Video: Tricks, Tools and Traps of Collaboration: Thomas Lommée on OpenStructures

Following his studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven, Les Ateliers Paris and the Institute without Boundaries Toronto, Thomas Lommée (1979) has participated in a series of multidisciplinary design research groups in Europe and overseas. In 2007, he established Intrastructures, a pragmatic, utopian design-studio that emphasizes on the physical, digital and social context of product-design. He is also the initiator of the Open Structures project, a hands-on design experiment that explores the possibility of a modular construction model where everyone designs for everyone on the basis of one shared geometrical grid. Next to his activities as designer / design researcher Lommée has been teaching at the 'Social Design' research program at Design Academy Eindhoven’s Master course and is the co-founder and mentor of the 'ENSCImatique' at the ENSCI in Paris. He lives and works in Brussels.
