    Introduction by Mihkel Masso.

    Design Night Festival presents: A fascinating documentary about Piet Zwart (1885-1977), an idiosyncratic and stubborn designer, who lived for innovation and prepared the way for the international success that is now known as Dutch Design. Zwart worked as an interior and industrial designer, commercial typographer, photographer, critic and lecturer, playing a key role in defining the design climate in the Netherlands in the 20th century. He is especially known for designing the famous ‘Piet Zwart’ kitchen: a kitchen that could be easily produced and consisted of standardized elements. This documentary enters the mind of the artist Piet Zwart with his almost obsessive urge to innovate.
