CrowdyHouse: a new and innovative crowdfunding platform for design launches at Dutch Design Week 2013

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

CrowdyHouse

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 2013-10-16 -  On the 21st of October meet the 18 designers launching with the platform and see their products. Designers such as: Floris Wubben, Marc de Groot and Lizan Freijsen from 16:00 will be available for interviews as well as the CrowdyHouse initiators. Located at the stunning Inkijkmuseum, 5 minutes from Eindhoven station.

About CrowdyHouse

CrowdyHouse is a groundbreaking new platform combining crowdfunding with retail. It enables designers to receive funding to self-produce their designs. In return funders get a unique piece of design for a fair price. Crowdyhouse.com/en CrowdyHouse.com officially launches at Dutch Design Week, October 21.

The site aims to bring more opportunities to designers and stimulate the creation of new design. Many good designers struggle to realize their designs due to a lack of funding and/or find the royalties system unfair. CrowdyHouse is a solution for both. As a design enthusiast you are in direct contact with the designer from the start, contrary to how you buy design in a shop.

Marc de Groot, Floris Wubben, Renate Fos and Vilt aan Zee: are just a sample of the 18 designers using CrowdyHouse to put their designs into production.

This new platform comes at a time when the design industry is expanding and diversifying, but many of the traditional funding sources for designers are drying up. The Dutch government has significantly cut their creative industry grants for the unforeseeable future. And banks rarely give loans to young design entrepreneurs. 'CrowdyHouse can be an ice breaker to the industry, a medium that fills the space between the good idea and the design enthusiast, "says Mark Studholme, along with Suzan Claesen initiator of the site.

Notes for editors:

The Inkijkmuseum: Inkijkmuseum, Dommelstraat 2a, Eindhoven

The official launch is from the 21st of October, including designers such as Marc de Groot, Studio Floris Wubben, Ridder en Clown, Vilt aan Zee, Lizan Freijsen, LedObject, Studio Nic Roex and Tim Vinke, Siebring and Zoetmulder.
