The anxiously awaited follow-up to Holland Design, Super Holland Design explores new functionality in contemporary Dutch design. Featured designers transform concepts into strong messages, using new techniques and technologies. Dutch designers are inspiring exciting interactions between design and its users, compelling us to rethink the meaning of design itself. They question every aspect of design, creating new concepts, processes and formats, bravely pushing the limits of user participation and the designer's role. Featuring: Catalogtree, De Designpolitie, Experimental Jetset, Studio Kluif, Dennis Koot, Harmen Liemburg, Lust, Thonik, Toko and others. Edited by: Tomoko Sakamoto, Ramon Prat Review: ‘Supremely intelligent and witty. This volume on the highly advanced world of Dutch graphics features a caped superhero on the cover, in case you didn't know that designing denizens of The Netherlands is reinventing, with crusading zeal, the way mere mortals engage their surroundings.’ Metropolitan Home ‘If you thought that instruction manuals and statistical graphics could never be sexy, think again. SHD is focused on the best of Dutch graphic design and gets the cover it fully deserves: it's ironic, witty, stands out from the crowd.’ We Make Money Not Art
