Dutch design is a term used to connote design in the Netherlands, particularly product design. More specifically, the term refers to the design aesthetic common to designers in the Netherlands. Dutch Design can be characterized as minimalist, experimental, innovative, quirky and humorous. Well, they already got me at minimalist and humorous.
As you might know (or not), I am a big fan of Dutch Design, mainly because of the minimalistic, innovation, functional yet quirky and humorous design. In my first class of my interior design study, I went (for the first time) to an exhibition of a great Dutch designer; MARCEL WANDERS. The exhibition called PINNED UP, seen at Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
Although this exhibition was outstanding and hypnotized me completely, there is one thing I still remember: Some of his collections were based on Royal Blue. I have never thought that Royal Blue could be so COOL. For some, it might be painful to hear; It was LOVE ON FIRST SIGHT.
Back to back: I have visited this Royal Blue exhibition named ‘Het wonder van Delfts Blauw / DELFT WARE WONDER WARE‘ Delft Ware Wonder Ware is by the way such a cool name for an exhibition, trend or concept *deep thoughts*.
