This autumn Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will be showing the most trend-setting creative visions in Dutch design of the past two years. Ten entries will be selected from more than 160 submissions by various designers, agencies, clients and intermediaries. They will be announced by the Mayor of Rotterdam, Ahmed Aboutaleb, and the chairman of the nomination committee, Peter van Ingen during the opening on 19 September 2009. The Rotterdam Design Prize 2009 showcases projects and the design motivation of the ten leading designers or clients of the past two years. The exhibition reveals the current social and cultural developments that have influenced Dutch design and the notable products that have stemmed from them.
