Amsterdam Design Report: Droog
Irwin Weiner ASID - DId you miss us? Jay and I were in Amsterdam last week, but you probably weren't aware of it; we made certain to have articles and videos lined up and ready to post on Design2Share while we were gone.
Amsterdam was a little spring getaway, but it was also an art and design pilgrimage, and this week we'll be featuring some of the discoveries we made during our too-brief visit.
The first stop on this lovely Memorial Day (hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday weekend!) is Droog, which many consider to be ground zero for the new wave of Dutch design.
Enjoy today's featured video on Droog's origins, philosophy, and iconic pieces (click on video at the top of this post).
And enjoy a few photographs and comments from our visit to the Droog store on a rainy Monday afternoon after taking in a thrilling matinee production of La Traviata at the Amsterdam Music Theater.
