R’HONEST | question dice

As my personal give-away I designed a variation on a game I really enjoy called Story Cubes by Rory’s. The concept of the original is to throw some dice and then improvise a short story based on the icons facing up. I wanted to create a more interactive version, so I created three dice (theme, time and emotion) that shape a random question instead of a story. This way one person throws the dice and creates the question, the other person tells a story. I think it suits my work because it’s 3D printed, featuring game mechanics and changing the dialogue....

FILOSOFEST | VR philosophy experiments

Together with Frederik Theuwis I hosted an evening session for around 25 philosophy students and professionals at BANK15 in Tilburg, where we experimented with custom made VR environments to encourage in depth interaction among the participants. With some simple modifications of 360 degree photography we created an alternate dimension of the same space we were in that evening – paired up the players and gave them different challenges. Based on the interactions that took place, participant responses and everyone’s overall enthusiasm the event boosted our confidence that there’s a lot of potential in using VR for abstract research purposes.  ...

R’HONEST | grip mug

As applied research in the field of 3D printing at home I’ve been looking for objects that could benefit from hyper-customization. I realized few things in a household are only used by one single person, but someone’s favorite coffee mug is often one of them – so I made one that only fits my own hand. To capture my grip I covered a cilinder with clay, squeezed it and then 3D scanned the result with my Structure Sensor. Not many 3D printed materials are food safe, but I came across a company (Kwambio) that has developed a specialized 3D printer using ceramics powder to build up their models, then glaze them through a more traditional process – and they produced the first prototype for me.  ...

R’HONEST | KR=Clock

I created a clock for my girlfriend, centered around the place we met. And to make sure she wouldn’t forget our next anniversary I accentuated the numbers of the date we met as well 1-7-’11. If you want to make your own: 3D map made through https://touch-mapper.org/en/ Clock mechanism ordered through https://www.myxlshop.nl/j-s-quartz-uurwerk.html?sqr=uurwerk&, I’m sure there’s plenty varieties available...
3D GRAPH | 40 years at Ouweland

3D GRAPH | 40 years at Ouweland

When my father celebrated his 40th year at Ouweland Expeditie BV I modeled their location from photo references and turned it into my first attempt at a 3D graph. The model features 20 trucks and 23 employees, meant to convey the scale of their operation. As a salute to his jubilee the employees are arranged to form the shape of “40”. It was printed on my own Blueprinter M2....
MEMORY COINS | rich in experience

MEMORY COINS | rich in experience

This project aims to capture a memory (in this case of our yearly holidays) in 3D printed steel coins. If we keep this up we can piggy bank our most precious memories, creating a type of empirical currency.   The forth coin is a playful variation on the principle. It features my face on one side, and my girlfriend’s on the other – so we can let faith decide who has to do the dishes....
TAKE A SEAT | Collaboration-S

TAKE A SEAT | Collaboration-S

This contest challenged us with the question: How can you combine the soft sector of care with the hard material steel in a meaningful way.? We chose a very specific target group: people in a wheelchair, and decided not to focus on their limitation – but rather on the advantage their limitation, and how to share that advantage. We created a foldable chair which can be employed by the wheelchair users themselves to invite people to sit with them when the occasion calls for it. The movement performed to fold out the chair is inviting in itself, and the variable angle in which it can be applied combined with its close proximity to the permanent seat create a personal and informal interaction platform. Inviting someone to the same level can completely change the dynamics of a conversation, making our wheelchair-chair a welcome addition to the care sector of...

FINAL EMBRACE | personalized urn

FINAL EMBRACE A personal project that applies 3D printing technology to bring about a transformation of a standard urn into a unique and personal object. For this design the hands were scanned in from each member of the family left behind; her husband, sons, daughters in law and grand child. Together they shape a ‘final...
