LAMP

JOREN VAN LOON

This lamp is constructed with polypropylene. Using the opportunities of the material gave this result. I’ve used some techniques of origami to gain the right form. By using this pattern, the lamp can be transported in a compact way.

AIR FRESHENER JOREN VAN LOON

The goal of this assignment was to redesign an ­existing product to a more ecological version. We had to strip down the existing air freshener to its ­ essentials and implement characteristics of ­another brand. For this design the product was the Ambi Pur Car and the chosen brand was BMW.

CAULK GUN

JOREN VAN LOON - SAM SMEDTS - LAURENS VAN GLABBEEK

The caulk gun is redesigned with a focus on ergonomics. The handle fits better to the hand and there is less pressure needed in this design. A second zone for the other hand was created on the front of the gun to improve the precision of your work. It had to fit in a series of hand tools which was created with Sam Smedts & Laurens Van Glabbeek.

WEEDER

JOREN VAN LOON - KATRIEN VERLAET - LAURENS VAN GLABBEEK

The assignment was to redesign a given weeder. This is a vehicle for farmers to manually remove weeds. The focus of the redesign was to improve the technical and ergonomical aspects of the product. A lot of verifications were needed to accomplish this goal.

WORD CATCHER

JOREN VAN LOON - LAURENS VAN GLABBEEK

A word catcher is a device that processes words to a spoken story or poetry in 24h. The device had to illustrate the process in a subtle manner. The main focus in this assignment were the controls of the product. The experience of using the product was the most important.

LES ETALAGES

In my spare time I was involved in the ideation of the start-up les étalages, founded by my sister. It is a website where you can make your own shopping street with your favourite webshops and discover new webshops. For this website I did some graphic work as well and created the logo.

LETTUCE SHARE

JOREN VAN LOON - SAM SMEDTS - ANDRES VANHOOYDONCK

Lettuce share is a product service system to help people with growing vegetables in the city. This is guided by an app and users can connect with fellow gardeners in their neighbourhood to get even more help. The sensors measure all the information of your vegetables to make you aware of any actions needed.

TECHNOPOLIS - STRATEGIC JOREN VAN LOON

For the course strategic design we had to develop an innovation strategy for Technopolis. Technopolis is a science museum in Mechelen with a desire to innovate but hasn’t achieved this in the last couple of years. As a team we developed three innovation stategies from which the interactive website was my accomplishment. This website has the goal to inspire kids to make interesting objects. Kids can become real makers.
