This week disaster hit at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen when an ill woman fell on Hella Jongerius' vases.  Some media outlets have responded with contemptuous disdain, revealing much of the Wilders anti-elitist mentality that has swept the country. At the end of the year we look to what lies ahead as we talk budget cuts with some of Holland's prominent designers and travel to Design Miami/ to see how Dutch design is fairing there. Jurgen Bey lectures us on the future of design and winner of AVRO's fashion competition Evelien van Pruissen shows us the future of fashion. We also have details of the Henrik Vibskov concept store, which will stay open for the next 100 days in Amsterdam, and take a look at Camille Cortet's molting legwear.
