The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague is celebrating 60 years of its renowned postgraduate Industrial Design course this year. To mark the occasion, the Academy will exhibit examples of work from some of their former students and teachers.
As the oldest course of its kind in The Netherlands, the Industrial Design course at the Royal Academy has been affiliated with the likes of Gerrit Rietveld, Frans de La Haye and Kho Liang throughout the years. It therefore goes without saying that the course has produced some of the most iconic Dutch designs of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
Design pieces such as ‘Bookcase Kwan’ by Studio Ditte and Wim Rietveld’s cabinet will be on display alongside classic and contemporary creations by Friso Kramer Kegel, Ahrend, Doen Materiaalprijs nominated Jacob de Baan and many others!
‘Legends Inspire New Icons, Since 1951′ runs from 4th -24th November 2011 at The Royal College of Art.
