It’s not surprising that Michel has been asked to contribute to the selection for the ‘Product’ category of the 2016 Dutch Design Awards. In 2014, Spark won a Dutch Design Award with the Rescue Tip-board: an innovative inflatable rescue raft. Michel is a representative for applied, functional products and he’s always on the look-out for socially responsible products.
DDA, one of the most important prizes in the design field, annually rewards the best of Dutch design. Decisive in the selection is the degree to which the design is innovative and in how much it contributes to society. Curious about the work of the finalists? Visit the retrospective exhibition during Dutch Design Week, 17 – 25 October.
The finalists will be announced on 9 June. We’ll keep our eyes open and are curious about which products Michel will vote for.
