HELLO



“My fascinations find their origin in what makes people question and wonder in daily life. How objects,

surroundings and new impressions gradually become, either conscious or subconscious, a part of our lives.


I love analysing materials, spaces and objects, question critically, research concepts from a broad platform

and converting this into applicable projects.”

I DO

?

The well known ‘Design Academy’ in Eindhoven offered me a stage to explore and develop myself as an independent multi-disciplinary designer. Eager and passionate to bring assignments to a saturated, good end.. In the mean while, realising my -broad- interests all had to be triggered. Therefore, process, concept-research as well as craftmenship and third party production were all of equal importance. Picking new subjects to research, approaching the process each time from a different angle, choosing un- or less familiar materials and techniques with each new project were (and still are!) a distinctive mark of me during the academy years.

A department where design adresses human needs. Real life and well-being is taken as a starting point, covering subjects such as health, nutrition, community, social lives; contemporary topicalities or even futuristics... Often taken all of our senses into account. The concepts are based on a clear analysis, a well-developed and fine-tuned susceptibility and sensitivity and a holistic approach as a key to the overall value of design. These concepts constitute the result of thorough applied and personal research.
