Holst Centre is a research center in Eindhoven, the Netherlands where researchers work on technologies that will impact daily life in the near future. These technologies enable new products such as plastic solar cells, OLED lighting, rollable displays and wireless sensors for health and wellness monitoring. But who are the people behind these ideas? What does their working day look like? In May 2012, I had the opportunity to photograph the people at Holst Centre for several days. The result is this book, which gives a glimpse into the working environment of researchers at Holst Centre.
