While most of us simply switch it on or off to read a book or go to bed, the Dutch are working tirelessly to exploit photons, the particles of light that hold the key to the future of technology.

Canvas bags filled with organic muesli procured from Naturalia, impeccably dressed children swaddled in high-end strollers, clusters of bicycles, and a collective preoccupation with brunch: these are some of the distinguishing characteristics of the social group known as bobos.
