Philips Floorcare



During my apprenticeship at the Function Development department in Philips Floorcare (Drachten) my mission was to design a new type of 'quick floor cleaning device'.

In this journey, I discovered and developed novel working principles for picking up course dirt from hard floors, resulting in intellectual property.

International patents

During this apprenticeship I had the chance to work on new concepts and working principles, supervised by Bas De Wit in the department managed by Ted Pajak. This process has resulted in two international patents: EP3427624A1 and EP3488753A1.
