Debate and reflection during Dutch Design Week

DDW2016The 15th edition of Dutch Design Week (DDW) starts Saturday. Guests of honour for the anniversary edition are 2500 national and international designers who make the world that little bit better, smarter, handier and more beautiful. From 22 to 30 October they will be showing their latest work and the best design has to offer, in Eindhoven. 

All aspects of design
All aspects of design will be addressed during Dutch Design Week (DDW). Public, press and commerce will get an exclusive peek behind the scenes and will see future in the making with their very own eyes. Apart from several hundred exhibitions and presentations, the event will offer sufficient opportunity for reflection and debate with lectures, meetings and seminars. There is also time for relaxation – for example during one of the award presentations, networking events or (live) music shows.

Extensive programme
The selection below merely gives an impression of the extensive programme that will unroll for nine days on 100 locations throughout the city. Check the full line-up and all events on the DDW website, www.ddw.nl.
