DDW (sub)themes

Dive deeper into #DDW21

With the overarching theme of Dutch Design Week 2021 (DDW21), The Greater Number, DDW is first and foremost calling for less. Where less is not the best solution to more, but better. In 4 subthemes, we explore different perspectives to this quest, and invite the design field to reflect on this during DDW21.
