New Collection and Presentation

Sat 19 Oct - Sat 26 Oct at Piet Hein Eek | Strijp T+R

During the Dutch Design Week 2019 we will present, as always, our new collection in our shop and showroom. There will be a new presentation in the Wonderroom Gallery. Throughout the building designer exhibitions will be organized.

In 2010 Piet Hein Eek moved his business from Geldrop to Eindhoven, to a former Philips factory. The activities, that already covered the whole process from concept to consumer, were further expanded. This has created a world in which art, culture, handicrafts, gastronomy and much more merge together. The road that was intuitively taken twenty years ago and in which a generalist approach was the guiding principle, has become a crossroads where a world comes together. A world of relationships and connections and of possibilities and impossibilities. Eek created his own world and an important cultural hub in the city of Eindhoven, at times where such initiatives are scarce or have difficulty with keeping their heads above water.

Piet Hein Eek

In 1990 Piet Hein Eek graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven. He openend his first company in Geldrop in 1992. For Eek it is important to have influence on the whole process - from drawing to final product. This proved to be an exceptional way of producing that became recognized internationally as it was and is still rare that furniture is designed and produced under the same roof. Each design of Eek is designed with the material, the fabrication technique and the craft as main focus.
