Design Fair

30 April 2023


Following the success of 2022, the Design Fair returns to the institute’s arcade this year.

Stroll between the concrete pillars of our imposing arcade as you walk from one ‘living room’ to another, admiring distinctive design pieces that you can take home with you. This year’s edition will also feature some fashion designers and labels in conjunction with the exhibition Workwear. The Design Fair offers a wide range of unique items for every budget. Among the designers taking part are The DIRT, Quinn van Etten, World of Blends, STORE as well as designs from up-and-coming designers from the Netherlands and abroad.

As well as visiting the fair you can check out the institute, a pop-up exhibition in Gallery 3, an auction and a presentation in the auditorium.

Entrance to the Design Fair is free. Tickets are required for the Workwear exhibition.
