The Netherlands is a land of water. No wonder our present King Willem Alexander specialised in water management. Before ascending the throne as a token of appreciation for his contribution to the sector, he was given Anouk’s First Water Carafe. Recently he paid a visit to the creative ecosystem that is Eindhoven. This time she was invited to talk to him about the Embassy of Water, the platform she created and which premiered at the Dutch Design Week last year. It bridges the gap between policy, industry, design and citizens on the topic. And there’s more to come this year.
