Piet Hein Eek

One of a Kind byBorre Quilt


When Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek—who is fond of using scrap material in his works—came across a former tie factory in Milan, he discovered a large trove of unused silk necktie fabrics. In a collaboration with textile designer Borre Akkersdijk, he’s given the material a second life: as one of a kind silk quilts that boast stimulating patterns and colors.
