Using new technologies to develop new materials, new properties of materials and new ways to produce products

 

Roos Meerman researches techniques and processes, using her design mentality to innovate and pioneer. By altering existing machines or tools, she finds new ways to translate her amazement for nature and physics into something tangible.

 

The outcome is used as a way to talk about advancement in technology, as a conversation starter for crossover collaborations with scientists and industrial partners. With a special interest in 3D printing, Meerman explores the potential of this game-changing technique in multiple projects, challenging the boundaries and applicabilities of both material and mechanics.

Hear the birds sing, a brook flow and a dog bark in the distance. @kozie_official  #dutchdesignweek2018“Gli eleganti vasi in plastica disegnati da Roos Meerman sono stati sviluppati usando una tecnica chiamata “Aera Fabrica” che mescola stampa 3D e soffiaggio.” @elledecoritalia #vases #flowers“In a different approach to how humans and technology can interact was the humble blue Kozie Me – a soft, tactile and programmable object that plays music or sounds when stroked. It was designed for elderly people with dementia to both calm them and activate their brains by Roos Meerman and @tomkortbeek .” Lara Chapman wrote about Kozie on Dutch Design Week in TL magazine.

The main inspiration for this exhibition is the beauty of nature.
In nature, for example when you walk through the forest and you look up, you see the sun rays beaming through the leaves, which gives a beautiful view. All the leaves are enlightened, some become bright yellow-green, others show the shadow play of the leaves above. That simple but immense beauty is the inspiration for the whole exhibition.

Kozie has been specifically developed for elderly care, since research has shown positive feedback when the installation was used in the care of people with dementia. Photography @michielspijkers
