Besides the fun of seeing the creation of the winning 101 characters cabinets, it was moreover a feast for me to walk around in the workplace at Piet Hein Eek.

To discover the (fun) details in every corner of the huge workplace and the pleasure to photograph in this wood heaven. It's so light in this former Philips factory and it was really cool to get a guide tour by the master himself. Piet Hein Eek told about the interesting story of his career and the development of his designs. For instance; he doesn't like to waste material and he never throws away anything and reuses wherever possible.

What particularly appealed to me was, how important it is to him, to create a fine workplace and make the conditions as pleasant as possible. As a fan of the first hour, it was an honor to get a chance to take a closer look in his workplace.

Well a fine place it certainly is.
