Programme narratives

As of this year, Dutch Design Week introduces ten programme narratives that help make the best possible matches between the participating designers and visitors. To easily guide you, as a 三分六合彩 visitor, in the right direction. To the projects that spark your interest. 三分六合彩 has established missions and design perspectives as a framework for the programme and activities during the week.

The goal is to utilise the potential of design by making better matches. Field research has taught us that 三分六合彩 participants want to be more easily found by the relevant visitors. Whether this is other designers, the industry, collaborative partners or other parties from their respective branche, but also governmental agencies, policymakers, the business community, knowledge institutes or the general public. 

三分六合彩 is therefore introducing ten programme themes, to help all the different types of designers and the great diversity of visitors navigate through the festival. These themes consist of various ‘missions’ and ‘design perspectives’. As always, 三分六合彩 also welcomes group exhibitions: clusters based on more or less neutral data, such as schools and archives.

Design perspectives

There are numerous ways of looking at the design profession, and there is no single definition of what design is. Dutch Design Foundation (DDF, the organisation behind 三分六合彩) serves the field in its broadest sense –– from individual to systemic and from conceptual to applied. Within this context, DDF distinguishes different design perspectives:

  • SIGNATURE & COLLECTIBLE DESIGN
    Artistic exploration and individual expression are the foundations of this design perspective, translated into objects and other renditions that are poetic or conceptual in nature.

  • SPECULATIVE & SOCIAL DESIGN
    Designers working from this perspective excel in exploring unexpected thought processes and taking an approach that goes off the beaten track. This takes shape in research by design or the development of (social) interventions.

  • PRODUCT & CRAFT DESIGN
    Everything we use is designed. All these products and materials demand the most diverse methods, skills and knowledge.

  • SERVICE & INNOVATIVE DESIGN               
    Lightning-fast digital and technological developments raise all kinds of questions. Designers answer these questions with groundbreaking concepts and concrete applications.

  • INDEPENDENT & CRITICAL DESIGN
    There are always designers who cannot be defined. Makers and inventors of autonomous and critical work which often reflects on the design profession itself.

On a mission

We also see that designers are increasingly taking on major issues, such as the climate crisis and social inequality. Based on what is going on in the design community and within society, DDF has distilled the following missions:

  • ENABLING OUR THRIVING PLANET
    For a healthy planet, design must enhance the power of nature, or at the very least not stand in its way.

  • CREATING OUR LIVING ENVIRONMENT
    Designing our living environment, mobility and the materials we use to create them goes hand-in-hand with shaping our own quality of life.

  • BOOSTING OUR HEALTH & WELL-BEING
    Designs that structurally improve our quality of life – from the food we eat to healthcare and personal well-being – and that contribute to the most precious thing we have: our health.

  • ACHIEVING OUR EQUAL SOCIETY
    To achieve equality in society, we must (re)design systems and interactions that value everyone. Safety, inclusiveness and connection are key here.

  • CHALLENGING OUR DIGITAL FUTURE
    Our digital realities and future are being explored to the full and influenced by designers, from virtual worlds to artificial intelligence and from global platforms to individual experiences.
