The Dutch Design Prizes are open to all Dutch designers, who can submit designs under a number of categories. Prizes are also awarded for the most sustainable design (Design for All Award) and for a design aimed at improving living standards in developing countries.

This year, the Dutch Design Prizes awarded 11 prizes. They went to Mediamatic for their El Hema exhibition, the Designpolitie for Gorilla, …, Staat for House of Bols, Maurice Mentjens Design for the DSM Meeting and Reception Area, Landlab for their design for the Funenpark, Scope Design Strategy for the SmartFIX, Evert Nijland for Venezia and Qrooz of Qrooz Marine Cabins. The Senz Umbrellas storm umbrella, which can withstand high winds, received the Eindhoven Design Prize and the Audi Design Prize.

The Design for All Award went to Sanne Kistemaker, who developed a method that allows older people to keep in touch with their children and grandchildren through a web log. The “Piece of Family” is a writing pad that sends written analogue messages to the digital family web log with one click of the mouse. The design was developed in cooperation with Vodafone.

The High-Spot won the Toon van Tuijl award, which was awarded this year for the first time during the Dutch Design Prizes ceremony. This award is aimed at stimulating designs that would likely have a positive effect on the socio-economic conditions of people living in the developing world. The High-Spot was designed by Ghanamoves, a group of students from the Delft Technical University.
