stamppieteindhoven

Most striking feature:

Hundreds of blue shirts. StampPiet Eindhoven is a temporary restaurant during the Dutch Design Week. A project by Piet Bergman and his girlfriend, and fashion designer, Mascha van Wely. She’s responsible for the design of the place and was in big need of blue shirts. So she could use the mail-system of Philips and in a short time she collected 600 (!) shirts. Most of them hang above the tables, but you also see them hanging on a rack, on a big pile of folded around a chair. Piet loves creative food concepts (they also hosted a restaurant at the design fair in Milan and next to StampPiet, he also does Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: DUTCH DESIGN WEEK EINDHOVEN

October 21st, 2013

dutchdesignweekeindhoven

Last Saturday I went to the Dutch Design Week. I had an ambitious plan: I wanted to see just about everything. But there’s so much to discover you actually need more days to see it all. That shows that Eindhoven is brimming throughout the city. As you walk through the locations, you hear Spanish, Czech, Japanese, English and Dutch ofcourse, which indicate how well the international character of the Dutch Design Week Eindhoven is. I’m not gonna tell you a long story today, because I love to show you what caught my eye last Saturday and Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: DUTCH DESIGN WEEK EINDHOVEN

October 22nd, 2012

My Dutch Design Tour

11am last Saturday morning. I was so excited to see the Colour One MINI by Scholten & Baijings at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. I saw the pictures of the space in Milan and unfortunately I couldn’t go there, but now I’ve seen it here in Eindhoven. You know I am a big fan of the brand and what they’ve done with the MINI is amazing. The car is still the same; but all the extra’s got a fantastic design flavor. Like the driver’s seat or the steering wheel (see pictures). Even the Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: RADIO ROYAAL EINDHOVEN

August 13th, 2012

Most striking feature:

You have to like a bit of industrial rawness, but then you will love Radio Royaal in Eindhoven. Strijp-s is a former industrial zone in Eindhoven and this place was a former machine building. So you get that there’s a lot of space upstairs – and you eat directly next to the machines. The interior is Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: DUTCH DESIGN YEAR

November 1st, 2011

Most striking feature:

During the Dutch Design Week the Dutch Design Year store opened it’s doors. It’s located in the Smalle Haven, where you can find a café and Doortje Originals. You can expect work of young design talents next to brands like Montis and Hay. The counter made of wood is amazing, really beautiful. I’ve also spotted bird houses, a lovely, but funny, gift for your loved one (see pic) and beautiful concrete lamps.

TRIED & TESTED: DUTCH DESIGN WEEK

October 30th, 2011

Yesterday I got the chance to visit Eindhoven for the Dutch Design Week. If you’re from abroad, you probably think: Eindhoven? Never heard of. Wel it’s where the Design Academy is located and a lot of international designers graduate. Every year, at the end of October, they host this week full of design. You will find new restaurants (although temporarily), new design and new stores. I took some pictures of things that got my heart pounding a little bit faster.

Most striking feature:

The fitting rooms in the back of the shop. You will immediately walk towards them because they are designed very colorful. You Are Here is a concept store where you can find special labels (not too expensive) in fashion, design and art. And designers from the Design Academy get the opportunity to Read more…

3 reasons to go there:

  1. Look at the interior: that’s a place you want to visit right away don’t you?
  2. If you like to be surprised by new designers (every 4 monhts).
  3. If you like brands like Opening Ceremony, RopaRosa and Studio Ruig.

TRIED & TESTED: PIET HEIN EEK EINDHOVEN

January 17th, 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.
