Dutch Design Week 2019: ‘Workplace’ best in show
Dutch Design Week 2019'Workplace’ best in show
With an altogether different vibe to UK events such as Clerkenwell Design Week and the London Design Festival, Dutch Design Week takes on a more innovative persona. The cool, younger European cousin of the A&D event world, if you will.
Opening its doors once again this week, the festival (running until 27 October) celebrates emerging creative designers seeking to make their mark on the commercial interiors world. And with the industry being so fiercely dedicated to ‘biomaterials’ this year, the event is already shaping up to be the most inspiring yet.
With so many installations and exhibits on offer, we’ve sifted through the programme to pick out the must-visit stands for workplace design ingenuity.
MODULAR BUILDING CONCEPT MADE FROM CARDBOARD
From the artistic to the groundbreaking, Wikkelhouse transforms an everyday material into an imaginative solution for workplace, or even residential use. Comprising a 1.2 metre deep structure, cardboard is bonded with eco-friendly glue to create a versatile and adaptable building that’s as beautiful as it is practical.
Tying in perfectly to the ‘personal sanctuaries’ theme, Wikkelhouse can be placed anywhere without the need for foundations. So for anyone dreaming of a secluded forest-based work retreat, this could be the answer they’ve been seeking.

Based around three themes: Concentrate, Cocreate and Celebrate, ELLE Decoration has collaborated with flooring specialist Tarkett on its immersive installation, Fluid Forces.
Offering visitors the chance to experience elements of the future workplace, the exhibit champions ‘zoning’ and its ability to positively shape office employees’ health, happiness and wellbeing.
