training institutions and the Cube design museum will provide expert support as to design thinking and design. The results will be permanently showed in Cube’s museum collection, physically or digitally. In other words, the design processes and their final outcomes will remain visible for the museum’s visitors.
