June 13th 2011

Last week, the young and talented designers of the Next Nature lab at the Eindhoven University of Technology presented their end of term works in an internal exhibition. There are over fifty people active within the next nature theme. Projects range from self-camouflaging bikes, to blushing dresses, to rural solar energy projects. Some snapshots.

Jeffrey Braun demonstrates his morphing cutlery concept...

...his knives morph in your hand when employed for different purposes.

Mendel Broekhuijsen presents his future nostalgic record collection.

Ardjoen Mangre made a bike that contracts its limbs – like a turtle – to avoid being stolen.

A neo-tribal water bag. How handy when water supply breaks down in the suburb.

Marcel van Heist went to India to develop a low cost solar powered lamp.

Good design goes to heaven.

Aylin Groenewoud developed a gender selection condom – boy or girl?

A blushing dress by Doenja Oogjes.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
