Collaboratory Experimental Logo

Experimentations in creating a logo, amongst others, grown from bacteria for the collaborative The Collaboratory. The mission of The Collaboratory is to solve big questions of organisations and society in an experimental way by providing a safe “playground” in which solutions can be developed. This philosophy would be exemplified with the free growth of bacteria in an...

Concrete Bookends

I love the look and texture of concrete and found it was time to experiment with the material. The result is a set of bookends fusing concrete with reclaimed wood. Each cube measures 10 x 10 x 10 cm and weighs just under 2 kg. A set of two is for sale, see the shop...

Moss Surface

The development of a moss surface (mossaic) resulted from my work with bryophytes in conjunction with biophotovoltaic electricity generation. In addition to the study of mosses for their historical uses, cultural and aesthetic aspects, an important strand of my investigation was to grow different types of mosses hydroponically. Experiments with some species were very successful,...

Flytec UP and X-Track Pro

Design, UI and packaging concepts for a GPS live tracker and a simple vario for Flytec (now Volirium), a Swiss manufacturer of flight instruments for free-flight pilots....

Carry-on Stool

A quick concept to convert a collection of eclectic materials into a usable object, this stool stows and carries its own legs. The seat is a second hand suitcase, the legs are old Victorian balusters turned to roughly piano stool height. All materials found at Bricklane Market in London....

Combination Tea Set

A tea set inspired by Theodor Bogler’s combination tea pot, at whose core was modularity suitable for industrial manufacture. At the same time it pays tribute to the oft forgotten pottery work done at the Bauhaus. The set consists of 3 cups of different heights and a lid which changes the function of every...

Moss Cabin

In 2011, designers in collaboration with the University of Cambridge introduced us to the idea of mosses generating electricity. I went on to study mosses in more detail to demonstrate additional benefits of these undervalued plants. As it happens, they are an excellent material for interior design (further development on this happened in a later project creating...

Victorinox Traveller

Many years back the Swiss engineering company Flytec (now Volirium) developed the electronics to go into the Victorinox Traveller, featuring an altimeter. In 2015, when I worked at Flytec as a product designer, we presented new concepts for an updated Traveller as well as ideas harnessing other Victorinox accessories playing to Flytec’s expertise in...
