The Laboratory for Design and Sustainability
Design School Kolding's unique competences in education, research and development within the field of design not only benefit the students but society as a whole.
The school is keen for industry, the public systems and others to experience the creative and innovative potential offered by a collaboration between a designer and a company.
Two laboratories – one development department
Design School Kolding has therefore created a tradition of working with local, regional, national and international companies, institutions and organisations. Two laboratories in one development department consolidate the school's collaborations. Here, a team of professional designers works on how design and design methods can make a difference to the world.

Sustainability as a growth stimulator
The Laboratory for Design and Sustainability examines, shows and works with how sustainability can be a stimulator of growth and change. We look at how materials, products, services and systems can be put together so that they make sense in relation to the "triple bottom line", i.e. the balance between economic profitability, environmental sustainability and social justice.
Focus on practice
Design School Kolding rests on a three-pronged knowledge base: Research, artistic development and practice. The school works on the principle that "doing is thinking"; through specific collaborations and artistic development projects, the Laboratories generate knowledge and examples of how design contributes to the development and implementation of meaningful products, services and systems.
