MillerGoodman @ Piet Hein Eek, Dutch Design Week 2012

When Piet Hein Eek called us up earlier this year to invite us to show in his Factory on the outskirts of Eindhoven nothing could prepare us for the scale of his operation.  His 10,000sq metre factory started out as a Philips manufacturing plant.  Town planners had decided to flatten it to develop a residential area but Piet managed to raise the finances to buy the site. After two years of incessant work Piet and his team have realised almost the impossible.  The site includes a showroom, gallery space restaurant, factory, shop, office space for his team and spaces for other artisans to rent. We were made to feel part of the family and are happy to be exhibiting there as part of Dutch Design Week. Pop along if you can. 20th-28th October
