The Restaurant of Piet Hein Eek is filled with the designer’s own pieces, including his signature recycled wood furniture finished with a high gloss varnish. All pieces are unique and made from waste diverted into interior design, like the colourful bar made from old steel pipes. The “Old lampshade-lamp” is a collection of mix-match lights that as a collection create an astonishing chandelier feature.
Eek’s piled up recycled wooden stools below some yummy Garden Nasturtium, together with a found church chandelier, are some of the pieces that fill this brilliant space. The walls and floors were rescued from another of Philips‘ enormous warehouse buildings and now serve as a venue for local cultural events. A long table topped by “Hanging Wire Lamp in Tie Silk” is reserved for large groups.
