We are very proud to announce Skyne opened a brand new office space in the technology and design capital of the Netherlands: Eindhoven!
Eindhoven lies in the technological heart of the Netherlands, also known as Brainport. It has a close proximity to Amsterdam (Airport) and Rotterdam (Seaport). South East Brabant is home to many companies of international stature, such as Philips, DAF Trucks, ASML, NXP, Brabantia, and Vlisco. The city of Eindhoven is best known for its affiliation to Phillips, but this city of more than 225,000 has recently been attracting creatives of all types. With excellent location, infrastructure, pedestrian and bicycle friendly commuting, and focus on high tech and innovation, Eindhoven is an excellent choice for the ambitious minds. Internationally known events run year-round, for instance Dutch Technology Week in May, Dutch Design Week in October, and Glow Art Festival in November.
The city’s art-scene exploration should start at the Strijp-s, an impressive complex of several buildings showcasing the work of Eindhoven’s lead artists, designers, engineers, and musicians. Eindhoven’s High Tech Campus, also known as ‘the smartest square kilometer in Europe’, is home to several restaurant concepts and shops and serves as community’s resource for fellow entrepreneurs. In the field of education, too, Eindhoven is a leading player with TU/e, Fontys University of Applied Sciences and the Design Academy. Not coincidentally the letters TDK belong to the city: technology, design and knowledge are the focal points of Eindhoven. T and D as right and left brain, K as a connecting factor.
The old World Trade Centre of Eindhoven brings those bright minds together in BounceSpace: a creative, slightly rebellious and community-based workspace housing talented and ambitious freelancers, startups and corporates. Skyne joined the divers network of BounceSpace together with companies as Uber, Dorel Juvenile, and Salveo Pharma. We are really enjoying the buzzing atmosphere, the amazing glass roof, the (winning) table tennis challenges, great and energetic members, and of course the delicious food of I Am One Kitchen.
Feel free to drop by when you’re around. You can find us on the very first floor of the big black glass cube on Bogert 1.
We had a very warm welcome at BounceSpace by these two wonderful guys playing piano! (We wish we had…)
“Hoera!” Doors are open! (Stay tuned for our brand new interior…)
