As Margriet Vollenberg, founder and art director of Ventura Projects explained: “In Holland, beauty does not happen by chance. We create in a very deliberate – albeit – free way. The designers we are bringing to New York are on a mission to change the world one design at a time.” A wonderful opportunity of our ICFF 2019 EVENT GUIDE.
