Dutch Design at Ventura New York

We are excited to invite you to the second edition of Ventura New York at WantedDesign Manhattan during NYCxDESIGN! The designers will be present and will happily give a tour. We look forward to welcoming you!

From May 20-23, 2017 the group exhibition Human Nature will show the Dutch response to today’s turbulent global landscape. Demonstrating typically Dutch working methods, the designers use their artistry to communicate hopes and fears in response to a rapidly changing world.

The works explore advances in technology and interpretations of natural processes, reflect on human behavior while seizing your attention through seemingly magical effects. Expect everything from design research and new materials to installations and finely designed products. Through the crafting hands of the designer a moment of mutual recognition is created – products, materials and technologies are deployed to make a gesture of solidarity, ultimately revealing the designers’ human nature.

“The Dutch never cease to amaze with their unique approaches to design and society”
Margriet Vollenberg, curator Ventura New York — the Dutch edition
