Academic Background

Graduated in 1986 as Industrial Designer at TU Delft Industrial Design, he used to work as manager product development for several leading brands in consumer business. As designer he has developed various successful products, as experienced project manager he has led many complex innovation projects to a fruitful close. In 2015 he has founded DNAMX, a network based strategic design consultancy, helping companies to develop and introduce meaningful products into fast changing markets. 

During his career Bart benefited greatly from his education at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. Maybe that is why he has become an enthusiastic ambassador of the Delft Industrial Design Engineering study programmes. In one way or another, he always stayed connected with the faculty, either by coaching master graduate students within the companies for which he worked, or as an external adviser in the educational advisory committee.

As of the curriculum 2016/2017 he has started as part time teacher of practice in the PIM-department, sharing his insights and experience of using design theories and methods in the daily practice of industrial designers. In early 2018 he has started a PhD study to contribute to the theory of industrial design.
