This week on Design.nl we travel to South China where the ever-popular guide to Dutch design, The Dots, presents its sixth edition. We hear about Daan Roosegaarde's new Crystal LED project and also talk with DAE graduate Alissa van Asseldonk regarding her fascinating mapping of the human body and how it is currently being used. Also this week we take a look at the new temporary design aimed to ease the merge between Premsela, NAi and Virtueel Platform, we take a look at the design-related calendars surrounding us and check in with rENs whose latest exhibition is in Denmark.
