The Dutch are renowned worldwide for design – design that is synonymous with innovation, superior craftsmanship, and excellent quality. Not only are they designers and builders of creative projects large and small, but they are also at the heart of some of the most ambitious real estate developments around the globe. They literally built much of their own country by reclaiming land from the sea. And more recently, developed cutting-edge engineering to create highly sophisticated flood defenses that protect their low-lying nation from the sea.
Where there are problems, they find solutions. Out-of-the-box thinking is instinctive. When it comes to the seemingly impossible, the Dutch never say never. They take a straightforward approach to design. Their premise is simple yet powerful – and a potent tour de force when combined with an attention-to-detail sensibility. They also know when not to take things too seriously and possess an idiosyncratic sense of humor that recognizes the beauty of whimsy and the unexpected, that is evident in their work.
