PIET HEIN EEK

PIET HEIN EEK

Piet Hein Eek is usually pictured alongside the scrapwood furniture that made him famous throughout the world. At X BANK we show his sensitive side, that of eyewear and watches. He makes exceptional products by working with simplicity. The spectacles and sunglasses frames use only two lines for the top and bottom, clasping the arms in between. We love the little twist from horizontal at the joint to vertical at the ears. The tube watch started from a steel tube and an extruded ring as the clocks face. So obvious that you would think it already exists. But it doesn’t. This is your chance; these are the only Piet Hein Eek designs you can carry home without a heavy goods vehicle.
