Piet Hein Eek is a very famous Dutch designer. He is well known for using recycled materials, mostly wood, for creating quite unique pieces.
It was around 4 years ago when I found out about this designer for the first time. It was at Casa Decor in Barcelona. The furniture was very well designed and functional, but most importantly, cool. Then one of my friends bought a set of dining chairs and I can tell you, they are very comfortable and surprisingly light.
Ever since I became aware of his prolific professional career I kept finding pieces designed by Piet everywhere. From furniture to lighting, installations and even a music studio. He is one of those designers whose work is easily recognisable, and that is not something commonly achieved.
While expensive, the detail and work involved are remarkable. Therefore expect to pay for quality; there are a few affordable pieces in the market as well.
