At Piet Hein Eek

Piet Hein Eek is another place you should visit when in Eindhoven. Piet Hein Eek designs and manufactures furniture and other things, most famous of which are his scrapwood objects. Not all of his designs are my style, but I can really appreciate his way of working, which is about combining uncommon materials and also uncommon, but simple methods of working and about getting the maximum out of the circumstances. Close to Strijp-S there is an entire Piet Hein Eek compound, located in and around two old industrial buildings, where you can find a workshop, showroom, shop, restaurant and more. A very inspiring place with a great, no-nonsense atmosphere. Plus point are their absolutely delicious cakes and other snacks. Definitely worth a visit if you're in town!!
