VPRO Medialab works as an outpost of the VPRO from Strijp-S in Eindhoven, carrying out research into the future of storytelling.

Eindhoven? Yes, VPRO Medialab can be found at Strijp-S in Eindhoven. Outside the Hilversum Media Campus and at the heart of a place where innovation, creativity, design and technology flourish. Our office is in the NatLab, the former Philips Laboratory and now the Eindhoven film house. It is a place that means a great deal to innovation in technology and media: this is where Philips carried out sound experiments, where the first TV broadcasts in the Netherlands came from, where Albert Einstein once visited and where the CD was invented. 

Visitor’s address

Our office is in the building of film house NatLab. If you stand in front of the building you will see stairs that lead to the Daan Roosegaarde artwork Crystal in the left wing. This is where you will find our front door, with a doorbell to the right. Google Maps can provide you with a full route description.
