Piet Hein Eek
Looking back at Dutch Design Week 2019, today Piet Hein Eek
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.
