(Dis)connect/Always On
Interior Architecture and Furniture Design will present the exhibition '(Dis)connect/Always On' during the Open Day 2015. The exhibition displays the growth curve from work of the 1st years until the graduation year - and beyond.
Students from all years work with assignment based on the year theme (Dis)connect/Always On and reflect upon our continuously 'connected' life. How can they contribute to the ramifications of cyber space in the physical world as critical designers?

- Camila Fix, Brazil ESTEEM Steamer set
HEMA ontwerpwedstrijd 2014 nominatie publieksprijs Esteem is een stomerset met een hedendaagse en speelse stijl voor dagelijks gebruik. Met het gebruik van Esteem bespaar je tijd, energie en geld. Op een pan met kokend water leg je op de speciale deksel je eten, wat dan gestoomd wordt.

- Tim Keijzers, Nederland Afgestudeerd met bestek “Hap”, 2013
Bij het ontwerp was het doel de overgang van het handvat naar het snijvlak, het handvat met de kom en het handvat met de tanden zo natuurlijk te maken, dat er eigenlijk geen sprake meer is van een overgang. Bij het ontwerpen liet hij zich inspireren door open volumes. Door te spelen met uitsparingen en restvormen zijn nieuwe lijnen en verbindingen binnen het bestek ontstaan. Eenheid en herkenbaarheid door materiaal weg te happen.

- Lilian van Daal, Nederland Afgestudeerd 2014, BIOMIMICRY, 3D printed soft seat
The production and assembly process of soft seating (couches) is normally far from sustainable: it is made from various materials prepared for assembly in different factories. It is also difficult to recycle the various parts. With BIOMIMICRY: 3D PRINTED SOFT SEAT Lilian van Daal thought of a new concept to make the production of soft seating more sustainable through 3D printing.

- Wouter Siewerts, Nederland. Afgestudeerd 2012, Opwindbaar speelgoed voor de openbare ruimte ERIK
Erik (het beest) wordt geplaatst in openbare ruimten als de hal van een museum, theater, stadhuis, etc.. Kinderen passeren en zien hem staan, ze raken geïnteresseerd en gaan op onderzoek uit. Wat is dat, wat kan ik daar mee? Je kan hem opwinden en er vervolgens op rijden. Het gaat niet ver en ook niet snel maar de bewegingen zijn heel dynamisch en spannend. In de vormgeving heb ik een kruising gezocht tussen dier en machine.
