Last week we mentioned our collaboration with TU/Delft. However we like to explore the full potential of the machines, that’s why we are collaborating with the Design Academy in Eindhoven as well!

The department Kompas Lab3 has a program called ConceptTools which is the domain of Olaf Stevens, Lecturer and developer of this research program.  Normally waste products are part of the material development proces but on my request LAB students will be doing experiments with plastic waste. Explore ways how to re-use it and look for alternative ways to mold/shape/process it. A research that is focussed on finding applications that make the material plastic valuable and precious, thinking beyond the disposable look and feel
