Design Studio Daphna Laurens originates from
the collaboration of designers Daphna Isaacs
Burggraaf and Laurens Manders. As graduates of
the Design Academy Eindhoven, their combined
scope ranges from bespoke items to carefully crafted
interior designs. Without question, their forte lies
in the fabrication of objects and products. Daphna
Laurens apply a variety of methods to accomplish
their designs, largely depending on the assignment.
However, one thing that characterizes the studio is the
playful and intuitive approach that is wielded in the
designing process.


For Daphna Laurens, the In4nite II project commenced
by familiarizing themselves with the Colback®
material. Daphna Laurens distinguish themselves as a design studio with a strong focus on shape, materialization, and material interaction with people; Colback® gave them the impression to be principally ‘technical.’

Generally speaking, Colback® applications aren’t
aesthetically attractive, or even visible in the final
products; its end-users neither see nor feel the
material. Daphna Laurens decided to take on the
challenge of turning the material into ‘Colfront,’
a material that does look and feel attractive.


Upon searching for suitable techniques to tool the
material, Daphna Laurens were led to the discovery
of Ultrasonic Welding. The technique made it possible
to create a series of objects/products that are made
entirely out of Colback®, since the weld (or ‘bond’) is
created by locally applying high-frequency ultrasonic
acoustic vibrations. This means that no adhesives or
any other material is added to create the final product.
