Hi Eric,

Het heeft ff geduurd om te reageren omdat ik sinds dit weekend in de US zit voor een klus.

Ik ben sinds maart in dienst bij Philips als consultant innovation & creativity bij Innovation Services, het vroegere AppTech.

En jij? Wat doe jij voor leuke dingen? Ik dacht dat jij bij een grafisch ontwerpbureau werkte.


Grtz Fons

Dear DesignProbes Team,

I must say that the complete project, Microbial Home, is really aesthetically well-executed and also it is really interesting as a tool of communication to the wider public, showing a systemic vision and connecting concepts;

if not that i felt absolutely upset and somehow annoyed, about finding in your concepts, the ideas already explored by other researchers and designers. Particularly I refer to my case, by looking at the design which you named "the Paternoster"...i was quite shocked about finding such idea in your project/proposal, as it is very very very similiar (the idea, the components, the organisms, the process...) to a project I previously realized and that is still exhibited, since last June, in Naturalis, Leiden (see and also

And the funny thing is that I even got in touch with you earlier, because I would have loved to collaborate with you, being part, as a freelancer, of your design-probes team; and I sent you information about my projects and my reserach. Not only I never got a direct reply from you (if not just a general one from Philips), but I see afterwards, that you're exploiting somebody's else (mine) reserach, without even giving any credit to it, and without even trying to get in touch with me. That's why here I write you to express all my disappointment about such behaviour, and , confident that you will get in touch with me at some point (hopefully soon), I hope it was maybe just a very unlucky "coincidence".... looking forward to your response!

All the best,
