Ole Bouman: Design is to Constantly Find New Horizon



SUMMARY: The Netherlands is a country rich in designers. Dutch designers are good at combining innovation with conscience, experimentation with practicality, rationality with vitality, and they take improving social conditions and solving problems as principles. This belief also runs through all areas of Dutch graphic design, craft furniture, urban development, and architectural landscape. "Dutch Design" has been used as a universal label for Dutch avant-garde designers. The attitude and spirit of the Netherlands has brought about many innovative designs that are humane, retrospective, and beyond the hierarchy and focus on the future. Designers pay more attention to the sustainability of projects. This forum introduced the excellent Dutch designers and their featured works to help you understand Dutch design.
