Open Set provides a high-quality program, including symposiums and workshops that identifies the latest developments in design, emphasizes its relations with the urgent social and political debates, and also promotes cooperation with other cultural disciplines and sectors.

Open Set was initiated 4 years ago and since then has been situated in the Netherlands. In 2016, with the gathered effort of international partners, the first edition of Open Set abroad will take place in Seoul, South Korea, 15—27 February 2016.

This program will be the first of the two events of 2016, continuing in summer with the already established edition in Rotterdam. Each of the programs introduces a unique set of tutors and speakers, while still remaining connected by the annual theme of research. Open Set Dutch Design Seoul Sessions are supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL, Royal Netherlands Embassy at Seoul, Kookmin University, CA Korea magazine and The Book Society in Seoul.
