When you think about design, you often think about beautiful objects for everyday use. The route Art & Collectables explores this, just as the art form of design. From unique lighting to an art experience, art and collectables are a vital part of Dutch Design Week. Visit young designers and experienced artists by going the Art & Collectables route.

Oskar Peet, of the design studio Os & Oos, talks about the importance of this route: “Collectables are important for us because when we graduated from the Design Academy, we had to make our work. We had to show the world what we can do, with the hope of later on putting our works into production. So I think it is fitting that we are a part of the Art & Collectables Route, along with the other students that we have chosen to join us, the young generation.”
