DDW-tip: Sectie-C

It's a short trip from downtown, but Sectie-C is worth every detour. At this creative breeding ground you will get a look inside the studios of more than 250 creatives. So hop on one of the Design Rides and take a look!


Daalakkersweg 2-16, Eindhoven

Need a ticket?

Yes, get yours here

How to get there? 

With an ov-bike (twenty minutes from the station), one of the DDW Design Rides, or bus 5 to 't Hofke.

Why do you want to go there? 

You have to put in a little effort to get there, but Sectie-C is worth it, we promise. Here, you'll find more than 100 designers opening up their studios, ateliers, and workshops to the general public for DDW. Moreover, it's a great excuse to take one of the DDW Design Rides. Something you don't want to miss out on!

Before we forget: Sectie-C is known for its atmosphere. Pick up lunch from Juuts or end the day with a beer. 


Our recommendations

  • Reaction Time 2.0: Co-creation arena where artists challenge the perception of time, stimulation & response.
  • Smashing Heritage: Picking up the pieces, new thoughts and ideas are created with the old.
  • Tentacular: What if plants, animals, mountains, rivers, rocks and objects too had their own way of expressing themselves?
  • Atelier Kringloop: you may know them from Insta, but Atelier Kringloop's shop officially opens during DDW.

Sectie-C is in the middle of nowhere, but on your way back to the city (or the other way around), you'll pass the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Here, among other things, you'll get a peek into the world of robot fabrication in architecture. 'Robots that Build' is about how robots translate, adapt, and advance traditional craftsmanship and production techniques. 

Other fun things to do in the area

On your way back to the city center (and to the TU/e) you will almost pass by De Wasvenboerderij; it’s just a small detour. Here, you can enjoy delicious organic food in a beautiful green setting! It feels like being in the countryside. In other words: ideal for refueling before diving back into the design hustle and bustle.
