We are optimists. We believe that 'designers' - no matter their specialization - are essential for shaping our future. Which is why Dutch Design Foundation focuses on the strengthening of their position, their development and their importance. We do this by supporting Dutch designers, deploy the power of innovative and visionary design on an even greater scale, stimulating excellence through supporting talent, exploration of the current meaning of Dutch Design and offering inspiration; providing direction, facilitating research and debate.

Foundation reinforces
the design

Throughout the year, we organize a growing number of activities. We stimulate young design talents, we link design with society, we inspire commerce and create depth. We are active throughout the Netherlands, in Europe and far beyond. And above all we are ambitious.

Which is why we invest in strong platforms. We do this for example through the presentation of the Dutch Design Awards and organizing Dutch Design Week. Together with around 2,500 designers and hundreds of volunteers we create this unique event in Eindhoven each year, that was visited by around 275,000 people in 2015.
