Throwback DDW22

Dutch Design Week 2022 (DDW) was all about getting reading for everything that is coming our way as a society and forging smart coalitions to deal with it.

“We continue to focus on quality and positioning all kinds of design power. The ambition and need to grow to the best platform is greater than ever.” – Miriam van der Lubbe (Creative Head DDW)

Dutch Design Week (DDW) 22-30 October 2022

Theme announced: Get Set! 

Creative Head of DDW22 Miriam van der Lubbe announced the theme of the Dutch Design Week 2022 (DDW22) for this year: Get Set. The theme indicates a shift in mentality: from preparation to action. A signal that has emerged from various encounters with the design community. Get Set was announced by Miriam in a live Q&A on Instagram with designer Pete Fung. Watch the full interview with Miriam or read the article.

October is still a way off and hopefully we have a very nice summer ahead of us. But in the meantime, they are already working hard behind the scenes on organising DDW22. Because of course, there’s still a lot to do! And so team DDW is busy planning the event. There’s plenty going on. Conversations with the design community, potential ambassadors, possible locations, various media and much more.
