Vij5 at Design District 2019
From 5-7 June Vij5 was present during the Design District fair in the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam (NL).
This year again, we showed a number of previews of new products with work by Max Lipsey, Studio Thier & van Daalen and Floris Hovers!
Design District is an event for interior designers, architects, designers, project designers, stylists, retailers and other interior professionals. At Design District you will find over 200 top brands that showcase their newest and best products. Varying from young designers and new labels to well-known brands. You will find furniture, lighting, sanitary, tiles, flooring, acoustic panels, fabrics and other materials. The stands are small, so only the newest products are shown. That makes Design District an uncluttered trade fair: Within only one day you will be up to date about what’s happening in interior design.
This year Design District once again took place at the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam. The Van Nelle Fabriek started as a flagship of industrial Dutch architecture. The first daylight factory in Europe. With its steel and glass facade and work floor bathed in natural light, the building was designed to energise. In 2002, the structure was renovated and transformed into a sustainable building. Rotterdam’s national design icon was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2014.
This year the Vij5 stand was again to be found between the characteristic blue racks of the 'Distribution Center' of the Van Nelle Fabriek.
