The Dutch designer discussed her work with Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
Based in Amsterdam, she has previously designed a stained glass window that harvests solar energy and converts it into amounts of electricity that can charge small computer devices.
Other previous projects include a glass desk with solar panels on its surface which generate electricity from the sun for charging gadgets and a collection of drinking glasses, jugs and vases that incorporate a solar dye that creates electricity from sunlight.
This conversation is sponsored by Philips TV & Sound and is part of our Screentime series for Virtual Design Festival, which will feature interviews with European designers including Adam Nathaniel Furman, Shahar Livne, Teresa van Dongen and Ini Archibong among others.
