Dynamic, multi-faceted showcase of the best Dutch Design today

Today the Dutch Design Yearbook is launched during the opening of DDW. This book, designed by Glamcult Studio, offers a survey of about 60 of the best Dutch designs. It features all of the nominations for the Dutch Design Awards 2015 and leading critics analyse the most talked-about debates and events, and three essays address topical themes. 

Sander Manse makes the case for the development of a distinctive vocabulary for the design disciplines, especially in light of social changes that necessitate a new approach to the design discipline. Saskia van Stein discusses the Rotterdam Metabolists, a group of young design and architecture practices that are contributing in radical ways to a new ecology of the environment. Timo de Rijk writes a short history of bad taste to real taste, culminating in an analysis of the lifestyle of the inescapable hipster.
