Design.nl hit Design Miami/Basel this week.  This week and next we will bring to you the best of what we found in terms of ideas, exhibitions and  presentations.  More than ever before Design Miami/Basel is tapping into the tidal change hitting design - there is more discussion about design as a tool for social change with some impressive attempts to celebrate and communicate the ideas of young designers more focussed on research and experimentation. So while the forum is still dominated by vintage and contemporary limited editions, there is more room for open and candid discussion about what will happen next.  Also opening near Basel this week was "Confrontations: Contemporary Dutch Design" at the Vitra Design Museum Gallery.
