The 24 nominees in 8 categories for Dutch Design Awards 2022 have been announced. Every year, Dutch Design Awards (DDA) celebrates the best Dutch designers and their most impressive and groundbreaking projects, and examines the impact that these different disciplines, perspectives and solutions have on our society. DDA will announce the winners during a live DDA Award Show. This will take place at Dutch Design Week 2022 (from 22 to 30 October) and mark the 20th edition of DDA.
