By Editor / 26-09-2013

The design magazine has already acquired a reputation at the design fairs in Milan, London, Hong Kong and Guangzhou as the essential fair guide that features all participating Dutch designers. During the upcoming twelfth Dutch Design Week, the first edition of Connecting the Dots in Netherlands will become a reality.

In Eindhoven, Connecting the Dots offers an overview at your fingertips. More than 100 presentations, discussions, lectures, and over 600 designers are included in the magazine. Convenient city maps make getting lost practically impossible. 7000 copies of the magazine will be published and distributed free of charge at various presentations in the city.

Connecting the Dots also wants to inform international visitors about Dutch design culture and is publishing the magazine in English. Various articles give an insight into topics of the day and focus on design culture in Eindhoven. Connecting the Dots sheds light on the developments in the City of Light and also provides a wider Dutch perspective.

Birdcages and artificial flowers: cultural and material diversity in Dutch Design, is the first article in a series that gives the floor to high-profile teachers of theoretical design courses. In this first installment, Joana Ozorio de Almeida Meroz, lecturer at the Design Cultures master's degree program at the VU Amsterdam, stretches the concept of Dutch Design. For some time now, Connecting the Dots has had a series in which curators throw light on the value of design for their museum. In this edition, Sue-an van der Zijpp, curator of the Groninger Museum, reveals the museum's unique method of acquiring design. In The Art of Solving Wicked Problems, Yu-Lan van Alphen talks about the commitment of the DOEN Foundation in the field of design. In addition, a series of portraits and interviews of eight designers living and working in Eindhoven, including Raw Color, Rogier van der Heiden and Nacho Carbonell, offers an impression of the City of Light as the birthplace of innovative design.
