75 quality dealers from all over Europe will return to Amsterdam on April 1 + 2 for Design Icons 2023, bringing their finest vintage design pieces from the 1930s - 1980s. A diversity of interior objects will be offered for sale to both professionals and broad public: from well-known classics to anonymous designs, with Eames next to Mies van der Rohe and from Italian-chic to raw industrials.

Design Icons Amsterdam takes place annually in the beautiful venue of De Kromhouthal. This former marine engine factory has been restored into a charming event location. Situated on the North shore of ’t IJ, there is a beautiful view to the city center. The industrial atmosphere of De Kromhouthal is the ideal setting to showcase the design icons of the past century.

For collectors, professionals and anyone else who likes to be first: Design Icons starts off with a preview during stand build-up on Saturday at 12:00. Highlights will be present throughout the weekend, as dealers will often re-stock their stands, revealing new pieces of their collections. Tip: Sunday late afternoon is the best time for some last chance negotiations, ask for a best price for that lovely piece that didn’t fit your budget.

Tickets are available online only.
