  • 1. more than 25 design events: www.dutchdesigndouble.com
  • 2. Photography: Merijn van der Vliet Dutch Design Double In September and October 2010, Utrecht and Amsterdam are joining forces for the third time and lots of interesting projects on Dutch design will be bundled under the umbrella of Dutch Design Double. This year‘s edition revolves around the famous and influential Dutch designer, Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888-1964). Rietveld is renowned mostly for his chairs, yet his oeuvre is much broader and includes more than a hundred buildings and a variety of furniture. This diversity is also a central theme in this year‘s Dutch Design Double. Because Utrecht has been declared 2010 ‘Rietveld Year’, the Centraal Museum is exploring Rietveld‘s life and work within the broader context of his era in the large retrospective Rietveld‘s Universe. UTRECHT MANIFEST (UM) / MoDeRnisMTODAY is organizing a symposium in De Pastoe Fabriek on the role of Rietveld in the development of social design – design from the perspective of the user. In Amsterdam, UM / MoDeRnisMTODAY is holding lectures in the Stedelijk Museum on research carried out into Rietveld‘s aluminium chairs; there‘s a ‘Rietveld room’ at Elle Inside Design; and it‘s also possible to visit iconic Rietveld buildings in both Amsterdam and Utrecht. Plus there‘s lots more Rietveld fun to be had; details of which you‘ll find in this programme. Asides from the Rietveld theme, there are a number of other interesting design-related projects taking place. Think DARE #5, the graduation exhibition by Masters students from the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU) or De Woonbeurs Amsterdam at the Amsterdam RAI. The full programme overview of which – of course – Rietveld is pivotal can be found on the following pages, interspersed with Q&As from several Dutch Design Double programmers. And for the latest updates, please visit: www.dutchdesigndouble.com EXPLORE UTRECHT Enjoy Dutch Design in Utrecht and discover the treasures of the city. Be inspired by Trajectum Lumen, a Utrecht tale of light. Explore the artistically lit locations throughout Utrecht’s historical city centre after dark. Dutch Design Double is an initiative of Premsela – Dutch Platform for Design and Fashion, Gemeente Amsterdam, Gemeente Utrecht and Provincie Utrecht. Dutch Design Double has been realised with support from Ministerie van Economische Zaken. UtrechtYourWay.com 3

By focusing attention on Rietveld the person and his working methods, as well as comparing him and his work with famous contemporaries such as Wright, Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe, it puts Rietveld’s creative genius – and his contribution to 20th-century architecture – in a new light.
