After extensive consultation with the design community, key partners and relevant agencies, Dutch Design Foundation (DDF) has decided to let Dutch Design Week (DDW) 2020 forge ahead, yet a little differently.
Dutch Design Week (DDW) 2020 will be a combination of a live and online festival, with the focus on relevant matchmaking for the designers. A limited number of people will be able to visit the participating designers in the form of pre-planned visits to studio exhibitions. Alongside this, the major public event will take place online.
Given the current circumstances, a DDW such as we are used to, with more than 350,000 visitors, large central locations and various organised transport options, is unrealistic. Consultation with the municipality of Eindhoven and Brabant Southeast Safety Region has confirmed reality. So the DDW organisation has developed a scenario with the design community for a compact ‘live’ DDW.
