About Me

My name is Leonie Tenthof van Noorden, an industrial designer passionate about everything around materials, fashion, technology and how these elements interact and can be combined.

In my projects, I always seek to design unique experiences for individual users. By doing this, the way people value these products is enhanced. Using unique elements, like body movement, as the input of a system, its responses will be as unique too. This provides an openness in my designs, that allow users to express themselves.

For the materials used in my designs, I search for combinations of the complexity and opportunities of high tech and the deep values of hand-craft. The involvement of crafts gives a design its uniqueness I strive for. The high-tech allows me to design beyond the limits of craft in terms of complexity and interactivity.
