From October 23 through October 31 2010, Eindhoven presents the 9th edition of Dutch Design Week, the largest design event in the Netherlands. Around 1500 designers from home and abroad will show their work all over the city of Eindhoven from design disciplines such as industrial design, concept design, graphic design, textile & fashion, spatial design, fooddesign and design management & trends. Visitors will be given insight into the entire development process from concept to product in various disciplines ranging from industrial design to applied arts. The participants include established bureaus, high-profile designers, talented newcomers, and recently graduated designers, one of the reasons why this Dutch Design Week is the perfect meeting place for designers, companies, and public.
There are nearly 60 different locations housing one or more events. Besides exhibitions, there are numerous lectures, workshops, fashion shows and seminars during Dutch Design Week. Unless stated otherwise, admission to the exhibitions is free of charge. Please note that visitors need to register in advance for most seminars, workshops and lectures.
