You could say I’ve got quite a few favorite locations during Dutch Design Week. It will be a challenge to fit them all in my program. One of the locations I definately will not pass by is Kazerne & Loods. In the old days this building stationed a military police base and a former warehouse of the public works departement. This Dutch Design Week the complete 2500 m2 will be open to the public for the first time in many years. Next to the over 40 (international) top design talents, which are part of Kazerne Expo, there will be the launch of Kazerne Lab. Here designers and other creatives will form cross-overs to challenge social issues.
Just as last year the expo will be hosted by Eat Drink Design. New this year is Loodsrestaurant where Ronald Kunis (restaurant De Kas Amsterdam, River Café Londen) and Edwin Severijn (Sot-ly-Liasse) will be cooking you the greatest lunches and diners. Last year you could sit at the bar on the Saddle Stool by Vroonland & Vraandrager (new products this year!), this year you will be seated on chairs by Maarten Baas.
Do you feel like going yet? Take a look at my images of last year. I am pretty sure you don’t want to pass this one this year.

Absolutely brilliant! is how I describe the work by photographer Lisa Klappe.
Eat Drink Design has a lot of my favorite designers in their exhibition. I love the work by Ontwerpduo.

Idiots make contemporary fairytales. It’s a bit bizar but I can’t help loving the magical mood.
