At Design Interviews

(Excerpt) Interview with Tinne Debruijne : Frank Scott: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?. Tinne Debruijne : Saying goodbye to someone precious. The pain The sadness The sudden absence and total void. Unanswered questions and fear of the unknown. "I still have so much to tell you." .Frank Scott: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?. Tinne Debruijne : The focus is on the ‘unspoken words’ in this collection of urns, through which those left behind have the chance of giving the deceased a last message. Unsaid. Unexpressed. Words, feelings, promises. Now brought to life in the intimacy of this piece of art. The portrait distinguishes the identity of the receptacle containing the ashes. A lasting and personal manner to remind those who have meant so much to us. .Frank Scott: What are your future plans for this award winning design?. Tinne Debruijne : Selling internationally and establishing a broad network. .Frank Scott: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?. Tinne Debruijne : 13 years from 1st idea to complete quality production and finding good partners. .Frank Scott: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?. Tinne Debruijne : It grew from a personal experience, in which a young woman's sorrow and the words ‘there is so much I still want to tell you’ had such a deep impact on me and moved me to the very core. I started designing a range of personalised urns to yet capture these words soon after. .Frank Scott: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?. Tinne Debruijne : I work together with '3dmatic' to produce the urns. I keep all copyrights in every stage of the design and production. .Frank Scott: What made you design this particular type of work?. Tinne Debruijne : A personal experience of loosing a beloved one made me search for a more personalized and more beautiful ash urn. I discovered that there is a huge demand from funeral companies for contemporary designs. They need new and modern ideas. Most of the urns look the same and lack creativity and design. My urns are about celebrating someone's life. .Frank Scott: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?. Tinne Debruijne : No, no other designers influenced my work. .Frank Scott: Who is the target customer for his design?. Tinne Debruijne : People who want something precious, personalized, a beautiful piece of art for there beloved one. .Frank Scott: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?. Tinne Debruijne : This design is completely personalized. These last words between the deceased and the people left behind. In Belgium and in other parts of Europe people want to have the ash urn at the ceremony itself. 3D printing technology makes it possible to be there since we can print in a couple of hours. So, emotionally it's very important to be present at the funeral, it helps in the mourning process. .Frank Scott: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?. Tinne Debruijne : UNSPOKEN WORDS: The focus is on the ‘unspoken words’ in this collection of urns, through which those left behind have the chance of giving the deceased a last message. Unsaid.

Later on I used Illustrator and my wheel to develop and research the right proportions and techniques. .Frank Scott: What is the most unique aspect of your design?. Tinne Debruijne : Personalization and the simple double shape, it creates a space of intimacy where all the tenderness and love that those who remain feel for the departed person is modestly expressed. .Frank Scott: Who did you collaborate with for this design?
