Dutch Stuff

This September is the first time that Dutch design will have a dedicated presence at London Design Fair, as over 65 studios, collectives, labels and independent makers from the Netherlands come together for an unprecedented national showcase.
Dutch Stuff is a deliberately eclectic, multi-disciplinary exhibition taking place against the raw industrial backdrop of the Old Truman Brewery’s 6,000sq m top-floor space. Presented in the classic Dutch immersive gallery style, the show presents furniture, lighting, textiles, jewellery, ceramics and category-defying sculptural objects from the most innovative minds on the Dutch design scene.
The largest areas of the exhibition will be occupied by three sub-shows curated by the most exciting contemporary design labels associated with the Netherlands: innovation-driven designer-run platform Form&Seek, which is launching its first commercial collection at Dutch Stuff; Eindhoven-based design retailer Vij5, and – at the most experimental end of the spectrum – boundary-pushing design group Dutch Invertuals. Interwoven between these three areas, London Design Fair’s selection of 19 independent designers and studios presents a spectrum of work representing the best of Dutch design today.
