Piet Hein Eek.

I recently watched a documentary on Piet Hein Eek a dutch designer whom I have followed for many years.
Hein Eek is a designer-manufacturer whom I admire both for his designs and for his business model, his style is widely copied especially by the green movement.
The interview also shed light on his motivation which portrayed a man who is happy in his work and direction with a strong work ethic and a real belief in his product, as well as an obsession with time.
Based in Geldrop in the Netherlands he mass produces all his own designs, keeping complete control of the whole process of his product and the production environment.
Purchasing an Hien Eek product you really purchase a part of the man, and his philosophy.
