Nominated for Creative Heroes Awards 2019
Roos Meerman designs processes and techniques. She manages to combine technology, smart textiles, sound, light, music, stories, scent, and touch in aesthetic products that evoke amazement. Together with Tom Kortbeek, who studied music theatre, she devised a tapestry with music and language as a cuddle wall for people suffering from dementia, as well as the multi-sensory objects named Kozie for people with dementia to ‘snooze’ with.
Jury: ‘Roos manages to realise social projects in an investigative, subtle and special way, working in a team on products for a specific target group.. It is well possible to use this on a large scale.’
