His furniture from scrap wood has become a staple in design. Yet apart from being an industrial designer, Eek is above all else an entrepreneur. On Strijp R in Eindhoven, he has built a world of his own.

Vietnam at its best
For the Piet Hein Eek vase FairForward L Crane, Fair Trade Original approached Piet Hein Eek to collaborate with Vietnamese potters. For generations, these artisans have been using the same methods of painting ceramics. Thanks to this partnership, Vietnam's traditional colours and motifs have been given a vibrant new lease of life. The FairForward vase L Crane is a true designer vase that goes surprisingly well in a Western interior. With or without a flower arrangement!
Fairtrade Dutch Design
FairForward designs fair trade gifts and home accessories under the Fair Trade Original label. An assurance that the Piet Hein Eek vase is produced fairly and that the Vietnamese potters can actually make a living from their work. So we are investing in a sustainable future!
Combination of tradition & Eek
Piet Hein Eek is possibly best known for his scrap wood furniture. Piet Hein takes what the average Dutch person would consider rubbish, and transforms it into a stylish design piece. This time, for the FairForward vase, Eek took up the challenge of working with ancient traditions. The Vietnamese enamel painters were asked to give their traditional prints a modern twist. What happened? The original colours and motifs that we recognize as Vietnamese go well together with modern shapes. Even though the FairForward design vase L Crane is contemporary, the historical patterns and techniques remain. The Piet Hein Eek ceramic vase FairForward is 34 cm high and has a 24 cm diameter. The white vase is printed with a traditional pattern of black cranes (the symbol of a long and happy life). These bulb-shaped vases from Piet Hein are also available with a Vietnamese blueprint.
