Merkwaardig onderzoek en ontwerp van de streek

Remarkable Regional Research and Design

We are a collective of researchers, designers, teachers and artists with a passion for heritage, history, education, art and design.

First, this is a reference to the typical and now long gone rooms in farmhouses which were called the 'moos'.

Second, we see it as an acronym that stands for 'Merkwaardig Onderzoek en Ontwerp van de Streek', a phrase that can be translated as 'Remarkable Research and Design of the (Kempen) Region'.

Our aim is to investigate regional historical phenomena and to translate the results of this research into the design of contemporary artifacts that answer current needs and expectations.
