Merel Kamp

Docent Theorie bij de Master Industrial Design

Merel Kamp has been teaching Theoretical Skills at the Master Industrial Design programme of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) since 2017.

Merel Kamp (1983) is a freelance journalist and maker with a background in philosophy, design and woodworking. She currently writes for (Dutch) media such as Trouw, Filosofie Magazine and DUDE on the subjects of philosophy, technology and ecology and is part of the philosophical book-review team of Dutch newspaper Trouw. And since no one is only one person, next to philosophy and writing, hands-on woodworking and ceramic projects are cherished activities.
