Designer Piet Hein Eek spoke to Dezeen in a live Screentime conversation sponsored by Philips TV & Sound as part of Virtual Design Festival.
The Dutch designer discussed his work with Dezeen’s founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
A Design Academy Eindhoven alum, Eek operates out of a former Philips factory in Eindhoven, which he has renovated into a cultural centre that comprises his studio and workshop, a restaurant, an art gallery, a hairdressers and, from October 2020, a hotel.
Eek described his studio as “his own world; a dynamic centre where creativity, production and sales go hand in hand”.
He is known for a rustic style, often using materials such as wood, metal and ceramics in his products.
