Every year during DDW, DDA awards the best Dutch design of the past year, divided into 8 categories. In addition, the DDA Exhibition displays all winning and nominated designs.
Using the power of design for system change
Dutch Design Awards 2021 mark a new élan for the design world with a great deal of innovation and power of change. Impact on people, nature and society is the criterion for powerful design. And designers use ingenious and technological developments to achieve this. This year's crop underlines the fact that designers thrive on change and cross-fertilisation and radiates great optimism.
