We Are Here, Now
We question our role as designers

We embrace differences
We observe our surroundings
We offer new perspectives
We are Dutch
We are here, now!
The exhibition ‘We Are Here, Now‘ showcases work by Dutch designers who represent a new generation of emerging designers; a generation that is motivated by the impact of their work on the world. The works presented in this exhibition are not the all-encompassing answers, but part of a larger and more sustainable way of thinking about the world that—if embraced by the whole of society—would help us move forward. So let’s start here and now!
In this exhibition, we question ourselves as designers, producers, thinkers, doers and as world citizens—where do we want to be and how do we get there?
As designers we are eager to solve problems. We are aware of what surrounds us and strive to push the boundaries that will bring us closer to a world of our own making. To achieve this goal we must sometimes let go of the logical path in order to clear the way for new perspectives. The solutions we create are informed by the observation of our surroundings, the people we work with, and an understanding of the resources we design for. We are Dutch designers and look at the world from a down-to-earth perspective. We respect, but also rethink and reimagine what is already here. We embrace the differences that bring us together, offering beauty in the uncommon and unexpected.
To build our world we search, we try, we do, we make.
We are here, now. Join us!
