25 YEARS OF DROOG

Posted: April 11th 2018

For 25 years, Droog has been working with many prominent Dutch designers on projects and products. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the platform, Droog is organising a range of activities. In Bergen the exhibition Do It Like Droog marks a special year in Museum Kranenburgh. While in Amsterdam an exhibition, Enter the Past snd See The Future, celebrates the highlights that have shaped the platform’s program since its founding in 1993. Enter the Past and See The Future will be on show from 26 April until 27 May 2018.

Look back at a few of the highlights that have made these decades so memorable.

As part of its 25th anniversary celebrations several museums made some major acquisitions.

Recently MoMa in New York acquired the kokon chair from Jurgen Bey. Likewise, Het Centraal Museum in Utrecht brought in an extensive collection of 56 objects. Alongside this year Droog will generously donate its archive to the RKD in The Hague.

In April 1993 Droog made a debut at the International Salone del Mobile in Milan. Now, in 2018, the number of activities in Droog has grown to more than hundreds of projects and products. In the past decades Droog made exhibitions, gave lectures, produced and distribute products, published books and created a shop and hotel. Up until this day Droog responds to the latest developments in design with original yet relevant ideas.
