Exhibition 2016

August 24 2016


The exhibition with the best design of 2016 will be on show from 22-30 October during Dutch Design Week.

During the exhibition, you can purchase the Dutch Design Today publication. More information here


Each year, the works of all finalists are on display in the retrospective exhibition of DDA during Dutch Design Week. The exhibition with the best design of 2016 takes place on Strijp-S, once again at the characteristic Veemgebouw. Glamcult Studio was inspired by classical show elements. The result: a spectacle of light and shadow highlighting the strengths of each individual finalist. The nominees’ projects will be shown, but attention will also be paid to the design process.
