OUR IDENTITY.

6
Master students of Industrial Design Engineering
3
specializations: Strategy, interaction and product design
6
Bachelor degrees from 3 different universities

Design from NL

DesignfromNL is a design team educated at the Technical University of Delft. This is where we learned the ways that are characteristic in Dutch Design. We apply these elements all in our own way, through our own specialisations; business strategy, human interaction and product detailing.

TU Delft

The Industrial Design faculty of Delft is the oldest and biggest faculty in the world. At TU Delft we learn to pay attention to material- en manufacturing based techniques in order to create useful products for a sustainable world.

Dutch Design

Industrial Design from the Netherlands is minimalistic, experimental, quirky and most of all innovative. It is known throughout the world in designs like Le Lapin by Nikolai Carels or in the products from the department store HEMA.

Business strategy

The Master Strategic Product Design focuses on the company-side of product development. Our SPD’ ers look at what the company does and what kind of product the company needs.

Human interaction

Our teammembers from the master Design for Interaction will focus on the user of the product, and what his needs and wishes are. Our DfI’ers don’t look at what a product is, but what it needs to be.

Product detailing

The last step in product design is creating an actual product. This is where our Integrated Product Designers go to work. They will detail the concept that the other team members envisioned.
