The Dutch Design Center is an inspiring platform for the best and latest of Dutch design that aims to spark unique collaborations internationally.

With the arrival of the first Dutch Design Center (DDC) outside the Netherlands, the strong pedigree of Dutch creativeness is powerfully represented in the Middle East and Africa.

The inspiring on- and offline platform aims to unlock international business opportunities for Dutch creativity. The center is a collaborative effort of leading Dutch firms: HunterDouglas, Keller Kitchens, Royal Ahrend and Skyne. Next to being the proud co-founder of DDC Skyne is responsible for its strategy, branding, positioning and communication.

From its physical location in Dubai Design District, d3, the Middle East’s leading design destination, the center orchestrates boutique exhibitions, noteworthy keynote speeches, creative workshops and unique collaborations. This is done through key partnerships with reputed design initiatives, designers and creative communities including Dutch Design Foundation, Royal Philips, DCI, d3 and Art Dubai.
