I am a curious and visual designer with an interest in designing artefacts that change the relation we have with the world.
As a young boy, I built magic tricks with my grandfather, to perform with at school. I learned how objects, in this case a magic trick, could, for a brief moment, take people to a world were impossible things were possible. Now, through design, I also try to change the users perception of the world. During my studies at Industrial Design, I have learned how the technology mediates between human and the world and how I can create technology taking the values of multiple stakeholders into account. In my future designs, I continuously want to ask myself the question: How can I create designs that change your way of looking at and behaving in the world?

We are witnessing a number of changes that may irrevocably change the planet’s complex dynamic system.
These changes include a decline in global governance, and the development of technologies that can dramatically transform the social fabric. As designers, we need to better understand how the relation between human and world is influenced, so we can design technologies that transform the social fabric, taking the values that we want into account. I believe that, to find out how technology mediates between human and world, we need to be able to experience the technology, and consecutively critically analyse our experience.
Here is an impression of the kind of work I do, as well as the clients I have worked for.
