Marlou Rutten is a product designer currently based in Amsterdam. She graduated from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in 2017.

‘’As a designer I research the poetic value of the invisible that goes unnoticed by our sen­ses. By creating instruments that translate and register natural phenomena in unconventio­nal ways I attempt to broaden the experience of our sense perception.’’
