On view in Eindhoven from 22–30 October, the latest edition of Dutch Invertuals was a success for curator Wendy Plomp and the 13 designers in the exhibition. A perennial highlight of Dutch Design Week for seven years running, the exhibition has consistently offered a thought-provoking and visually stimulating collection of new projects.

For “Power Play“, Plomp invited the best and brightest Dutch designers to investigate the “future energy landscape”. Broadly addressing efficiency and self-sufficiency, the timely brief yielded several high- and low-tech scenarios. From sound harvesters by Emilie Pallard and Niels Heymans to Hongjie Yang’s experimental fossil materials, the exhibition literally and figuratively captures the “energy” of Dutch design.

Full list of participating designers: Bastiaan de Nennie, Bram Vanderbeke, Carlo Lorenzetti, Daniel de Bruin, Edhv, Emilie Pallard & Niels Heymans, Emma Wessel & Tijs Gilde, Hongjie Yang, Michael Schoner, Milou Voorwinden, Roos Meerman, Tijmen Smeulders, and Wendy Andreu.
