Looking back at Dutch Design Week 2019

07 november 2019

Dutch Design Week took place in Eindhoven from 19 to 27 October 2019. The Fund was present at several locations. We presented new talent during 'The Scene is Here' in MU. In 'Chronic Health, It's only human?' at the Embassy of Health, eight designers supported by the Fund, among others, demonstrated the importance of design for healthcare, now and in the future. Together with Vereniging Deltametropool, we presented the plea for the spatial quality of our future living environment: GO!RES. And with the programme 'This is a Take-Over: Researching Remix', Metro54 focused attention on design, digital culture, reflection and research within urban arts & culture.
