Dutch Design Desk Europe will present Dutch designers on the Business-to-Consumer fair GUT. Die Messe. in Bochum from March 21st till 23rd, 2014.

Under the title ECOCRAFT, DDDE will collaborate with the Province of Limburg and the European Centre for Creative Economy in Dortmund (ECCE). The exhibition will show the work of the Dutch Designers; Ragbag, Think Paper, Bee Collective, Lisanne Janssen and H2 Interior. On Saturday, there will be two lectures given by Janicke Kernland (Studio Kernland) and Stella van Himbergen (Dutch Design in Development). During lunch there will be a matchmaking event between German and Dutch designers.

‘GUT. Die Messe’ stands for the concept of sustainability, which combines ecological, economic and social aspects. It’s about transformation design, an expression of a (sustainable) lifestyle and that is just as important as any new technical innovation.
