Poetic Functionalism

Piet Hein Eek is not your typical designer. He listens to classical music, hates to travel, doesn’t dress in black, reads books on philosophy and lives and works in a small suburban town. His work is genuinely thoughtful and provocative. The handmade processes he employs and the use of recycled wood and metals  challenges the categories of modern design--blurring the lines between art, design, craft, and industrial production.
