TRIED & TESTED: PIET HEIN EEK EINDHOVEN

January 17, 2011

Most striking feature:

When you enter the Piet Hein Eek zone, you first notice his massive workplace. The place where every single bench, table or chair is produced. Cool to see all the wooden parts lying around – knowing that those parts will soon turn into a great piece of furniture. There is a store (which wasn’t open at sunday) and a restaurant. With of course some Piet Hein Eek furniture, but also some vintage pieces. I loved the wooden plate where they served our sandwich on. I loved the Aesop handsoap in the toilets (it’s about the details isn’t?) and I loved the huge bar in the middle of the restaurant made of tubes.
