Internship circular fashion product design
At Waag Society, institute for art, science and technology, creative technology is developed for social innovation. We research technology, develop concepts, run pilots, create prototypes and act as an intermediate between the arts, science and the public. The TextileLab explores alternative for the fashion industry: the second most polluting industry in the world. The Open Wetlab is a leading lab for bio-art, biodesign and do-it-together biology. In the last year a number of prototypes have been developed on the intersection between our TextileLab and Open Wetlab, bridging material and biosciences, including biological textile dyeing techniques. Now it is our ambition to turn this biological textile dyeing technique prototype into a product.
We offer a unique opportunity to develop a prototype into a product including the product design, customer experience, packaging and marketing!
We invite anyone with a background in industrial and product design to apply for this internship position; someone with an appetite for hands-on experimentation (also biology), a vision on circular economies and the guts to develop a product based on those principles.
Next to the Open WetLab and TextileLab, Waag Society also houses a fully operational Fablab. So you’ll have direct access to prototyping facilities and manufacturing tools to speed up the process.
