This year WAACS celebrates 22 year of design history. The dutch word ‘waaks’ stands for alert, watchful and vigilant. WAACS was founded during the early 1990s recession, it prospered during the burst of the dot com bubble in 2000 and is again thriving in the current chilly financial climate. When the going gets tough the tough get going. This is a salute to original founders of the studio back in 1992. From left to right: Dienand Christe, Joost Alferink, Marcel Wanders and Joost van Alfen.
WAACS got featured in an article in MarketingTribune. The magazine had an interview with WAACS and Ferm about the process of designing the new design language and devices for the dutch powertool brand.

4 members of the WAACS Crew finished the Business Estafette Marathon Rotterdam in 3:54:57. With perfect view over the finish from our balcony we saw Eleni finish. With 4 medals in the pocket and aching muscles we look back at a wonderful day and a great experience … Rotterdamn we’re fast!…
Yet again, Waacs’ famous panorama view of Rotterdam will make it to national television: this time we had a visit from VARA’s crew shooting the neighbouring City hall and Coolsingel for the documentary De Strijd.

While the technology has existed for many years on desktop and laptop machines there did not appear to be a way of presenting a 3D model of a project using a smartphone or tablet. To present our models to clients and other designers we start using the eDrawings Augmented Reality (AR) tool from Solidworks. This is the go-to solution to show full assemblies and parts at full scale on the table directly in front of you.
The HotTug is designed by our friend Frank de Bruijn at Supergoed. During the International Film Festival Rotterdam the WAACS team watched some films in the floating hottub in the Rotterdam harbour.
