Kazerne – Home of Design

Kazerne Foundation creates a vibrant, welcoming and inspiring hospitality environment, where everyone can experience 24/7 how design adds value to the world we live in. To designers Kazerne offers an international stepping-stone; a welcoming and committed podium that wants to explore the ‘zeitgeist’ through exhibitions, connecting- and in-depth activities. As a meeting place for design professionals, their stakeholders, and the public, Kazerne creates new opportunities, stimulates discovery and challenges to contemplate. In this way, Kazerne functions as an essential link in Eindhoven's rich infrastructure for design, technology and knowledge, which is echoed far beyond the region.
