Eindhoven-based Yksi was founded 23 years ago by Leonne Cuppen, Kees Heurkens, and Eduard Sweep. Hyperactive as ever, they have during Dutch Design Week 2014 a very comprehensive program of presentations and exhibitions.
Yksi is active on three fronts: Yksi Design, Yksi Expo and Yksi Shop. Yksi Design ensures high-profile furniture and interior designs. Yksi Expo shows changing exhibitions in which design is connected with art, architecture and technology in an inspiring way. Yksi Shop is a fully-fledged Dutch Design lifestyle shop in which furniture, curtain fabrics, carpets, accessories and gift items by well-known Dutch designers and young talent are presented in a special way.
