Music Hall Eindhoven

Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe as Designers

In the middle of Eindhoven now stands the absolute music centre of the future, a place where lighting, design and technology are integrated innovatively, without it becoming merely a high-tech building.


Niels van Eijk and Miriam van der Lubbe of Geldrop designed both the interior and the exterior around the central idea of the Concert Hall as a meeting place. Together with Philips Ambient Experience Design, Hypsos and Rapenburg Plaza, the duo produced an exceptional composition of light, image and specially developed technology. Take for example the way concert-goers are led intuitively from foyer to concert hall by way of subtle lighting signs which move from a high-tech wall and over the ceiling.


Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe designed every detail especially for this project, from the enormous glass façade to the foyers and furniture, from the working wear to the crockery.


The most remarkable change is to the main entrance of the new Concert Hall. This consists of a forwardleaning glass façade, 25 meters wide and 13 meters high. Behind it is a cultural city-foyer where people are welcome throughout the day for a cup of coffee, and to listen to, and buy music. The city-foyer will be fitted with an ambient wall, several meters long, consisting of thousands of led lights, on which films, works of art and concerts will be projected. Visual artist Gerard Hadders realised the content of this living wall. Visitors can listen to their favourite music in ‘listening chairs’ with integrated audio systems, designed specially by Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe. They also designed multi-functional furniture for the foyers, and special duo-chairs with an innovative lighting system.


The redesign was made possible due in part to a contribution from the European Fund for Regional Development within the framework of OP-Zuid and contributions from the SRE Regional Fund, Brainport Development, Province Noord-Brabant and Gemeente Eindhoven.
