ONE WEEK ABOUT Designers from Rotterdam
Introducing Designplatform Rotterdam. Design platform Rotterdam wants to contribute to a thriving entrepreneurial environment for design and creativity in the Rotterdam region. We do this by organizing and moderating get-togethers. We aim for an ongoing high-level conversation during which designers, makers, other entrepreneurs and the public together reflect on innovative scenarios.
We bring people together from different backgrounds and encourage them to speak openly about their experiences. In this unexpected composition, people who would rarely or never meet each other often develop interesting ideas and well thought-out plans. In recent years, we organized exhibitions, a contest with awards ceremonies, discussions and brainstorming sessions, coaching meetings and presentations. In the coming years, we will continue working on a creative climate for Rotterdam.
In this issue of One Week About on Dutch Design Daily we present six Rotterdam designers that the city can be proud of. It would not have been difficult to present 25 or 250 designers, but we simply have to make a choice.
