C-FLEX was developed during the Advanced Embodiment Design project (TU Delft) collaboration with Philips Floorcare. The brief was to design and prototype a bagless minimal stick-type vacuum cleaner.

Concept design

An innovative design, driven by the symbiosis idea allows the user to store and use the design as a lighting ornament and grab-and-vacuum in their living environment. The design was elevated to an engineered and functional prototype.

The team

As part of the TU Delft design team, I was responsible for user research, project management, ideation and physical development work.

This project would not have been possible without Fermin Espin Franco, Heidi Lee, Mathijs ter Kuile, Ruben Baldewsing & Melle Grössl, who have done an impressive job making the final working prototype.
