Uit de buurtfabriek

What makes us the most social furniture factory in Eindhoven?

Uit de Buurtfabriek

Uit de Buurtfabriek is the most social furniture factory in Eindhoven. Since 2016, we have been creating a supportive work environment where people with a distance to the labor market can be productive and where they can learn and grow. It is a place where people are guided in a unique, creative, and pleasant way in taking new steps in their lives.

A part of history

In Doornakkers (a neighborhood in Eindhoven), the demand arose for a local maker's place for meaningful work. We found it in a garage on Rustenburgstraat. When the municipality gave this space a new destination, we moved to Vestdijk. In the years that followed, we made a trip through Eindhoven. In total, we moved seven times to eventually return to the Eindhoven neighborhood where it all started: Doornakkers.

3 steps to custom-made projects with social impact: from wish to design to creation

1
Wish

We map out the customer's wishes as clearly as possible and think along about the various options for making the project a success. Think of advice in furnishing, design, and interactive elements.

2
Design

If the wish is clear, we focus on the design. We shape the project from the first sketch to a fully developed 3D drawing. All this, of course, is in close consultation with the customer.

3
Creation

We order the materials we need for the job. The team then sets to work in our workshop with the greatest care. Based on the technical drawings, we produce and deliver the end product before the agreed deadline.
