How One Culture Continues To Dominate The Design Industry
Take a deeper look at how and why the Dutch are a constistent powerhouse nation in the fashion world.
As a pioneering culture in the world of design, we continue to see outstanding examples of consumer and conceptual products originating from The Netherlands.
The work of Dutch designers gained world recognition in the early 20th century, much of which is grounded in a modernist tradition (i.e. De Stijl), a tradition that is typified by simplicity, minimalism, functionality, and sparsity that enabled objects to convey ideas about society, nature, and even design itself. Since then, Dutch designers have moved into new forays of experimentation with products, materials, and lifestyle branding. As Dutch Design Week goes into full throttle in Eindhoven, we wanted to highlight some of the stellar work that is keeping them at the forefront of creative design.
