Plug in city, a creative community established in a city inmotion.Temporarily based in the middle of Strijp-s in Eindhoven, thiscommunity of designers, architects, artists and other professionals have forged their expertise in circular economy to build a space in the middle of Strijp- S that functions as a creative living lab, workshop, event space and culturalcenter.
2018 brought about an opportunity for us to re-develop andupgrade this project into what we call “Plug-in-City 2.0”. We worked on a new design that emphasizes the vision of PiC even more: using co-creation formaking this space an inspiring creative melting pot in Eindhoven. Through the use of containers, old windows, second-hand or borrowed materials, this small “city” is built entirely on the principles of Circular Economy – everything we have has been used, re-used and can be easily dismantled.
At Plug-in-City we design furniture, sculpt wood, curve neonlights, draw buildings and we build machines. We question social design and we constantly explore the concept of circular economy.
