Taking place the last week of October in Eindhoven, Dutch Design Week is an annual event full of exhibitions, workshops and seminars bringing the best of design to several venues across the city. This year, our contributing photographer Cleo Goossens documented her favourite events for Future Positive and left us some notes about the different venues, which you might find useful if you’re planning on attending Dutch Design Week next year.

The area around Strijp-S used to be a Philips factory and nowadays its buildings are filled with lofts, creative companies, restaurants and shops. This is one of the most popular venues during Dutch Design Week.
NRE is another creative area in the city housing a number of different businesses including Stampiet, a little restaurant offering delicious Dutch food. Here you can also find Aterlierdorp, which means ‘Studio Village’ and it’s an area with studios owned by different types of artists.
Sectie C is a workspace comprising studios by 94 designers, artists, photographers, musicians, graphic designers and other creative companies.
