Christa van Gessel (1980) studied Industrial Design - Strategic Product Design at Delft University of Technology. As a co-designer & researcher, she likes to bring people together to work on projects that deal with complex issues from a designing perspective, to find underlying questions together, to chart the broader context and deeper dreams, and ultimately to develop appropriate interventions for real people.
In addition being involved in these projects as a designer, she also reflects on the projects as a researcher, so as to develop new methods for the co-design field.
