"Dutch design" at the Dubai Design Week 2021
Dutch design began its rise in popularity in 1918 and continued to gain momentum through the 1990s. Dutch design refers to anything from interior design to fashion and even architecture. The movement started with a focus on graphic design, but during the 1993 Milan Furniture Fair, Dutch design took off in the interior home design world.
Dutch design can be characterized as minimalist, experimental, innovative, quirky and humorous. It is a permanent reflection of a culture and attitude that is characteristic of the Netherlands and the Dutch people. The Dutch identify with a practical, solution-oriented approach and let playfulness and humour speak in their simplistic designs.
What truly sets Dutch design apart is its focus on the designers. The designers that create this contemporary interior design are integral to the entire development and production process. While other types of design often use mass production or technology-driven practices to create their products, Dutch design focuses on each element of the design and many pieces are actually handmade.
