Credo 01

Aim high

I think that good design is always created by many talented people sharing their ideas openly and by that it can have a big impact in our daily life. I know that design is not the solution for everything, but it offers the possibility to see things, needs, and problems from a different point of view.

Designing and creating new ideas and concepts is a beautiful way to signify a special expression.

dubai 2035 An extraordinary city

Page 12

Dubai is a fast growing and open minded city. New inventions and a pioneer spirit are only a few attributes of this new mega city. Because of these aspects as well as the new and modern infrastructure is Dubai the perfect setting for my concept Audi WISE - Shared Luxury.



Research Four major trends

Page 14

After an extensive research and analysing the future trend map of the company ‘ZUKUNFTSINSTITUT’ I focused on four major trends

Dubai 2035

Sharing on demand

Autonomous driving

Artificial intelligence

The concept The story behind

Through the big impact of the main trends I was able to create the use case and define the usability.

On demand Fleet

Connectivity Through smart devices

Long distance travel w.i.g.e.

Attraction Compare red buses London

Through desert and over water - Gliding effect

Perfect traffic stream Wise - lanes

Expanding to younger target groups Current target group (45+) - shifting to younger one

By using emotional and rational needs of the target group we were able to define our purchase drivers and core elements.

Creating a thin and lightweight dashboard, to get a better overview for parking.

Use your own mobile devices Smartphone or tablet

By using a smartphone or a tablet, we keep the car more affordable and were able to use the “second devices� as speedometer or navigation system.

Customisable Parts (3d print)

Open cover and put in your tablet.

Rail system and foldable seats Space is everything

By using a horizontal rail system instead of a vertical one, combined with our foldable seats, you get the option to create more space than in the current T-model.

The concept Year 2066

By the big impact of the global change the mankind lives in autarkic cities. The roads in the outlands are badly damaged. Everybody gets wet-nursed by robots and is bored to death by the ‘everyday same procedure’.

Emotions and needs

Across these facts the need for freedom, emotion and explorer passion gets stronger and stronger.

Myray 05 What is innovation? Within one week workshop, with our guest lecturer Dr. Gerald Steiner from Harvard University, we found out new ways to research scenarios that showed us problems, needs, and wishes of today‘s society. He pointed out that innovation consists not only of one factor - it‘s necessary to combine and merge relevant factors and stakeholders. Briefing: Our task was to create an innovative concept of a household product which interacts with someone or something in the year 2025.

Autonomic pool cleaner

Team-project with Christina Wolf Semester project 2013 (4 months)

Today’s problems Pool Robots

Conventional pool cleaning systems are clunky, costly in terms of time, and don‘t fit into the optical image of a swimming pool.

The solution

The latest innovation in pool cleaning systems.

Myray Sustainable Autonomic Beautiful Smart

Moods & inspiration Beauty, nature, and smooth objects

Bionic, fading edge, smooth surface.

Page 84

The natural shape as well as the smooth movements of rays served as an inspiration and highly influenced the design of the Myray system.

Myray works as an autonomous system, which stays in the pool permanently.

surface cleaning and water filtering.

disconnection the filter is full - you get a message.

you get the signal to clean the filter.

take out filter and clean it.

Solar charger - myray rests on the surface of the water.

after cleaning, put the filter back into the water - it automatically reattaches itself.

Myray “sleeps”, if everything is perfecly clean.

Parts and function Technical aspects

Myray is a smart and IT-driven cleaning-system which cleans all pool areas and filters water in variable depths - it avoids pollution of the swimming pool.

Team-project with Constantin Mรถdl Semester project 2015 - duration: 4 months.

Setting trends The Requirements

There are a lot of different vehicles and concepts in the area between bicycle and car, but they don’t find any acceptance. So our first question was why? As a resolution we found out, that the image of this type of vehicle is really bad. To counter the poor image, we define our requirements through strong attributes like: trendsetter, leader and vanguard.


Page 96

Trendsetter essentials



one group to catch them all Sinus Milieus - Performer

Multi-optional // efficiency oriented // performance elite // global-ecological thinking // stylistic avant garde If we are able to reach the group of performer, we are able to reach the whole majority.

Performer / lead user

Early adopter


the lead user - greenovator Who is the person?

Sustainability is one of the most influential topics of today’s society. I the 80s it was only a marginal group, today nearly everybody matters to this topic
