#17: Noise-cancelling windows and wacky giraffes

Working from home provides us with a whole new set of challenges and opportunities. As designers, shouldn’t we be the best equipped people for this? In this final part of our special Freedive isolation series, Ianus chats with Joost Dommisse. He studies Integrated Product Design and they together talk about designing noise-cancelling windows, how to study design from a distance and wacky robotic giraffes.

#16: Infuse a Little Empathy

How are you doing? A question we should ask ourselves and each other frequently in this isolation period. And we should listen carefully. In part two of our special three-part Freedive isolation series, Ianus chats with Sofie Dideriksen. She is part of the TU Delft Design for Interaction community Infuse, and they talk about design for mental health and student life in isolation.

#15: Tales of an Isolation Veteran

Due to COVID-19, design students, lecturers and researchers are stuck at home. How are they coping? For part one of a special three-part Freedive series, we talk with Yongqing Fei, or Jackie as we know her. She has a lot of experiences with quarantines and tells about redesigning an oven from home and her story on moving from isolation in China to isolation in Delft.

#14: (Not) Safe for Designers?

Material science is often a black box for designers. But in Delft Design, knowledge on material properties is essential. Erik Tempelman has literally written the book on it: “(Not) Safe for Designers”. He talks with Ianus Keller about the surprising journeys of material properties, how the Pixar character Anton Ego inspires him and explores the meaning of the Dutch word ‘stevig’.

#12: Copying from the Old Dutch Masters

Industrial Designer Engineering researcher Willemijn Elkhuizen is on a mission to discover the perfect 3D-scan and print of paintings.

#7: We Should Think Into the Box

In the middle of Departure Hall 3 of Schiphol Amsterdam Airport, we talk with Professor Sicco Santema. He researches people in transit, through cooperation with large players in the field of mobility and travel, such as Schiphol Airport, KLM and Amsterdam RAI. He talks about why failure is good, if travelling is the new smoking, and how we can design mobility as something bigger than just your destination.

#6: An Audience with the Context Queen

How do you observe people to improve your design? In the latest IDE podcast episode, we take a deep dive into the world of context mapping with Froukje Sleeswijk Visser. She pioneered this design research methodology as a way of gaining insight into the user of future designs. Listen to Froukje and you will never look at the colour of your Wi-Fi router in the same way. Also in this episode: Ianus exercises some demons about his secret childhood hatred for skating.
