Industrial Designer, TU Delft


Originally from Berlin, I ventured to TU Delft to dive into industrial design. Intrigued by the way we travel, I explored the intersection of design and functionality, leading to innovative concepts that challenge conventional travel experiences. My journey recently took me to Deutsche Bahn for an internship, where I'm applying my insights to real-world projects. Along the way, I had the opportunity to create a design for train interiors, utilizing innovative composite materials. I am honored to be invited to the JEC World 2024 show by the SMC BMC European alliance.
