CrowdyHouse is a groundbreaking new platform combining crowdfunding with retail. It enables designers to receive funding to self-produce their designs. In return funders get a unique piece of design for a fair price. Crowdyhouse.com/enCrowdyHouse.com officially launches at Dutch Design Week, October 21

The site aims to bring more opportunities to designers and stimulate the creation of new design. Many good designers struggle to realize their designs due to a lack of funding and/or find the royalties system unfair.

CrowdyHouse is a solution for both. As a design enthusiast you are in direct contact with the designer from the start, contrary to how you buy design in a shop.

This new platform comes at a time when the design industry is expanding and diversifying, but many of the traditional funding sources for designers are drying up. The Dutch government has significantly cut their creative industry grants for the unforeseeable future.

And banks rarely give loans to young design entrepreneurs. ‘CrowdyHouse can be an ice breaker to the industry, a medium that fills the space between the good idea and the design enthusiast, “says Mark Studholme, along with Suzan Claesen initiator of the site.
