Rough kids furniture - Piet Hein Eek


Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek is already best known for his furniture. He graduated in 1990 from the Design Academy in Eindhoven, and his graduation project, a cupboard of reclaimed scrap wood, earned him international recognition. In that time, it was an amaizing concept, not to have a  ‘perfect’ piece of furniture, but create something opposite - imperfectly beautifull . Every single piece of furniture is a one-of-a-kind creation . Piet Hein Eek recently moved his production, office, shop and showrooms into former Philips factory buildings. I  just love this space, and the work they are doing. I want to shere some photos with you …
