Stijn Ossevoort, is a lecturer and researcher on user centred design, sustainability, design technology and product interaction at the University of Applied Science in Luzern. He received an MSc from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and an MA from the Royal College of Art in London. He has been working for fifteen years as an artist/engineer to develop interactive future visions for clients such as Prada, Nike, Ron Arad Associates, Hewlett Packard and Philips.
In 2004 he joined the wearable Computing group at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich on various wearable-computing projects, such as the first truly wearable computer “QBIC”. Shortly after he worked as a free-lance designer for Philips to create fully functional future fashion visions such as the “Bubelle” and “Frisson” dresses.
In 2007 he moved to Barcelona to establish an Innovation Lab for Roca. He worked on various future bathroom concepts and was responsible for the workflow and set-up of the innovation projects. Ever since he has combined his creative engineering skills to inspire companies and users alike by building experience models.
Parallel to his work at the University, he continues to challenge our future visions.
