Why I Design - Q&A with Felix Böck

What do you design?
ChopValue™ designs high performance home decor products - entirely made of recycled bamboo chopsticks. We create composite materials with a wooden texture ending up as tiles for walls and flooring, coasters and small objects as well as shelving - even table tops. 

Why I Design - Q&A with Kody Baker

What is your design and what are you presenting at Why I Design?
We have designed a fully enclosed, pedal-electric trike for use in one-way sharing networks that we call Veemo. It is regulated as an e-bike, meaning it can ride in bike lanes and doesn't require a driver's license, yet offers much of the functionality of a small car.

Why I Design - Q&A with Barbara Alink

Why do you design?
I design because I am curious, when I recognize a problem, I try to understand it from all angles and then want to translate it into a solution.  I care about people, I design because it is my way of serving our human community, designing allows me to express my vision. It is not the design itself, but how it makes you feel, what it can do. The design is never for me but for the user.
