Graduation Show 2016

Presenting at the Dutch Design Week has already been such a great experience. After taking so many pictures and talking about te Boxolab to so many people the meaning of the camera has changed a lot. It’s truely amazing to see people smile when their pictures appears on the photopaper. The product presentation centres around that close interaction with people when they have their pictures taken or look at the video screen to have a look on the inside of the boxolab. I’ve gotten a lot of positive reaction and a lot of new ideas. Thank you so much. 3 more days to go. I’m looking forward to it!
