Dutch designers are noted worldwide for their originality and daring innovations, and their work penetrates the capillaries of our society. Design is everywhere and the world seems makeable. This is an image to which the unorthodox methods and creative power of designers contribute. Although the Covid-19 crisis is fundamentally affecting the creative sector, the accompanying major social and economic challenges facing the world also offer many opportunities. How resilient is the design sector and how can it contribute to the necessary transitions?
The Dutch designers Yearbook describes the design year 2020 and looks to the future. The book offers a candid take on what designers are thinking and making now: through essays and interviews, remarkable graduation projects from Dutch design schools, award-winning work and portraits of iconic design heroes such as Simon Dogger, Christien Meindertsma, Taco Carlier, Harald Dunnink and Bas Timmer.
