What I am Living: Dutch Design Week. From Northern Europe to Italy and from Italy to the US. From the US to London and now finally back to Northern Europe. Sometimes, rather than a never ending journey, I think life is a cycle. Always bringing you back to places that you love and that inspire you. Without you planning to. Sometimes I think it’s my saudade, doing her magic. That’s why after Copenhagen, I’m here again. In Eindhoven. In the Netherlands. Dutch Design Week starts – in fact – today.

For the biggest Design event in Northern Europe. With the aim of promoting a Dutch attitude in Design, Dutch Design Week seeks out for designers that identify with a functionalist, humanist, free and solution-oriented approach.

Dutch Design Week: If not us, then who?
Why am I here? Well, I mainly just fell for their theme, really. “Dutch Design Week theme announced: If not us, then who?”. If not Designers, then who? And I could not resist. I am in fact a firm believer that the world has been and Is beign designed. Constantly. And constantly changing. Unique. This means that designers have a great responsibility in our present and future. And I am here to watch them bear it up high, and share that responsibility with them. Just as I did with my father.
The world is the designers’ greatest project, and I am part of it.
