Art Exhibition Dutch + Droog Design

Art Exhibition Dutch + Droog Design   Droog was founded 25 years ago by Renny Ramakers and Gijs Bakker with the aim of promoting Dutch design. The first Droog presentations in 1993 in Amsterdam and during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, became a worldwide success. Droog was on the international map.   Dutch Design literally means no more than 'Dutch design. The term has been used for decades as a hallmark for good and special design from the Netherlands, but also as a marketing strategy that is used to suit all kinds of designs. The message is: is it Dutch Design then it is a good design.   Highlights of Droog in the nineties and the first decade of this century. Many of the early designs for Droog are graduation projects, mainly from students of the Design Academy Eindhoven. Droog was a springboard for young Dutch designers such as Richard Hutten and Marcel Wanders. Designs from international designers were also added to the Droog collection.   The Central Museum has been collecting Droog Design since the end of the last century. The museum has more than 200 Droog designs, making it the largest museum collection in the world. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Droog Design, 25 designs from this extensive collection and curated by Natalie Dubois will be shown at the Erasmus Huis opening, 21 November 2018.   Period of exhibition is from 21 November to the end of February   Location: Erasmus Huis
