design icons amsterdam is the only trade show in the netherlands dedicated to original 20th century furniture design. for the 2015 edition, sixty quality dealers from all over europe will return on february 7, bringing their finest vintage 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 projects, with eames next to mies van der rohe and from italian-chic to raw industrials.

the event takes place annually in the venue of de overkant. this former marine engine factory has been restored into a location for special occasions. situated on the north shore of  IJ, the industrial atmosphere of the facility offers views to the city center.

designboom has received this project from our ‘DIY submissions‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their own work for publication. see more project submissions from our readers here.

  • I like the last photo: ‘overkant’ is dutch for ‘other side’ or ‘across’.

    I’ll definitely try and visit, I live less than 50km from there…
