Connie Golsteijn

MSc(Hons) and BSc(Hons) Indstrial Design (Eindhoven University of Technology)

As a design researcher in a rapidly changing world, Connie is interested in creating creative new concepts for everyday situations and environments, through a user-centered approach. During her under- and postgraduate studies at the Industrial Design department of the Eindhoven University of Technology she developed an interest in studying and designing for the home environment and family life through qualitative user involvement and she has explored this area through several design and research projects.

Connie is currently doing a PhD on Materialising Media, in which she aims to study the affordances of digital and physical media and develop novel concepts that aim at a better integration of digital and physical media in the domestic environment. Specifically, she is looking at physical and digital craft practice and developing new tools and platforms for crafting practices that integrate physical and digital crafting materials, processes and tools into interactive creations – this is called hybrid crafting. This project is done in cooperation with the Industrial Design department of the Eindhoven University of Technology and is sponsored by Microsoft Research.
