The story of the Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek is an extraordinary one.
The designer was born in Holland in 1967. Later, it was his 1990 Design Academy Eindhoven graduation project, Scrapwood Creations, that had the design industry first take notice of his work.
In 2007 he bought 600 cubic metres of salvaged beams and a whole slev of doors. With this materials he produced and still is producing massive and imposing furniture. He perfectly combines natural materials with modern aspects of design. Using all these beams Piet Hein Eek produces not only furniture like his waste beam cabinet or his chunky shiny white beam armchair, but also the longest table in the world in occasion of the Parade Theatre Festival in New York.
