Ir. Ruiter, A.C.
Anna Ruiter is a 'teacher of practice' at Industrial Design Engineering and founder of design studio 'Anna Ruiter'.
She did her graduation project at Philips Design, designing a communication tool to make the Design Probes valuable as a source of inspiration for the internal design community of Philips Design. The Design Probes were a 'far future' research program aimed at understanding lifestyle post 2020. This included developing future scenarios (narratives) and accompanying concepts (provocations), aimed at challenging conventional thinking and stimulating debate inside and outside of Philips Design.
After graduating she started her own design studio, where she focusses on creating inspiring and innovative concepts, mostly with digital fabrication methods such as 3D printing, lasercutting and CNC milling. Designs range from jewelry, to furniture, but also interior designs and are usually made in small series or custom designs.
