Research on Startup Studios

For my thesis at RSM, I researched an upcoming form of business incubation, the so-called startup studio.

Design Cases

During my studies I did many interesting projects. A small selection of projects I am proud of are showcased below.  Please refer to my academic portfolio to see all my work.


Smart Home Design

Harmony explores new functionalities in the IoT home. A family of devices promotes social interactions and help users to collaboratively take care of the daily chores in the Smart Home.

Healthy Seating for the Elderly

Dementia Design Research

First-hand research unveiled the problematic sitting behavior of elderly suffering from dementia. By applying a research-through-design method an adaptive seating system was designed. An active & healthy sitting posture vitalizes physical and mental health.

Design Air Furniture

Research, Design & Production

Design furniture for a luxury event market. A new inflatable material provides interesting opportunities for combining compact transport with premium aesthetics. 

Creative Atmosphere

I believe that the best and most creative work is created when there is passion & fun at the heart of the project. It can make the most challenging tasks feel effortless. So what about a little music while reading on?


After my studies at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, where I developed a strong foundation in industrial product design, I decided to continue my studies with a master’s in industrial design.  After doing some electives in innovation management I decided to combine to two masters in a double degree.
