- Project manager Make
Isabel Berentzen is project manager within Waag's Make team. She is an industrial designer (TU Delft) and graduated at Studio Pauline van Dongen with an intelligent denim jacket called Issho. Isabel researched intelligent clothing and the influence garments have on the way we experience our surroundings. For three years, she worked as an innovation and production manager within the circular textile industry, where she led the process of recycling textile waste into new products. This is why, at Waag, she is involved in the TextileLab and focuses on projects such as shemakes and Reflow.
Isabel is interested in the role of designers in creating new practices, now that we live in a time in which we question existing structures of power and reform and re-evaluate all that we have created and learned. Next to this, she is drawn to making: to learn how things work by doing them.
