Dutch Design – Yearbook 2013 published by NAi Publishers — Rotterdam, The Netherlands
A great deal of design is used for promotion purposes. In the midst of all these good intentions, the Dutch Design Yearbook 2013 tries above all else to take an independent stance. The selection is made by professionals. They each choose the best examples from their own field and discuss and select the nominations for the Dutch Design Awards, which are presented annually during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. Dutch Design Yearbook 2013 presents an attractive overview of more than 60 of the best spatial, product, fashion and graphic designs produced in the Netherlands in 2012–2013. It also looks into the crystal ball to predict which designs will change our surroundings in the future.
