After a fully online edition in 2020, Dutch Design Week is back with a live podium for the festival in 2021 between the 16th and 24th of October in Eindhoven. Dutch Design Week is a large-scale and international nine-day event that takes place every year. Spread over the city in large unique locations and smaller locations in the center, about 2500 designers showcase their modern art.
DDW21 ’The Greater Number’
The theme of 2021 is ‘The Greater Number’, the quest for the better number. With this theme, the DDW wants to call the designers ‘less’ is more. Less consumption, less production, and therefore less waste. On the one hand, we know that this is not always possible. So when it comes to ‘more’, then it should be better and increase the value of the products for the consumer.
Discover the unique locations & creative design
The result of the artists can be admired in different locations in the city. For example, plan a VIP tour in the Melkfabriek about Art-tech and manifestations or discover how nature and technology become one by WEAR – Wearables of the futre in the Trudo Tower on Strijp-S.
Dutch Design Award
The most distinctive designs have a chance of winning the Dutch Design Award. These are the designs that are most unique in multiple disciplines. The winner will be chosen based on the design that is most relevant, that has an impact on the targeted field in combination with the approach and form of the concept.
The different categories in which prizes fall vary from Fashion to Young Designer. Check out all the categories and requirements on the website of Dutch Design Awards.
