Baby Seat

Apt for both kids and their parents

Baby Seat

in collaboration with DIBA Product Solutions, ETOW and Badabulle

We have two users here; babies and parents. A parent buys the seat, handles it, and walks with it across the street. A baby sits in it, eats, plays, and not to forget, smears it all over! A focus point in this project was to not consider the seat as a toy. With this in mind a seat could be developed that is appropriate for both parents and their kids.

Branch Cutter

Switching to an electric, circular saw

Branch Cutter

in collaboration with KINZO and Delft University of Technology

Switching from a conventional pruner to an electric saw increases power and allows users to cut off thicker and hard-to-reach branches. At the same time it brings along a number of unforeseen usability problems. These were dealt with during the design process by means of mock-ups, technical models and extensive usage tests with a fully functional prototype.

The Last Bit

Standing up against dinner etiquette

The Last Bit

in collaboration with Elisava and the Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona

Ever felt uncomfortable after stepping into a restaurant? A bit too formal for your taste? "El último poquito" is a tableware concept that addresses this uneasiness at dinner situations, and (literally) stands up against table etiquette. When someone is about to finish his/her soup, this plate will lift up surprisingly, after which the last bit can easily be eaten.

Public Wardrobe Service

Providing more coherence with the concert experience

Public Wardrobe Service

in collaboration with Ahoy Rotterdam and Delft University of Technology

The conventional coat room ignores the social and psychological aspects of its users. This new concept, a self service system, intends to provide more coherence between a concert experience and the act of handing in and picking up one's belongings. En route from entrance to concert area, the visitor can casually deposit his belongings, as storage availability of lockers is shown through LED lighting at various levels. After the concert the visitor is actively involved in the recovery process, therefore positively influencing his perception of waiting time.

Sketching Lessons

Tutoring design students and young professionals

Sketching Lessons

Sketching is about being able to convert thoughts into drawings. On a personal level it serves to explore ideas, create partial solutions and develop integral concepts before starting computer aided design. It also allows easy communication of ideas/concepts to other members of the development team and clients, especially during the early stages of a design project. Pieter Molenaar tutors design students and young professionals to improve their sketching skills, through group classes. These classes are adapted to the required sketching level. For enquiries get in touch through mail@pietermolenaar.nl

Bicycle Trailer Case

The wish to combine cycling and surfing in faraway countries inspired me to come up with this concept. Transport your bicycle in a case and turn it into a trailer when arriving at your final destination.
