De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Introduction post

On this blog, a project named ‘ Vindplaats Delft’ will be described from start to finish. The final goal will be to show ceramic drinking cups to the public at the final UNIC meeting, which is planned on May 2011 in Delft. These cups will be made with techniques used in rapid prototyping and pottery. The examples which will be used to develop the ceramic version will be glass cups which are unique and were made in the early 17th century. These archeological pieces are now part of the Boymans & van Beuningen collection.


Delft is more than 750 years old. The city owes its name to the world ‘delving’, digging the oldest canal, the Oude Delft (digged in 1100). As early as 1355 the city reached the size it would remain until the 19th century. The glass objects were found on locations like the Oude Delft and the Pieterstraat. Designer Maaike Roozenburg wants to use these pre-industrial cups with a rich history as a starting point for a new design, this way the old heritage can be used for daily use.


Maaike Roozenburg will cooperate with TU Delft students to create a low-tech product, with high-tech prototyping processes like CT-Scanning/3D scanning and 3D-printing. Eventually Maaike Roozenburg will use her porcelain expertise to create the final product in porcelain named ‘Vindplaats Delft’. This product will be supplied in a casket with information about the origin, create history and founding location.
This project will combine old crafts and high-tech technology together. It combines all the qualities which resemble Delft; rich history, traditional pottery and TU Delft knowledge and experience.



The group of TU Delft students are following the minor Advanced Prototyping, Vindplaats Delft is a project for ‘Augmenting prototypes’ under supervision of Ir. Jouke Verlinden. The group of five students consists of four Industrial Design students and one Architecture student.
