Scroll to explore Members of Het Nieuwe Instituut

Become a Member of Het Nieuwe Instituut and you’ll support our mission to navigate the vast and evolving field of design. You’ll also be inspired by our special program of Members’ events, meeting up with other like-minded people as we invite you to reflect with us on design’s changing role in technology, economics, culture and society.


With a Studio Membership, your whole organization can benefit. You’ll enjoy regular opportunities to step outside the daily work routine, in addition to free access to events and exhibitions. Taking part in one of our Thursday Night Live events, for example, is a way to recharge working relationships, get in touch with other professionals, encounter cutting-edge ideas and refresh your perspectives on design.

Some of the events where Members can meet:

  • In spring: Member event during the Venice Architecture Biennale
  • In summer: Exclusive cocktail party during Thursday Night Live!
  • In winter: Member design workshop
  • All year: Thursday Night Live! Members’ dinner table
