Working with scientists and civil services, Giacomo Piovan  created a system that turns contaminated soil into compressed blocks. The system employs the use of healing plants that are able to absorb and store precious metals as valuable future resources.
A graduate from the Social Design Department, Tristan Kopp  created “prodUSER” to engage users in the assembly process of objects like bikes.
Ricardo Carneiro ‘s “Exploded Rituals” is a coffee maker that takes caffeine lovers on a journey of making their own beverage.
Jin Hyun Jeon ‘s tableware was specially designed for stimulating the user’s senses through form, volume, texture, color and temperature.
Indian-German Elena Pereira used flowers to create “In Bloom”, a collection of emotional interior design pieces that include a sculpture, flowers extracts, and a curtain made from dried roses.
Exposing and sculpting hidden building materials like expanded polystyrene (commonly used for wall insulation), Swedish Therese Granlung  designed a series of quirky furniture pieces for the ec0-conscious home.
Graduate Jaenah Jung designed a massive table made entirely made of recycled cardboard. To one’s surprise, it’s full of hidden drawers!
We are very sad to see Gijs Bakker (posing here for us with a T-shirt gift by “ex-designer”, ex-DAE graduate Martí Guixé ) leaving his beloved job . His departure is said to to be due to “discontent with educational reform plans under development”. He is however very much looking forward seeing his new design-adventures. Good luck to Gijs!
