Alice Mela

Interaction & industrial designer

Alice designs highly interactive experiences for museums, exhibitions, events, and spaces. She completed her education with a master in design for interaction from Delft University of Technology and started her career in the Netherlands, creating the most conducive contexts for people to have fun and learn something new in science centers around the world.

One day, she stepped into Amsterdam’s FabLab and found a haven where she would spend all of her free time – learning CNC prototyping well enough she taught digital fabrication techniques at the Willem De Kooning Academie for two years in Rotterdam. In 2011, Philips patented a new LED lighting system under her name. She admittedly came to TODO because we let her tinker with ideas, electricity, lasercutting, and all kinds of materials to create real, physical outputs for people to experience.
