Pioneers of Industrial Culture by Premsela, Dutch Platform for Design and Fashion


Premsela celebrates the pioneering designers, industrial experts and cultural entrepreneurs who shape and drive forward a new industrial culture. In this series of interviews, we zoom in on how these pioneers bridge the seemingly divided worlds of culture and industry; and investigate the role of education, production, craftsmanship, globalisation, identity, art, politics, radicalism, and many more things in their daily practice.
