Whether we are reclaiming land or reclaiming our future, the Dutch have always been pragmatic and innovative in figuring out durable, smart solutions for the challenges facing us. Being Dutch inherently means pushing boundaries when tackling problems. Like Americans, we value new ideas and enjoy exploring them, an entrepreneurial spirit that shows in our famous Dutch Design.
Ambassador Rudolf Bekink of the Royal Netherlands Embassy and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines would like to take you on a journey to see how our creative innovations touch your daily life.
We will host a pop-up exhibition together with Yksi Design at the Knight Studio at the Newseum. The expo will showcase more than 50 examples of sustainable and social Dutch Design, including clothes that generate energy, baskets made out of used flip-flops, and chairs out of used refrigerators.
