The W-hall (Mechanical Engineering hall) of the former Eindhoven Technical College formed part of the first generation of buildings on the campus. The building was constructed in the second half of the 1950s, after a design by architects Van Embden and Choisy.
Ector Hoogstad Architecten has transformed the historic W-hall, one of the oldest buildings on the site, into a modern, new main building accommodating the university library, lecture halls, catering facilities, service desks, offices and lots of space to study.
Dynamobel has contributed to this project with an adaptation of it famous Dis chair. Ector Hoogstad Architecten defined the chair with several variations on the original design, which included new arms with height adjustment and structure and the rear of the backrest in a special yellow.
800 chairs have been installed in the library area.
