We are the current 2020-21 Designers in Residence
invited by Designregio Kortrijk.

We created ‘Eiland Eiland Eiland’ 
as a response to ‘The Future of Urban Leisure’,
that is the theme for this year residency. 

We believe that the Future of Urban Leisure
is decentralised, community-empowering
and paradisiac !
