MTIC DESIGN PROJECT
The MTic-design knowledge exchange program seeks to create professional design knowledge for the Netherlands and Latin America by developing innovative products and knowledge together.
Dutch designers will team up in duos with designers from Colombia and Guatemala. Each duo will design an interior product in a long-distance collaboration. The product will result from the fusion of the different methodologies, approaches and aesthetics based on their (design)
culture and personal style. Each duo will work with one of three themes, respectively aiming at societal utility, cultural awareness, and consumer attractiveness.

We Love Public Space Festival
With the ‘We Love Public Space’ Festival (WLPS) we celebrate public space and pay tribute to everyone who is professionally involved in city making. The aim of the Festival is to establish an open conversation about how city makers deal with present and future developments that determine the design and use of public space.
The WLPS Festival is broad-orientated and freely accessible. An open and dynamic platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience between city makers; from architect to artist, from designer to urban planner.
The interdisciplinary team behind the WLPS festival consist of Bas Sala (designer, Studio Bas Sala), Floor van Ditzhuyzen (architect, de Ontwerpwerkplaats) and Ron Blom (artist, Ron Blom art and media). We share a fascination for public space; we love public space. Team WLPS is representative for the various disciplines and divers views, approaches and strategies that are
featured at the Festival; for city makers, by city makers.
The Yellow Building
Studio Bas Sala is one of the five parties who initiated the redevelopment of the Yellow building, located in the ZoHo area in Rotterdam. Together with Stipo, SPIN city developers, Van Schagen architects, KCR and the owner, we co-developed a concept for this former office building. Step by step, we and our fellow tenants transform the building into an ideal surrounding and working environment for co-creation. with the goal to create a place that has a strong sense of communication and collaboration.
