I am Niek Rutten, an Eindhoven based Industrial Design Student. In my design work, I focus on the Sensorial Experience of everyday life. I am highly interested in how the man-made world looks, feels and sounds. From an evolutionary standpoint our bodies went from smashing rocks together to swiping on touchscreens in an instant. With the breakneck pace at which the world is developing in the modern age, it is no wonder our sensorimotor skills fail to keep up. This is where I believe we designers come in. As technology continues to inhabit a larger, more intimate place in people's lives, I make sure my designs make sense to my users, rather than asking my users to make sense of my designs. By designing whilst considering how our bodies perceive and interact with the world, I attempt not only to smoothen interactions and enhance intuitiveness but also surprise by breaking conventions and inspire by encouraging reflection on what makes us who we are.
