Paula van Brummelen

Paula van Brummelen has been working as a design researcher at DXM since completing her master’s degree in textile and surface design at the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin and in art education at the Hochschule der Künste Bern. Her research focuses on adaptive structures and soft technologies.

At DMX, she is responsible for the development of kinetic surface structures with integrated smart materials as part of the Sound Adapt R&D project. As the project name suggests, these surfaces will be used in the context of room acoustics.  

A further focus of her research is on the relationship between humans and materials and how this can be influenced by the use of interactive technologies. In addition to her practical work on flexible interactive surfaces, she passes on her knowledge in this field in the Lab for Interactive Technologies at the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin.
