A Dutch Delight

19th October 2013

Always the highlight of the design calendar, Dutch Design week is always truly inspirational and sets the tone for me for the year - highlighting what will evolve in Milan and London.

The Design Academy, the draw for most people was unfortunately this year disappointing - whether it signifies the turmoil the school has had over the last year or whether it is simply a sign of the times I am not sure, but it did not leave me spinning with a thousand ideas.

Having said that there were some fantastic projects that were showcased and were truly beautiful and inspiring.

Here I am just showing a few snap shots of the most captivating projects to tantalise and will follow up with more detail and projects over the coming posts and will also show some of the other highlights of DDW 2013.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
