Nicole is a service designer in the Foresight, Research and Innovation team at Arup. As a systems thinker with a human-centered design approach, she creates future scenarios to illustrate current developments and provide insights on strategic fields of action.
Nicole identifies and specifies the user-centered context in which a future product, service or process will be located to trigger imagination and reflection. She believes that by focusing on the needs and aspirations of the users, we can design the most valuable and sustainable human experience in the built environment.
With a background in product and industrial design, as well as masters in material futures, Nicole has a fascination for new materials, emerging technologies, speculative and critical design, circular economy and cross border collaborations to foster innovation.
