Smolders, Vera (author)
Light pollution is becoming an issue due to the excessive use of Artificial Light at Night (ALAN). This thesis explores the design potentials of bioluminescent algae to integrate more darkness into our urban nightscapes, with a design exploration on the TU Delft campus. The goal is to find out if bioluminescent algae can be used to design for...

Martínez Castro, Jose (author)
This project explores how 3D printed pneumatic soft actuators can be used to enhance the expressiveness of textiles with alive-like movement. The research begins by studying current literature on shape changing materials and interfaces in order to select the best candidate material to explore during the project. The project then uses a material...

Today, the foundation of the textile industry is built upon the possibility to purchase synthetic fibres as these allow people to have an extensive amount of choices. Unfortunately, they are as far away from nature as it can get. Over the last decade, the industry is increasingly trying to move towards a more bio-based future, often this can be...

Sonneveld, Diederik (author)
The potential and development of mycelium based materials has been increasing over the last years. This material is proving to be a green alternative for a variety of commodity materials like plastics, wood, leather, etc because of its ability to upcycle waste streams. A lot of existing research performed is focussed on the environmental factors...

Vriend, Vivian (author)
This graduation report aimed to improve the mechanical properties of a sustainable 3D print material made of microalgae, in order to create an macro-porous 3D structure with enhanced longevity and photosynthetic activity. This research builds upon the alginate based bio-ink from Balasubramanian et al (2021). Their material proposal lacked...

Integrating living organisms in design could offer alternative and more sustainable ways of producing and using products. The use of bioluminescent organisms in design is a relatively new and unknown subject. Because of this, interested designers have a lot of homework to do before starting the actual design process. Successfully changing the...

Groutars, Eduard (author)
This project started with analyzing the different roles and potentials that bacteria have for the growth of new materials with ecological benefits. Here questions arise about the role that a designer can fulfill in the development of such novel materials. What new skillset does he/she need to obtain? How will a collaboration with biologists take...

Ghazal, S. (author)
This master thesis describes the process of finding a new purpose for plastic waste materials. Due to the great set of possibilities (strength, stiffness, density, heat resistance, electrical conductivity), the material is often used (Lower, 2009). Many plastics are designed to be used only once, being thrown away after the use. However, thrown...

Poma-Murialdo, C. (author)
This thesis is a material-inspired and tactility-focused project including a number of iterations in which interrelationships between material properties and massage movements (specific techniques) are explored empirically. Simultaneously, following a hands-on approach, potential materials are tested with end users; and finally few are selected...
