 My vision on society is

design will become more user-oriented and more personalized in regards to interaction and the design process

MY NAME IS BAS

WHAT IS THERE TO KNOW ABOUT ME?

What I like about design is not only that it looks aesthetically pleasing, for aesthetics are a core aspect of design, but that it has a function and therefore solves a problem or challenge. The product should fill a role in  society where it is missing or absent. Personalized products could fill this role, since this bridges the gap between the consumer and production. Making life easier and being able to help people is what interests me.

MY PORTFOLIO

RIETVELD SCHRÖDER HOUSE

inspired, scaled furniture

 

This is a scaled down Rietveld Schröder house inspired furniture set, designed for the course Design History. This furniture is designed for small spaces, since it utilizes a very small space to convert between a couch, a bed and a study table.

CREATIVE ELECTRONICS

sound reactive lighting

 

This bar is activated by the loudness of surrounding music and voices. Different light sequences make audio visible in a colourful way. A microphone placed at the side of the bar allows the LED strip to react to it’s surroundings. The Arduino is attached to a removable cover. When removing this part, three buttons appear, which allow you to change the sequence settings.

SMARTTAP

electronic turning around warning system

 

Individuality during training is something that has been absent since the dawn of Paralympic swimming, with the main problem being the need of an alert when  approaching the edge of the pool. Since Paralympic swimmers train abroad for a large part of the year, any solution would have to be easy to move and set-up. Our solution is a modular infrared module that detects and sends signal to the swimmer, who hears a bone conducted tone to notify him/her that the edge of the pool is approaching.

O.R.E.O.

testing the usage of lighting with adaptive interfaces

 

A context in which adaptive interfaces are relatively new and unknown is the artificial lighting environment.

Our research focused on when the user benefits from dividing the lighting control with an adaptive interface. In order to be able to study the value of adaptive interfaces within the field of interactive lighting, an interface, O.R.E.O., was designed.

This two layered interface enables the user to change the brightness of the lamps in different parts of the room.
