The Icarus Idea

The Icarus Idea

Better aim too high and fail than aim too low and… also fail. Five years of studying ‘really hard’ and then what? We are finding out what graduated Industrial Design Engineers are doing with their career. From creating a million dollar start-up to designing revolutionary toilets.

Also fun for non IDE-students

When you say Eindhoven, you say Dutch Design Week (and PSV and philips, but let's not focus on that right now). Luckily we were already in Eindhoven interviewing Coen van Ham the 19th of october so the four of us (Rowen, Maede, Anna & Bram) headed out to the different buildings with our equipment and tried to interview some cool designers about their projects. For this episode we've selected four designers with completely different projects.  Have a listen to it and get some inspiration.  First fragment: Designer: Katie Pelkian Baselj with her project: Landscape Lab https://ddw.nl/en/programme/6360/landscape-lab Second fragment:  Maastricht Institute of Arts representing Max Dekker with his project: Nothing will save the world https://ddw.nl/en/programme/5925/the-class-of-2021-exhibition-klokgebouw Third fragment:  Naomi van Straalen with her project: Maatje https://maatje.ndri.es/ Last fragment: James Grünfeld with his project: Visual Noise https://ddw.nl/en/programme/6020/graduation-show-2021

New year, new season! The icarus idea is back to bring you the best advise from actual working designers. We started with two new hosts Maede and Rowen who are going to interview an industrial designer every month and talk about their work and projects and how they got there. We start off with someone that has done it all, from working at the television to creating art, to designing and most intrestingly an identity coach. So what does that mean and how can it be implemented with design. Find out in the coming 30 minutes!  Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy! @the_icarus_idea

We did not expect Daan to have time for two students that just want to learn from him. All the more thrilled were we when we got to hear that he found an hour in his schedule. We got the opportunity to casually sit down with him and discuss things like: “What was Daan Roosegaarde like as a student?” “Why is being a voluntary prisoner of your own idea good for the future?” and “Do fishes survive being flushed down the toilet?”. We hope you enjoy listening to this episode half as much, as we enjoyed recording it. Let us know what you think! Have a great holiday season and we’ll see you in 2021.
