About the Hidden Gems of DDW
Each year we make a selection of ten Hidden Gems of DDW: upcoming designers and inspiring projects that can be found on special locations throughout Eindhoven. Places you normally wouldn’t go to. During DDW you can. Under the guidance of an expert guide, you will get a peek behind the scenes of a new batch of outstanding designers.

About the bike tour
During a meet and greet on location, the designers share the background stories of their work and you can see and hear how that work has been accomplished. In between, the guide will tell you all about the design world of Eindhoven and will take you to other special places.

Two cycling routes (West tour and East tour)
You can choose from two routes. For both the starting point is near the station. One day we cycle westwards from Eindhoven city center towards Strijp-S and the site of Piet Hein Eek. The other day, the cycling tour goes east where we meet upcoming designers on Design Perron and the NRE area (and more). The guide takes you back to the end point on the NRE site, where the bicycles are returned and where there is the extra option for a Pasta meal at the Cyklist (book in advance via Eventbrite)
