EDTI: European Design Training Incubator

The European Design Training Incubator (EDTI) is a new 24-month (Jan 08 - Dec 09) EU network project within the Leonardo da Vinci programme. EDTI covers the whole range of learning focused on professional practice in design.

By benchmarking design education and training in the context of the lifelong learning, the core idea behind EDTI is to establish a common European platform where design-related organisations can audit existing training provision, identify needs and share and coordinate training development and its implementation.

multiple choice: sculptural scarfs

multiple choice is a project-based retail venture.

Each project takes on a different form depending on its concept, which can be anything from a place or a function, to a colour or even a texture. In may 2008, multiple choice debuted its first project, "made in hk", which took the form of a month-long guerrilla store in nyc featuring clothing, accessories, and objects by hong kong-based independent labels, with the objective of showing that their innovative designs are a vibrant counterpoint to the negative stereotypes conventionally associated with the "made in hk" label.

(1) thing, the online shop of multiple choice, currently features a collection of brand new sculptural scarfs.
