When it comes to unorthodox, yet hugely successful ways of producing and distributing cutting-edge furniture and product designs, look no further than a former Philips ceramic factory in Eindhoven.
Here, Dutch design star Piet Hein Eek has brought a vision into being, a vision that encompasses social responsibility, efficiency, and sustainability to everyone's advantage: his own, as well as that of his business partners, employees, and clients. Graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven and creating a pioneering cupboard made from scrap wood as early as 1990, the equally humorous, relaxed, yet hard-working Eek is surely at his creative peak these days. Learn all about his unique creative design universe in Gestalten.tv's latest interview feature.
