Spaac Motorized Bicycles is co-founded by Jos Ramselaar and Jurrit Hollands. After doing several projects in the bicycle industry it was time to start something ourselves. Electric bicycles were mainly used for recreational purposes by elderly and weren’t seen as an option for commuting by the working class. The Spaac S5 is a very simple yet clever, stylish city bicycle with automatic gears and integrated lights. The Spaac S5 is now available at Juizz.
“We designed the S5 from scratch and detailed the concept into a manufactured product that is now sold in the Netherlands. Having the role as designer, production manager, marketeer is the perfect mix of letting my creativity flow.”
Project for Exasun with a focus on design, engineering and manufacturing of a destacker. This machine positions the cassettes with solar cells into a position where they can be picked up by the gripper of the pick and place machine. This gripper then places the cells on a panel.
Bendywood is a highly bendable piece of wood due to intensive treatments the material has undergone. For the company Van Rijsoort (producing bend metal constructions) three different furniture concepts where delivered showing the characteristics of the material.
Various displays for Van Raalte. The displays are used for commercial promotions and therefor have to draw attention. A short timespan from idea phase to production made quick decision making necessary.
Folding bike design for Beixo bicycles that eventually got into production. Beixo’s designs are characterized by the chainless transmission; instead of the conventional chain drive, a shaft drive is used.
The goal of this cum laude graduation project was to design a folding bike for young urban commuters, that is easily transported when folded and delivers a comfortable ride.
The aircleaner for Philips cleans the air for people with severe asthma, dust mite and COPD problems. A fan makes the air flow from bottom to top, while polluted air particles are ionized and caught by the HEPA filter within. The housing illuminates when the air gets cleaner.
This TU Delft master course project was awarded with a 1st price in the aircleaner category award and an audience award.
Entry for the TU Delft Auditorium Lectern competition. Awarded with the 2nd price. Instead of a classic shaped lectern there is chosen for a more minimalistic one, the speaker shouldn’t become invisible behind the chair.
Solar cell cassette for Exasun. The cassette is loaded in a pick and place machine where the cells will be positioned on a solar panel. To keep to costs low, standard components were used and the body was made by laser cutting.
The Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) radio is equipped with a touchscreen that lets one select its favourite radio station and gives actual info about the song and artist. The housing of the radio is milled out of a piece white carrera marble.
Constructing and visualizing of a scuba tank for Baars-Cipro. The tank is used for diving instructions.
This mechanism developed for Exasun is used to pre tag a solar cell onto a sheet using a hot press.
