In addition to the Förderpreis Design, the SDA Award was also presented again in 2022. Two dissertation projects each from the Bachelor’s specializations of Industrial Design, Trends & Identity and Interaction Design were nominated for the «Bachelor Awards» of the Swiss Design Association (SDA). Linus Maurmann convinced the jury with his project «Neurospot» which he developed together with Janosch Imhof (ETHZ). The award comes with CHF 500 prize money.
- «Neurospot» is a brain wave measuring device for the treatment of sleep disorders. The device is worn during periods of rest and continuously measures the energy potential in the ear canal trigged by brain activity. In this way, the sleep process is reconstructed in real time and influenced, when necessary, by acoustic simulation.
