As a child, I always wanted to find out how things work: by tinkering, looking at devices and opening them up, often damaging them and – when getting older – repairing them.
After graduating at the Design Academy in Eindhoven in 1993 I started designing and developing in-store and display materials. First in The Netherlands and from 1999 also in Denmark. The strong desire to also do product design & development was the incentive to start on my own in 2007.
The combination of in-store and product design in my work is unique and helps me reinventing and being creative. With in-store design, the objects are large and have a more architectural design language, which I combine with the aesthetics and attention for details in product design.
Working with customers both in Denmark and the Netherlands enriches my work. Both cultures are a source of inspiration and complement each other. I learn from the influence of trends and international developments in both countries, which is visible in my work.
For many years I have had a special interest, which I now recognize i a global design trend, i.e. “circular design” and “circular economy”: to design products in a way that they can be reused or recycled .
This fits seamlessly with one of my big hobbies: I collect and repair old items, instead of buying new things.
I am always conscious of the products and materials that I design and use.
YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
CO2 REDUCTION 2030
To create new innovations, we need to understand the needs of the customer, how you feel and think.
Asking the WHY and HOW questions.
After the empathising phase we define the needs and challenges.
By using the knowledge from the first two phases we start creating new ideas and concepts, thinking “outside the box”, looking for alternative ways and innovative solutions. Hereby creating a broad range of possible solutions.
Choosing a solution, which fits the challenges the best. Prototyping is a experimental phase to investigate if the ideas work.
Making the last changes the final idea by implementing the experiences found in prototyping. This can involve iterating, redefine, redesign.
