From the mid-1920s to 1960 Dutch designer Louis Kalff established the advertising and design section of Philips. Kalff also designed the ‘Evoluon’ conference centre / museum of Eindhoven. This building is unique due to its futuristic sixties design, also resembling a flying saucer. Nowadays, some Kalff lighting designs are quite hard to find and being collected all over the world.
