Master Industrial Design podcast: design journey


In this first Dutch spoken episode of design journey, KABK alumna Lilian van Daal (1988) talks about how she takes inspiration from nature when designing new products. She actively seeks collaborations with both scientists and industrial partners. But what she loves to do most is put ants under her microscope.

Lilian is among the new generation of designers and creators who were supported in 2018 by a Talent Development grant and is featured in the Talent Platform by the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie during the Dutch Design week 2018.
