As a conceptual thinker and a special interest in healthcare design, Rees finds solutions with a poetic touch. She graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2017 with twenty concepts to humanise the hospital. The concepts concerned communication, mobility, atmosphere, mental distraction and balance.
Rees was the winner of the Accenture innovation Award 2017 and the innovation- and best overall prize on the Brains Award 2017, with her project ‘IV-Walk’, a portable IV-pole that stimulates mobility in hospitals. She presented her work in cities as Milan, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam and Las Vegas.
Next to her conceptual thinking, she has a multidisciplinary interest in movies that express the peculiar behaviour of the human being, radio making and prose stories. She is able translate complex matter into sensitive concepts for a broader audience. Rees likes to give personal layers to her projects.
‘Simple thoughts and ignored emotions are my biggest inspiration, I design for the ten seconds moment of believing that we are in the right place’
