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.
