All Eindhoven women in discussion

Bibliotheek Eindhoven invites "All women in Eindhoven" to meet and engage in discussion. Whilst enjoying a cup of coffee or tea we will be talking to each other based on the Jump Movement Method. In 7 steps we bring women, in pairs, towards a goal, decision or ambition. Jump Movement is surprisingly fun, simple and efficient.

Artist Paul Panhuysen made this model of his street, the Wilgenroosstraat. In the seventies he researched how visual arts could help solve problems in a street. With the participation of residents, he made a design for more than the standard ‘pavement, parking lanes and roadway’. Unfortunately, the plan was never implemented. 

Tablecloth from 1905

Eindhoven Museum recently received a special tablecloth. The rug was made in honour of the engagement party on March 12 1905, of the double engagement of both the eldest son and eldest daughter in the Keunen-Leen family. The table cloth had 80 embroidered signatures by the people that were present. These were mainly people from the Eindhoven elite at the beginning of the twentieth century, such as Eindhoven manufacturer families. The linen cloth is professionally embroidered, possibly by religious who at that time often provided linen with monograms. A beautiful piece of Eindhoven history!


The latest asset to Eindhoven Museum is a bottle from lemonade factory A. van den Bemd. It probably dates from the first half of the thirties. In 1929, A. van den Bemd owned a beer bottling company and a mineral water factory (lemonade factory) at the Hoogstraat 252 in Eindhoven in Gestel, he also was an agent for the Amstel beer brewery. In 1934 the factory moved to the Laagstraat.
