Dutch Design Yearbook 2011
Today's best Dutch designs
The Dutch Design Yearbook 2011 presents a survey of more than 60 of the best Dutch designs produced in 2010–2011 in the fields of spatial design, product design, graphic design and fashion. A selection of important events, publications and exhibitions adds colour to the design year and content to the design debate. In three essays, Max Bruinsma, Victor van der Chijs/Daan Roosegaarde and Georgette Koning analyse current developments in the design profession and look at the role of design in the future. The Dutch Design Yearbook 2011 is presented on 22 October 2011 during the Dutch Design Awards show.
The theme of the Dutch Design Yearbook 2011 is the future. Design is evolving rapidly, and designers and their methods are increasingly being employed for forward-looking explorations and possible scenarios in the field of design, as well as for the development of strategies. The texts in this edition of the Design Yearbook therefore devote plenty of attention to anticipated changes in the design profession, to the question of how design provides an answer to current and future social, societal and economic developments, and to designers and their visions for the future.
