Dutch Design Week 2011
Text: Detail Daily
From industrial design over spatial design, to design management and trends – a great variety of new design is on display at the tenth annual Dutch Design Week.
More than 1,500 designers show their work at the Dutch Design Week 2011 in Eindhoven, Netherlands, until October 30,2011.
With the event aiming to display “design in all its disciplines and aspects” this year’s participants include established bureaus, high-profile designers, newcomers, and recently graduated designers.
On display at Artifort is for example the sofa Reflex designed by Toine van den Heuvel: A 100% recyclable couch that is extremely flexible due to the frame, seating elements, table and armrest being constructed as separate components and fitted together via die-cast corners to provide endless variations.
Another part of the Dutch Design Week focuses on the Art Houses Projects: Several “unique artistic design houses” designed by artists are displayed to show products at the interface of art and design- “Live in art! Experience art!”
The company Concept 74 presents Trolley, a portable lighting instrument for outdoor and indoor use. It is composed of a sturdy frame resting on two rough-profiled rubber tires. The frame is fitted with a handle to make it easy to move the light.
The Dutch Design Week 2011 takes place from October 22 through October 30 2011 in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
