some music? Head off the Effenaar for a concert of singer songwriter Jeremy Loops, or go dancing until the early hours at the opening party on ‘Stratumseind’, Eindhoven’s main nightlife area. One of the many highlights of Dutch Design Week is the Dutch Design Awards, where designers show their masterpieces to the public. The most talented creative mind wins the prestigious Dutch Design Award. With categories such as fashion, communication, design research and habitat, this event creates a platform for design in its broadest sense. The award ceremony is on 29 October in the Effenaar.

Did the above Philips story interest you? The Philips Museum will be showing an exhibition of product designs during the Space Age and its influence on later designs. Several iconic products and graphic designs from the period 1957 to 1975 will be on display. Another event not to miss is the graduation show from the Design Academy Eindhoven. The Design Academy has produced many world-famous designers, so its graduation show offers a glimpse of the design stars of the future. The show is on all week in de Witte Dame (the White Lady), in the heart of the city.

One of Eindhoven’s latest hotspots is De Strijp. This former factory site now hosts various contemporary design companies in buildings that were previously used by Philips. During Dutch Design Week, Strijp transforms in a nine-day-long outdoor festival with great food trucks, music, and exhibitions. Food, music, and design – what could possibly be better? Dutch Design Week takes place from 22 - 30 October 2016 For more information and the full programme visit www.ddw.nl www.facebook.com/DutchDesignWeek
