By combining fragmentary elements from the past with a futuristic imagery, a fascinating cyborg-sculpture came into being. Nick Ervinck incorporates past, present and future in this sculpture. At the same time, the work can be placed in an ancient sculptural tradition because of the similarities with the classical portrait bust. With its majestic posture, impressive armour and piercing gaze, NESURAK towers over the visitor as a heroic god statue from the future. The surreal image entails a certain mythical power by referring to knights, science fiction and manga figures. While designing the sculpture, Nick Ervinck was inspired by robots, aliens, monsters and mysterious creatures that were created by artists like H. R. Giger, creatures that play the leading role in many science fiction movies in the struggle for dominion over the earth. On the other hand, the geometric yet monumental visual language refers to the traditional helmets, jewellery and images from ancient cultures, such as the masks and sculptures from the Inca and Mayan culture. Multiple fragmentary pieces and hundreds of hours of manual computer-aided drawing were needed to achieve this impressive sculpture. Through the use of the latest computer software and 3D printing techniques, Nick Ervinck is able to design and execute the complex work. The visual language catches the eye of the visitors, as if their gaze seems to get lost in the structures and shapes. Because of the visual appealing design, the works can be viewed from different angles and perspectives.

Ana has investigated the material agency of paper by folding tessellations. Out of these simple folds rich movements can emerge which she actuates with mechanical mechanisms. The shapes and reflective patterns resembling bioluminescence find their origin in her fascination with plankton.

I believe people can have a much more fluid character than merely being categorised as male or female. My designs allow people to explore who or what they can be, and this takes courage. To emphasize the theatrical aspect of my accessories I use monumental forms with distinct silhouettes.

The way we experience our public space is going to change in a way beyond our imagination. the story about a changing climate has no tactility that we can hold on to, also, there is no concrete statement that we can rely on in these therms. Based on facts and predictions, I used my skill as designer to make climate change more tangible. So, I took the umbrella, to me a symbol of weather and climate, and asked myself the question what the future role of this product should be. Climate change is a fact, but we don’t know in which way. So I created a concept about some of these predictions and reshaped it into a climate adaptive umbrella. I believe that we should embrace climate change and use it as a design tool, Because I believe that the best things come from an inexaustible source.

“I have designed a collection to confuse electronic eyes in addition to you as a viewer. More and more security cameras appear in the streets, while we have no idea who is looking at the images and what is going to happen or can happen to them. I am afraid of a police state in which there is permanent and absolute control over civilians, where every error is registered. Privacy then no longer exists.

The confusion is achieved in this collection by applying Razzle Dazzle. This originally army camouflage from the beginning of the twentieth century is intended to mask ships in such a way that it is impossible to estimate the speed and direction of the ship through a lens of a periscope. Instead of the periscope lens, my pieces confuse a camera lens. Instead of the speed and direction, I disguise the gender, orientation and measurements of my models. What is the front, back or side? Who is this, where does he / she go? “

The InnerView is a 2,5D tactile map in a form of a necklace for visually impaired and blind people. It aims to support the independent exploration of unknown space and provide an overview of its structure. In order to do so, the map provides information about the different furniture within the space such as sofas, tables, doors, door openings and stairs. The surface of the map is designed with pins of height 1mm and 5mm distance from each other. That represents an actual distance of 3 footsteps and aims to help the visually impaired or blind person estimate real distances.
To connect blind people more with art and culture: special tours for blinds and blind maps made by this Industrial Design graduate of the TU/e

The ostrich feather was once a highly valued commodity during the 19th Century, as woman sought out big plumes to decorate their flamboyant hats, but since then, the feather has fallen from grace. I aim to enhance the value of the ostrich feather, a very specialized product coming from the 150 year old ostrich feather industry in Oudtshoorn, South Africa. I hope to go beyond the aesthetic and decorative and rather return it to its former glory in a more integrated and practical way, within modern society where big feathered hats are no longer stylish. The breathable, washable, soft, warm and incredibly light weight textural qualities of the feathers mean it can be used in a variety of practical ways, making it a functional textile art. By harnessing the qualities of the feathers and creating a new craft through these feathered fabrics, it could not only save many animals lives, but also could create a new industry of economic value to the small town of Oudtshoorn.

The “Digital Shaman Project” revolves around robots for domestic use wearing 3D-printed faces of deceased people, and manipulated with specially developed programs to imitate those people’s speech, behavior and other physical characteristics. The idea behind this is to propose a new form of funeral in which robots spend 49 days after a person’s death with the members of his or her family (49 days is according to Buddist faith the time spirits need to enter a new life).

Interactive Architecture Lab – Sarotis
Sarotis is a soft wearable, with fluidic hydrogel interfaces, designed to study whether a person’s awareness of space could be amplified by 3D scanning technologies.

Sovar and Sarotis are parts of a series of active and soft wearables, which map certain architectural elements on the skin of the wearer. The cross-modal mapping of the space on the user’s back raises their attention to the surroundings and increases their sense of presence within a space.

Melanie Bonajo – Progress vs Sunsets
Bonajo’s film investigates how our relationship to nature has changed through the popularization of amateur nature footage on the Internet. By interviewing children about our current state of the planet the film addresses issues around bio-politics but also the systematic discrimination of young people.

Simon Dogger
Simon Dogger is a designer with a whole new point of view. During his studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven he lost his sight and was forced to take a long break. He returned as a non-visual designer, with a renewed ability to listen and feel, and a strong drive to regain his independence. Not seeing himself as handicapped, but as someone who takes in information differently, he set out to explore more inclusive forms of communication.
Simon Dogger will speak at the Drinks, Pitches and Demo’s Event on Wednesday 23rd, sign up now!

Sarotis has been been highlighted by Domus as one of the top ten design projects of 2016 and also won the silver medal during the New York Design Awards 2018.

Superpowers and Mother Nature, who is the boss? Dauglas Hostader: ‘It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind the façade of order. And yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order. There are forms of order among a lot of confusion and a many forms of confusion within order’.

Nature’s greatest, and lest understood, paradox is that she is both ordered and chaotic. This paradox determines the evolution of my sculptures and every process in human society.

What to do against mass surveillance? Do we have to walk in masques, or can we be more fashionable? Adem Elahel from Belgium does it.
