22 Years of WAACS history

By | design history | No Comments

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.

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.
