Design, art and fashion 
OBJECT Rotterdam shows limited editions and unique pieces on the crossover of design, art and fashion. The fair presents work by more than sixty national and international, established and upcoming designers, from different design disciplines and in a wide variety of materials. For three days, OBJECT Rotterdam opens its doors for collectors, professionals and other design lovers.

Jazz performances turn the clock back to old times
Besides a great dose of design, OBJECT Rotterdam also offers visitors a jazz program. In style with the history of the SS Rotterdam, during the fair jazz performances will take place in the attractive La Fontaine room, the Captain’s Lounge and the Ocean bar.

Sailing to the fair
SS Rotterdam is the ‘Grande Dame’ of the port of Rotterdam, located on the head of Katendrecht. During OBJECT Rotterdam a special shuttle boat brings visitors from the Wilhelminapier to the ship. The beautiful yacht the Thalassa sails visitors directly from the Waternetsteiger to the SS Rotterdam for five euros. A great experience in itself. After a 30-minute cruise visitors directly board the fair at the spectacular backside of the famous ship.
