In 1891, Gerard Philips started the production of light bulbs at the Emmasingel. Today, 127 years later, one of the world's leading design academies, Design Academy Eindhoven, is located across the street. On the other side of Victoriapark you will find TAC (Temporary Art Centre), a breeding ground for cultural innovation with over seventy workshops and studios.
Praised by leading international media, such as Dezeen, ELLE Decor and The New York Times: Design Academy Eindhoven can rightfully call itself one of the best design academies in the world. Master students focus on the complex social, economic and cultural issues of tomorrow, the final result of which can be seen annually during the Dutch Design Week highlight: the Graduation Show.
