For this Meetup, we will welcome Maaike Roozenburg from Studio Maaike Roozenburg to discuss her work with Smart Replicas, from its conceptual origins to practical implementation.
Maaike Roozenburg is a designer. She develops concepts, projects, and products on the boarder of heritage, design and visual communication. After graduating at the Gerrit Reitveld Academy in Amsterdam she founded Studio Maaike Roozenburg, in which she combines a historical fascination with high tech materials and techniques and "traditional" crafts. "Research by design" plays an important role in these projects. The studio aims to research and communicate the value of historical (museum) heritage for us now. This approach can results in a design collection of ceramics pieces, a work for the façade of a building, an exhibition for a museum, or a mobile application that unlocks a historical collection. Besides her work at the studio, Roozenburg teaches at the Post Graduate Course of Industrial Design at the Royal Academy of Art.
