Uit de Buurtfabriek

All week in Yksi by Bron van Doen
This event is open for the public.

Every year Uit de Buurtfabriek is growing in Eindhoven. In 2018 we have made custom furniture for many people in the city, added new social design products to Uit de Buurtfabriek's furniture collection, and our volunteers are becoming stronger. While we continue to provide a social working environment for people with barriers to employment, we proudly present a selection of new work in Dutch Design Week.

We are presenting a selection of Uit de Buurtfabriek furniture, including a new chair design made from reclaimed wood and textile waste. Learn about the Weggeefkast De Bergen (translated 'giving closet on a path in Bergen') at our exhibition, and visit the outdoor closet yourself on a tiny path between Prins Hendrikstraat and Heilige Geeststraat, right in the centre of Eindhoven. Visit us in Yksi to have a look at our line of socially produced products, and learn about how we are working and growing as a social business.

Uit de Buurfabriek Foundation

Uit de Buurfabriek (translated 'from the neighbourhood factory') is a workplace where people with distance to the labour market, designers and makers work together to make beautiful custom furniture for companies, social organizations and individuals in Eindhoven. We facilitate the co-creation of unique quality furniture in Eindhoven within a social working environment.
