Master "Design Interactions" Royal College of Art


I can say without any hesitation that the two years I spent studying “Design Interactions” at the Royal College of Arts in London have been two of the most intellectually stimulating years of my life. And a yam eternally grateful to the two lead designers, intellectuals, and professors who created this environment, built a team of fantastic mentor for us.

The most selective design program in the most selective design school in the world was a very special place to study. The people that were selected, and that graduated went on doing industry-defining experiments. The list of alumni is below.

It is a huge loss for the Royal College of Arts to have lost two of its brightest designers and design theorists.

Below is a list of projects I have done as a student:

→ That won the Ars Electronica Golden Nica

→ That led to many workshops

Nano Skincare

Haya Diving Bell, Scotland

While being a student at the RCA I was the assistant of the architect Usman Haque:

Design Interactions alumni list


Not a publication in the classic sense, but I was lacking a better place.

The Design Interactions department at the Royal College of Art led by Anthony Dunne accepted students from 2006 to 2014, leading to some 150 M.A. graduations.

The tutors and students of this department have been influential in coining the design world’s understanding of Critical Design, Speculative Design and Design Fiction in these years and still continue to set impulses. The approach of the course was different in the sense that it was not so much geared towards normative impact and persuasion of the public but instead showed a high interest in more subtle and multi-perspective forms of empathy for other forms of society, technology and ethics.

Since the original RCA Design Interaction website was shut down a while ago I found it’s worth setting up a list to collect the names and websites of the alumni as a hub for historical research or simply to catch up on what these people have been up to in the meanwhile.

This list comes without any guarantee. If you spot something incorrect/missing or want to be removed from the list please drop me a line.
