Disarming Design from Palestine


Disarming Design from Palestine (DDfP) is an independent non-profit organisation that operates as a design label and learning platform. Our mission is to foster thought-provoking design from Palestine by developing and distributing useful products that share poetic and political statements. Often rooted in experiences from everyday life in occupied Palestine, the items serve as cultural artefacts that catalyse conversations.

With our project we invest in participative design methods that contribute to decolonial futures. We join forces with designers, initiatives and academia with whom we share common creative and political grounds, to explore further paths and knowledges. During create-shops in Palestine products are developed that are made by local artisans and self-producing designers. The items are shipped to our studio in Belgium from where we present and sell them beyond borders.”
