Highlights from Dutch Design Week 2022 captured in Dezeen video

In the first of three Instagram reels shot by Dezeen for Northern Europe's largest design event Dutch Design Week, Alice Finney showcases our pick of this year's events, exhibitions and installations.

Taking place from 22 to 30 October across the city of Eindhoven, Dutch Design Week (DDW) 2022 plays host to a number of exhibitions and installations as well as panel discussions and networking events.

Key projects include a pavilion with brightly coloured solar panels created by solar designer Marjan van Aubel in collaboration with Dutch architecture studio V8 Architects, a show about the potential of human waste by social designer Fides Lapidaire and Design Academy Eindhoven's graduate show.

The first video shows highlights from DDW

To explore the nine-day event, Dezeen filmed a series of three videos hosted by Dezeen's design reporter Finney, the first of which rounds up the highlights of the week.

This video will be followed by two others, with each exploring a different major project that centres on this year's theme of Get Set.

A standout part of DDW is university Design Academy Eindhoven's graduate show, which this year includes a project made from insect resin, a model future city informed by Artificial Intelligence and a collection of t-shirts dyed with waste tree bark.

Work by both emerging designers and established international designers, including Sabine Marcelis, Kiki van Eijk and Milan-based design studio Formafantasma, are among the other exhibitions on display.
