  • Roos Meerman / Product Design

‘For me, designing begins with all types of material tests: dipping, heating, melting, stretching, crushing, or freezing a material. My goal is to control the material in a way that it retains its freedom of movement. With the project Canorgraphy, I use the sound waves emitted by speakers to visualise sound by printing on textiles in various ways. The ‘sketched’ fabrics are then converted into scarves. In the second investigation, Aera Fabrica, I use heat and air to blow up 3D-printed shapes. With a 3D-printer, it is possible to print shapes within other shapes, so you can make use of different surface thicknesses in an object. The result is a series of proposed product shapes that can be created with this technique.’
