PIET HEIN EEK
July 22, 2012
While strolling around Eindhoven a couple of weeks ago, we stumbled upon Piet Hein Eek’s workshop and restaurant. Piet Hein Eek is a Dutch designer best known for his scrapwood furniture range that he creates using scraps of reclaimed wood. Each piece of beautiful, timeless and unique furniture is lovingly hand-crafted by Eek and is designed and made to last.
Eek is a great source of inspiration and demonstrates many innovative ways to use scraps of wood to give them a new life and function while enhancing their natural beauty. This is definitely a place to stop by if you are ever in Eindhoven. However, this might very well be Eindhoven’s most well-hidden gem, so do check out a location map prior to hitting the road.

Eek’s scrapwood chair, among his other designs, can all be seen and experienced in his restaurant.
