Emilie van Spronsen
Emilie graduated in 2015 as an Industrial Design Engineer at TU Delft. She explores the existing interactions between people, products and materials. Her graduation project showed the enormous sacrifice chickens were forced to make in the 'H5N8' bird flu outbreak. After intensive research and material experimentation she designed products from slaughtered bird flu chickens. The results of these experimentations include leather from chicken skin and feet, ceramic from chicken bone ash, and composite materials from feather.
Sarah-Linda is a material, textile and product designer based in Amsterdam. She developed a collection of sensual eating objects in which she creates a stage for food to be presented on and savoured from. With soft shapes crafted in stoneware and porcelain, that trigger our senses. Neither cutlery nor plates, these tools evoke in us a more intuitive way of eating, giving new values to our food. They transform the act of eating into a moment of full attention, gratefulness and pleasure.
Tetsuro Oike (Ph.D) is a chemical scientist and CEO of the innovative research and development company FILTOM Inc. which he founded in 2014 with medical engineer Mr. Satoshi Takeshita. They developed a special filtration technology, the PD filtration technology. It is inspired by the bodily functions of the kidney and the aim is to purify waste water and sea water. At the moment they cannot recycle urine ‘but we will break through the tasks and make it,’ they say. FILTOM also targets the cosmetic industry: "As for sterilisation, we think, if possible, skin care products must be manufactured with fresh material, like fresh food, which required little or no sterilisation, and speedy processes".
