New year for design
For the past two decades, Dutch Design Week has stood as a beacon of innovation, focusing on the design of the future and the future of design. This annual festival is a testament to Dutch creativity and ingenuity, showcasing the works of visionary designers from around the world who are shaping a brighter tomorrow. From October 21st-29th, Dutch Design Week 2023 promises to captivate audiences once again with its celebration of design-driven solutions that have the potential to reshape society for years and even decades to come.
Future oriented design
In 2023, Dutch Design Week introduces ten program narratives that serve as a compass, guiding visitors through the labyrinth of creativity on display. These narratives help match the participating designers with curious minds eager to explore the cutting edge of design. Importantly, they are founded on missions and design perspectives that reflect the most pressing concerns of our times, including the climate crisis and social inequality.
Central to this vision is the commitment of designers, who possess the remarkable ability to visualise alternative futures. Miriam van der Lubbe, Creative Head of Dutch Design Week, emphasised the role of designers in breaking through the inertia that often accompanies discussions of societal change. Through their creative prowess, they can translate complex ideas into aesthetically captivating designs that inspire action.
Dutch Design Week 2023 epitomises the #NewDutch spirit by putting innovation and design at the forefront.
