75 quality dealers from all over Europe will return to Amsterdam on April 4 + 5 for Design Icons 2020, 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.

Situated on the North shore of ’t IJ, there is a beautiful view to the city center.
