Organisation in Design new art director Klokgebouw

Dutch Design Week and Organisation in Design announce collaboration 

By Editor Design.nl / 20-06-2013

Organisation in Design (OiD) is going to play a major role in the twelfth edition of Dutch Design Week (DDW). The design event has invited the organisation led by Margriet Vollenberg and Margo Konings to take the responsibility for the concept and the definition of the exhibition part at the Klokgebouw. It is OiD’s main task to turn this location into the beating heart of the week.

Concept
OiD envisions that with the ‘Ode to the City’, an overview exhibition of exhibitors throughout the city, the Klokgebouw will be the not to be missed starting point for both professional visitors and the general public. In addition, there are concrete plans for special presentations of talented individual designers and design-related labels and institutes. Details on this will be published at a later stage. OiD is also in charge of the selection of exhibitors at the Klokgebouw. A new aspect in the selection procedure is the participation of international players; in this way, OiD positions Dutch design more clearly and in a much broader context.  

A First
For OID, which for four years now has made a splash with Ventura Projects in Milan, Berlin, Kortrijk and elsewhere, the collaboration means not only a challenge but also a ‘first’. Margo Konings: “We do have much experience with exhibitions and events of equal scale in other countries, but we have never set up something similar in our own country. For us, this is a wonderful opportunity to help DDW define a new direction. We can put our expertise to work in the Netherlands and at the same time discover new talent.” 

Extended application
The registration procedure for exhibitors at the Klokgebouw will be adjusted and the registration period will be extended by one month until August 1, 2013. The information for registration as stated on the website of the event will be adjusted as soon as possible. The deadline for applications for other locations of DDW remains July 1, 2013.

The twelfth edition of DDW takes place in Eindhoven from Oct.19 through Oct. 27, 2013.More information:   www.ddw.nl
