Microlab Hall

Microlab Hall is located on the edge of the creative district of Strijp-S, hiding in plain sight: the building’s name is prominently displayed on the facade. Today this building is mainly used by creative makers as a place to collaborate, but in the 1970s, Philips produced the famous Matchline TVs here. The building covers more than 3,000 m2 and is one of the few Philips factory buildings on Strijp-S which has not yet been given a new permanent use.

Various projects and expos

Microlab Hall has been one of DDW's own locations since 2021. You will find individual projects and collections as well as group exhibitions here.

Microlab Hall is only accessible with a DDW ticket.
