Dutch Design Week 2022: Wallpaper* highlights from Eindhoven

It’s back and it’s bigger than ever. Dutch Design Week 2022 (until 30 October) marks the festival’s 20th anniversary and features the work of over 2,600 designers in events, exhibitions and venues across town, many of them repurposed industrial buildings relating to the railways or dating back to the era when light bulb manufacturer Philips had its heyday in Eindhoven.

This year’s theme – ‘Get Set’ – is a response to much of humanity’s addiction to growth and consumerism and references our global need to spring into action, change ways of thinking and develop products that stimulate change. It is also about preparing for the economic and environmental crises and challenges ahead. As new creative director Miriam van der Lubbe, who has taken over from predecessor Martijn Paulen, says: ‘We must forge smart coalitions and work together on the missions and the challenges we’re facing. Be prepared and recognise what is going on. Feel involved. But the most important message is that people must get activated.’
