Dutch De­sign Week

Timeless Travels Magazine - - THE NETHERLANDS -

In Oc­to­ber of each year, Dutch De­sign Week (DDW) takes place in Eind­hoven. The big­gest de­sign event in North­ern Europe presents work and ideas of more than 2,500 de­sign­ers to more than 295,000 vis­i­tors from home and abroad. In more than 100 lo­ca­tions across the city, DDW or­gan­ises and fa­cil­i­tates ex­hi­bi­tions, lec­tures, prize cer­e­monies, net­work­ing events, de­bates and fes­tiv­i­ties.

DDW is dif­fer­ent from other de­sign events, be­cause it con­cen­trates on the de­signs of the fu­ture. Although dur­ing the event ev­ery imag­in­able dis­ci­pline and as­pect of de­sign is on of­fer, the em­pha­sis is on ex­per­i­ment, in­no­va­tion and cross-overs.

The event started in 1998 as a way of in­tro­duc­ing de­sign­ers to en­trepreneurs. The event, which took place an­nu­ally in Eind­hoven, at­tracted more in­ter­est each year and grew ex­po­nen­tially. The Day of De­sign be­came the Week of De­sign in 2002 and ul­ti­mately in 2005 it was re­named Dutch De­sign Week. DDW in 2017 will run from 21 - 29 Oc­to­ber 2017.
