In semester 2, I had my first chance to work on a project and was thus given more freedom to explore what I love about design. My first explorations were into smart materials as I’d chosen the project ‘Smart to Touch’. This led me to origami folding, laser cut auxetic patterns, and actuating those by using the Arduino platform.
This project group consisted of Alexis de Cazenove, Lara Potma, Katrien van Riet, and Laure Smits. Because of the corona lockdown, I was responsible for prototyping Fleureau and the prototype presented in the video is my individual work. Fleureau was created over a period of 3 weeks.
