Dutch Design Foundation and Catawiki are joining forces again this year, with the DDW Talks ‘Contemporary Icons’, Dutch Design Week x Catawiki Auction and this year also with an extra award at the Dutch Design Awards.

Catawiki is the leading online marketplace for special objects. More than 75,000 objects are put up for auction to a global online audience every week. Via Catawiki, designers can auction their products in the marketplace, varying from a prototype to whole collections. By collaborating with the Dutch Design Foundation, both organisations hope to strengthen the bond between buyer and seller, designer and collector, both online and offline.
