Out of Order – Studium Generale 2019

No Comments

The past couple of months I have been working on organising the 2019 Studium Generale of Avans Hogeschool and Caradt Research center. Together with the team we set up a wonderful day full of inspiring lectures and workshops.

The 16 lectures and 6 workshops explored the concept of Out of Order. How can art and design influence the way we perceive our daily life and do our daily things? What happens if things do not work right or differently than we are used to? What happens if we shuffle thing around in ways we would not expect?

As a Master Graduate of Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology, I got to engrave my name in the TU/e alumni walk. Leaving your name in a place you learned so much and made so many good memories can only be described as an honor and is a wonderful way of commemorating my time there.

During the TU/e Technology week, I got the opportunity to highlight the importance of sufficient hydration in daily life. The response was very activating and inspirational.

Industrial Design – End of the Year Trip

Study trip 2017|California

During this summer vacation, I joined our study Association “Lucid” on a study trip to California. During our trip, we visited design studios like Astro Studios, Landor, O+A and RKS Design. We also visited the Academy of Art of San Francisco. In between our activities, we did a lot of sight seeing and group activities.

Our time in California went by like a dream. I had the most amazing time studying, playing and exploring with my fellow students.
