Location: Eindhoven, the Netherlands

ICSE is a Not-for-profit organization based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The cooperative project organization values sharing knowledge, facilities and resources as important tools that lead to larger potential for innovation, flexibility and risk management.
Totems was commissioned to realize the new ICSE Center in Eindhoven. The historic "Light Tower", the former lighting factory of Philips, a monumental building with industrial appearance was an impressively strong base for the center and its interior. The center gives professionals, enterprising citizens and clients the possibility to intensify cooperative entrepreneurship concerning sustainability and innovation in the fields of energy, health & care and materials.
During the process of development and construction, Totems was responsible for the new concept and the Master plan, including interior design, the exhibition concept and its implementation. The implementation plan was realized in form of an implementation handbook for participants, the detailed design, the budget control and the supervision of the implementation.
