MA work

Good design enriches lives. Not because of what we make, but because of the opportunities that it provides. Focusing on the interaction between user and product I have a broad interest and skill set in conceptual, industrial and user-centred design. I aim not to assume, but to observe, reframe, experiment and finally redefine how to turn our natural and economic resources into the most exciting products imaginable.

Kitchen 2.0 is a research project exploring the future of cooking. It defines alternatives to make cooking safer and more enjoyable.

Squease is a smart garment that reduces anxiety. Squease is the result of a user-centred design project, together with teenagers with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and has been awarded a Professor’s Commendation.
