"Design research between tech and craft for a sustainable future"
Bureau Baggerman was founded by Michelle Baggerman in 2010.
Why design research? I am a curious designer. I take an intuitive and inquisitive approach and see every project as a chance for exploration. Combined with a growing unease about adding more 'stuff' to the world, I decided to focus not on product design but instead apply my skills to generate knowledge through design research. I focus on increasing sustainability by reframing and reinventing existing (old) knowledge and materials and linking them to new techniques, methods and materials in innovative ways.
My research results in new knowledge and inspiring prototypes which demonstrate the potential of sustainable materials and production techniques, which can be adopted by industry. In this I strive for social, ecological and economical sustainability.
This website shows a variety of projects to demonstrate my approach to design and research, but it's not all I do. A complete overview of my work can be found on my LinkedIn profile. If you'd like to get in touch, you can send me an e-mail here and if you'd like receive (sporadic) updates from me, you can sign up for my newsletter here.
