Here's the DreamTeam!

Changemakers of DesignLab UTwente

DesignLab is a bright and creative environment and a home for new ideas and society friendly innovations. Alongside the clever engineers, designers, and researchers in DesignLab you'll always find DreamTeamers, keeping the DesignLab operational and helping you with your questions. If you are a student at University of Twente, you could be a DreamTeamer too!

Who are DreamTeamers?

As DreamTeamers, we aim to keep DesignLab an open and friendly environment for students, visitors, and other DreamTeamers. We are the ones keeping DesignLab operational, as we are in the space to ensure that everything is working properly. We are there to assist students with their projects and give a modern and fresh touch to different ideas and projects that are happening in the DesignLab. However, we are not only there to make DesignLab’s space more accessible. At DesignLab we work on various projects such as Makers Nights in which students can make use of the workshops to work on their personal projects, Light Bulb chats where we invite guests to present various topics, prototyping beautiful art installations, creating playful methods for turning an idea into a prototype, and much more! Also, we conduct research and use the DesignLab approach in collaboration with the DesignLab researchers, project managers and other internal and external partners.

Daily operations & Support

During the day we're at DesignLab to help you prepare rooms for education, events, research and help using the facilities, workshops and tools available. 

For any questions, you can always find a DreamTeamer sitting at the front desk or wandering through DesignLab. 

Combining Art and Science

"[The Eye Catcher installation in TechMed center] is a reflection of past, ongoing, and new connections across different fields to innovate in the healthcare domain. Things are always developing, new connections made, and there is a growth that comes out of it. The artwork itself is also changing constantly - it is able to decide for itself how to light up its surface. In this way, it lives alongside TechMed inhabitants."

- Edo de Wolf, DreamTeamer
