Overtreders W is developing further skills in social and circular design, building and designing for the real world, and experimenting for a sustainable future. For the programme Dissident Gardens Overtreders W designed the installation Power to the Wild on the resilience of wild plants as the background for the workshop Explore the Everyday. Overtreders W and the participants will research plastic packaging and explore new applications for this everyday material.

Overtreders W is a spatial design agency that was founded in 2006 by Reinder Bakker and Hester van Dijk. They both graduated from The Design Academy in Eindhoven and have been working since 2011 from Amsterdam. Their designs include exhibitions, restaurants and visitors centres, as well as several unusual projects such as a wool factory, an entrance gate for the biggest market in Amsterdam, a coffee bar made of market square materials, and a picnic pavilion with an inflatable illuminated roof.
