Microlab Hall

Microlab Hall is located on the edge of the creative district of Strijp-S. An unmissable building that bears its name prominently on the facade. Today this building is mainly used by creative makers as a place to collaborate, but in the 1970s, Philips still produced the well-known Matchline TVs here. The building has more than 3,000 m2 and is one of the few vacant Philips factory buildings on Strijp-S.

Various projects and expos

Microlab Hall has been one of DDW's locations since 2021 and replaces the VEEM building as a large exhibition space. You will find individual projects and collections as well as group exhibitions here.

Microlab Hall is only accessible with a DDW ticket.
