Dutch Design Week
Today's the last day of the Dutch Design Week, the largest annual design event in the Netherlands. This past week Eindhoven has been the mecca for the amazing discovery of around 1,500 talents, ideas and products from design disciplines such as industrial design, concept design, graphic design, textile & fashion, spatial design, food design and design management & trends.
It's too much to list all that stood out, but let me share the work of some of my personal favorites, starting with Sanne Sofia Broks and her Suitcase 20 Kilogram Generation.
The concept of 'temporary design' is again taken to a new level when keeping traveling and identity in mind. Another great example was the fabulous work of Lotty Lindeman and her suitcase closet two years ago.
This year Sanne surprises us with her suitcase that will allow anyone to give an unfamiliar space a bit of a personal and homier touch. The suitcase and it's compartments turn into functional stylish interior objects, adding extra functionality to the suitcase. Your identity is no longer restricted to the twenty kilograms that fit inside the suitcase.
