DDF is the organisation behind (a.o.) Dutch Design Week (DDW), but what exactly is DDW?
In October of each year, the biggest design event in Northern Europe takes place in Eindhoven. DDW presents work and ideas of more than 2600 designers to more than 350,000 visitors from home and abroad. In more than 100 locations across the city, DDW organises and facilitates exhibitions, lectures, prize ceremonies, networking events, debates, parties and DDW Music Festival.
DDW is different from other design events, because it concentrates on the designs of the future. Although during the event every imaginable discipline and aspect of design is on offer, the emphasis is on experiment, innovation and cross-overs. Exceptional attention each year goes to work and development of young talent.
