dutch design

A country so small in size, but internationally well known as a key player in many industries. The Netherlands and its people are true innovators and therefore obtained leading positions in the world marketplace. For many centuries, the Dutch people have sailed around the world looking for trade opportunities. At today, innovation, sustainability and social responsibility are core values that drive Dutch people in daily life.

During the 1980s the term ‘Dutch design’ started to come in popular use, as it was closely identified with a group of Dutch product designers who have gained international recognization. Dutch design can be characterized as functional, minimalist, experimental, innovative and humorous. A statement often used is ‘More is less’, referring to products or services being very powerful when kept simple and focused on their primary use.

The emergence of an internationally recognized Dutch design scene has been fueled by a strong educational system for designers. World famous Design Academy Eindhoven and Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam have produced many well-known designers. Meantime Dutch designers have developed a very strong presence all over Europe.
