Let’s start with Piet Hein Eek. Apart from his own designs, he also hosts work and exhibitions by other designers and artists. There’s a restaurant and fabulous shop too. It’s just a really cool place to visit.

From the light into the dark. A little hidden upstairs was a beautiful exhibition with work from Tokihiro Sato (above) and Alexa Lixfeld (below)

Her ‘Phenomenon’ work was also on display in the attic of the old barraks area, gorgeous setting:

The Design Academy had an amazing graduation show. It was extremely busy though:

Onto some more design by various designers on various spots across Dutch Design Week. And can I just suggest if you’re planning on going next year: go for at least three days, there’s just too much to see and do and the atmosphere is so great.

And last but not least there were the visitors. Equally interesting to photograph, we think:
