Least favorite thing about Eindhoven: The most horrible piece in Eindhoven, in Meijer’s eyes, stands in front of Usine, a restaurant in the former Philips lamp factory. It’s an information screen in the shape of a droplet. “I really don’t understand why the local government would grant permission for something like this. The intention was probably to combine design and technology in one object, but this is just too much of everything. Beside that, it totally overpowers the bronze statue of a girl with a light bulb which reflects the history of the city.”
