Dutch Design Week 2014 – Sifting and Sorting

How can I even begin to process everything I’ve seen? That was the question that went through my head as I drove back home after participating in a two-day VIP press tour of Dutch Design Week 2014. What an amazing weekend I had. I was bombarded with hundreds of innovative designs, ideas and concepts, got to meet tons of new and established designers and exchanged ideas with fellow design writers from all over the world.  Shalom Yuval and Hagit! Do Svidaniya Olga! Catch you later Robert. Tot snel in Benthuizen, Sandra! And hou doe, Monique!

And so here I am, sifting and sorting through well over eight hundred photo’s. I decided not to wait too long and publish the first batch today. Do I see patterns? Absolutely! Can I put them into words on the 6:54 train between Rotterdam and Amsterdam? I don’t think so. But give me some more time and I know I’ll figure it out.

 PS: You have until October 26 to visit Dutch Design Week 2014. For more pictures check out @therealinteriorator Instagram feed.
