home the Dutch design center
“As d3 continues to evolve into a fully fledged international design hub, we’re delighted to welcome to our home the Dutch Design Center which itself supports the very essence of d3, to inspire collaboration, exchange knowledge and innovate across borders.
The strengthening of partnerships with international design centers is one key element in building a creative neighbourhood that has a global outlook and we hope that many more initiatives like the Dutch Design Center will find their home at d3.”

presentation of design
“I’m delighted to have worked so closely with the Dutch Design Center in Dubai to create a special line up of Dutch design for this year’s Dubai Design Week.
Having three standout contributors to the live programme alongside an exhibition with cutting-edge design thinking and creativity reflects on the partnership we’ve developed and the ambition of each of the contributors to establish high-quality dialogue and presentation of design in Dubai.”
