Amsterdam is one of the most important design capitals of Europe. To show this to visitors from home and abroad, for four years in row the Amsterdam Design event takes place in September.
Recently the Amsterdam Design Foundation has been established. With support by the Council of Amsterdam the continuity of the September design month has been guaranteed for years to come. The foundation will actively engage in making the event grow in quality and optimally use every opportunity Amsterdam has to offer in the area of design.
With the website and the publication we give a clear view of all the events and activities Amsterdam has to offer the design loving audience in the edition 2007. From industrial design to graphic design, from jewellery to multi media, from photography to architecture, the whole spectrum is in the spotlights.
The index pages with addresses of shops, restaurants and hotels which are distinguished in the area of design and interiors complete this publication.
Our special thanks go to all parties who have made contemporary design central to the month September. They have made Amsterdam Design 2007 possible.
