Hello! My name is Leif,image

at the moment studying food non food at the Design Academy Eindhoven

to learn more about how to give attention and expression to human drives and nature.

The way I work is interdisciplinary and involves research through design.

What I do strives for participation and connectivity.


Currently I work on 3 separate projects which are about stress, our build environment and a participatory cooking workshop.

Besides that I explore the medium of audio-recordings and comic for my design practice.

To check out how things are going with those projects you can visit my blog: bude or follow me on instagram.
