Dutch Design Week report

Text by Benjamin Kempton

The eighth annual Dutch Design Week took place last week and Wallpaper's Deputy Interiors Editor, Benjamin Kempton, was our envoy. With more than 1,500 exhibitors in 60 different locations across the city of Eindhoven there was plenty to take in, proving Dutch design, at times too conceptual or whimsical for many people's tastes, is currently booming.
