Instrument Cluster contain a lot more functions nowadays than just a few years ago. My concept allow to use 75% of the display for individual needs like iOS in Car or Android car. It adapts to the driver and is able to satisfy different needs in different situations.

Eiseight combines aesthetics and functionality. The twisted ice cream scoop allows you to hold your wrist in a straight line, while scooping up your ice cream and making it very easy to get your desired result – a perfect scoop of ice cream. Eiseight is being sold under the name „Scoop“ by the Tchibo Company since 2010 and has been sold over a 250.000 times.
Edge is a representative designed plastic cutting board. Due to its diagonally slope, a fluid groove is unnecessary. The slope ends in a corner that can be used as a chute.
Why does the design of infrared thermometers resemble a handle? Nowadays even small children are used to the feeling of headphones – „putting your hand on the ear“ is a very natural and intuitive motion. My study shows, how the design of a thermometer could benefit from this natural feeling.
Lens Safe is an „all in one“ Container for Contact lenses which resembles a pen. The „pen“ has two caps to allow a separate and hygienic storage of the lenses. The inside of the „pen“ contains two units of „cleaning fluid" with enough capacity for several uses and it fits in every pocket.
The Spiral leaf spring (SLS) was developed in collaboration with an engineer of the „Fibre Bremen“. The construction of the SLS enables the continuous adjustment of spring tension. Different material thickness results in different spring tension. During a small research project, which was financed by the BMWi we developed, tested and produced a small series of springs.
Volkswagen was searching for concepts, that would make it possible to use interactive surfaces in the interior of a car. The developments were so successful, that they led to a patent and a technical publication.
Is it possible to simulate products? I approached this question by using the simulation software „Realflow“. The result was a Martini Glass, whose base and shaft were simulated by water. The resulting data was processed by me and can be used during the production of the glass itself.
The principle behind the screw mortar is nothing new. Most screw mortar don’t usually look very attractive and resemble medical equipment. I wanted to change that and developed a timeless design for a semester project.
During a semester project, which was issued by „Meadwestvaco calmar“ I developed a new design concept for spray bottles. My approach was to design a bottle that would be flexible in a particular spot to make movable parts and springs obsolete.
I myself wear contact lenses – so I am very concerned about developing a container which can be used in everyday life. I developed a concept, which resembles a pen and contains everything you need, care fluid, pipettes and separate storage containers for the lenses.
Climate control elements often contain a lot of buttons, which can make them seem really complex at first sight. That is why I develop a concept for a climate control elements, that uses a rotary push-button to combine all functions in one mechanism.
In my opinion beauty shots for the automobile industry represent the Champions League of CGI. Every visual element of the car is supposed to be put in the best light. This leads to Beauty Shots which seem a little unrealistic sometimes. „Maxwell“ may not be the „go – to“ tool for a Beauty Shot, but I was eager to see, what I can achieve in just two weekends.
Which use has a flexible Displays outside of Entertainment electronics? My application concept, allows to simulate Emotions and Situations via 360° panorama videos.
In 2012 the Coca Cola Company starts a design competition about the future of their Coca Cola crate. I started thinking about the demographic structure, more single households and the general logistics. My Design reached the final stage of the competition – beating more than concepts from 8 different countries.
I developed different application concepts to show the full potential of my spring. One application was a Seat Post, which can be infinitely adjusted to the current needs of the cyclist. The other application is a slatted frame with an electric rigidity control. Witch can be easily tailored to particular needs.
Caro is a wheelchair concept that was developed in collaboration with the „Fibre Bremen“ and Innowi . The design of the wheelchair was developed in direct contact to a handicapped person, who contributed to the process by describing his everyday problems and individual needs. This led to a design that is modular, spring-suspended and infinitely adjustable.
I developed a new design language for future stoves. My approach was to use the a very rustic and asymmetrical design – this made it possible to use each side of the fireplace as a „front“ by using a modular door system.
The lamp was also partly simulated by water – very similar to the Martini Glass. Again the Simulation software „realflow“ was used. The resulting lamp resembles a wave or a stream of water. The simulation data was processed and led to the production of the lamp itself.
Ergonomics are very important during a tattooing process. Surprisingly most tattoo machines are not very ergonomic themselves (except the handles of course). I developed a new concept for a tattoo machine that uses a piezoelectric motor.
The tea company „Althaus“ from Bremen was searching a new display for their teas to put up in hotels and other tourist accommodation. The aim was to create a very modular and easy to produce display.
My first semester assignment was to develop a sled, which consisted mainly of wire. The goal was to learn how to work with „Solid Works“ and think about what challenges you face with different materials (in this case: wire). The result was a spring-suspended sled.
