Connecting the Dots publishes and presents Dutch designers and design
culture on an international stage during key design events and fairs.
Our activities are always content-driven, with a focus on revealing the
latest developments in design culture. Connecting the Dots also
organises trade shows, exhibitions, debates and networking events.
In 2010, Connecting the Dots started as a magazine commissioned
by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation to
promote Dutch designers during Milan Design Week.
The impact of the first magazine was dramatic, as it was the first
serious attempt to map all Dutch presentations in Milan and to offer
insight into Dutch design culture. The magazine’s success led to
multiple editions during London Design Festival, Business of Design Week
Hong Kong, Guangzhou Design Week, Dutch Design Week and Milan Design
