About My background is in Industrial Design Engineering, but in my way of working I have a more artistic approach. It is a challenging and exciting combination. I see myself as someone between two worlds; I donâ€™t really feel like an artist, but I am not a hard-core engineer either. As an Industrial Design student I work often behind computers and produce 3d models and renderings as results. I find it also important to get away from computers from time to time, to make prototypes and art projects.

ACTION PAINTING WAGON MASTER COURSE INDUSTRIAL DESIGN, AALTO ARTS Material
The Action Painting Wagon brings joy to experimental painting
sessions with children by combining painting with music.
The paper is placed on top of a speaker (which is placed in
Second hand stuff
the center of the tabletop). Different musical experiments can be carried out, which will cause the painting to vibrate
accordingly to the intensity of the sound. The final design of
the furniture was developed after a series of creative painting
sessions with children from Espoo, Finland.
Exhibited as part of Design World in Design Museum, Helsinki.

INCREDIBLY CLUMSY TABLEWARE PERSONAL PROJECT Material
Paper is a fascinating material. A wad of paper is made within
3D printed nylon
seconds, giving an incredibly complex and unique shape. With modern software it is still difficult to digitally reconstruct these
Incredibly Clumsy Tableware is 3D printed tableware, trying to capture this contrast. The cutlery is roughly cut from paper
and the plate is simply an wrinkled A4 size paper. The paper

shapes are scanned with a 3D scanner and edited with 3D software.
3286 PENCILS PERSONAL PROJECT WITH PIERRE BUTTIN Material
An installation consisting of 3286 IKEA pencils, trying to
show the beauty of mass production. Industrial processes are often accused of producing similar looking products, whilst
craftsman are making unique products which are supposed
to have some sort of soul. Take a closer look to these mass produced IKEA pencils and you can see that they are all a bit
different. Placed together they create an unexpectedly rich
composition of texture and color. The installation was displayed in gallery Atski, Helsinki
JOHNBOX FINAL BACHELORS PROJECT FOR JOHN’S, TU DELFT Material
Concept for a minimalist music player, capable of playing and
storing only one album. I made this concept for John’s, as my
final bachelors project. John’s is a small Dutch company that
brings John’s Phone to market. John’s phone is a mobile phone
that is only capable of calling.
From more than twenty bachelor projects for John’s, three
concepts were selected by the company. The Johnbox was chosen by John’s as one of the winning designs, with
possibilities for further development.

CRISIS CHAIR PERSONAL PROJECT WITH PIERRE BUTTIN
The Crisis Chair is made by stacking two IKEA Lack tables on
2 Lack tables
top of each other. Its costs of 10 euros makes it a nice pick for people who want to afford original designer furniture while on
The chair was displayed at Stockholm Furniture Fair â€˜12 Photography
alongside expensive designer furniture. Due to financial
difficulties there was no money to finance a stand and the chair was driven around at the fair while we proclaimed our message of recession. The Crisis Chair received positive critique from numerous designers at the fair and was also mentioned on design blogs.
BUNGALOW FURNITURE MASTER COURSE INDUSTRIAL DESIGN ENGINEERING, TU DELFT Material
Starting point for this project was the purchase of an old
smelly bungalow tent on the internet. The assignment was to
Lamp + fitting
use only the material of this tent to design furniture. I wanted
to reuse all the different elements of the tent in unexpected ways to create classic looking furniture with a twist.

LAZY AIRPLANE PERSONAL PROJECT Material
With this project I tried to search for the limits of 3D printing.
3D printed Nylon
Using a wall thickness smaller than 1 mm it is possible to create strong and flexible shapes with the same density
as paper. The airplane can comes ready-made from the 3D
printer and doesnâ€™t have to be folded anymore.
