Design capital of the Netherlands

The design roots of Eindhoven go back to the world renowned Philips. The Dutch technology company was founded in Eindhoven in 1891 and established itself through innovative design. Eventually, Holland’s first design academy opened in Eindhoven, which up until now produces many famous designers. The creative buzz can be felt all over Eindhoven: from the artistic installations displayed in the public space, to the design festivals such as Dutch Design Week and Eindhoven Glow held annually to the many local Dutch design stores spread all over the city.
