Sense of care

Visit the Philips Museum during Dutch Design Week 2023

Discover how top Philips designers are transforming healthcare with sound, images and experiences in the temporary exhibition: Sense(s) of care

Sense(s) of care: exhibition that stimulates the senses

The exhibition 'Sense(s) of care' is exclusively on show during Dutch Design Week at the Philips Museum. Philips designers show how sound, images and experiences are transforming healthcare. After all, healthcare is full of devices you can touch, hear and see; all these systems and procedures work together to give patients the best possible treatment.

What to see

The exhibition Sense(s) of Care shows how sound can play a role in patient recovery. In addition, you'll see how a surgeon sees and achieves a heart without invasive procedures. Furthermore, you will discover how personalized care can make a patient feel better and how we are shaping the future of Philips products as optimally as possible; always with people's needs in mind.

Listen, see, experience and learn

The temporary exhibition at the Philips Museum showcases four award-winning projects by Philips designers. This year, these projects were rewarded with prestigious international awards, such as the Red Dot Design Awards, IF Design Awards and UX Design Awards.
