In the next edition of the Dutch Design Week it will be celebrating 19 years since the birth of the fair, which has become the most important in Northern Europe: a local event of global impact with the participation of more than 2,500 designers and almost 300 thousand national and international visitors.
The theme of 2017 is Stretch, set by the Dutch Design Foundation to stimulate new perspectives beyond the comfort zone. Made to inspire and provoke, the design is, in the words of Foundation director, Martijn Paulen, brain-yoga: “Dutch design is yoga for the brain. Stretching exercises for people who don’t want to get stuck in their ways.”
Bio design, Sustainable design, Circular design, Spatial design, Food design, Service design, Social design and various other disciplines will be presented, discussed and experienced during the DDW2017.
