Throughout Dutch Design Week, in Eindhoven from 20 to 28 October 2012, Frame will recommend the best exhibition or event to see every single day. You can also read our Pick of the Day in the daily DDW newspaper.

Dutch folk are famously opinionated, and never more so than when it comes to design (as we at the Frame office can certainly vouch.)

So, going on the trusty old principle, ‘If you can’t beat ‘em, join em’, we suggest heading over to this evening’s Design Debate and throwing in your own two cents. Kicking off at 16:00 at the Designhuis the debate will attempt to address the theme: ‘How much design can we digest?’ This will translate as a look at design’s newer and less tangible manifestations and its potential future contributions to our society, sciences and systems.

The discussion will be moderated by Walter Amerika from the Design Academy Eindhoven. He will be joined by four speakers: urbanist and futurist Liam Young, founder of Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today, MoMA researcher and writer William Meyers, and two Netherlands-based journalists,Tracey Metz and David Heidt.

They will be looking at the topic from the point of view of evidence gathered at Dutch Design Week, adding fresh perspectives to the many exhibits on show.

Organised by those tireless promoters of Dutch design the Premsela Foundation, this evening’s event is intended to be the first in a series of discussions on design-related topics.
