75 quality dealers from all over Europe will return to Amsterdam on April 10 + 11 for Design Icons 2021, 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.


Due to the COVID-19 measures and the large number of participants that fill most of the available space, the Design Icons concept and floor lay-out need to be revised. We hope to welcome you all on 10 + 11 April 2021. Details about the opening hours and how to get your tickets will follow at a later stage. Subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know.
