“We are thrilled and honoured to have designed the exhibition ‘RAF: First to the Future’ and collaborate with such a renowned institute as the RAF”, says Mark de Jong, founder and creative director of Kossmanndejong. “As the future is subject of debate, our aim was to activate the visitor to join this discussion and to develop a vision of the future. We have turned the exhibition space into a laboratory-like environment and challenge visitors to take on the role of researcher.”
