Jonas Hauptman

Co-Founder, Assistant Professor of Industrial Design

MFA, Cranbrook
Jonas Hauptman’s work is focused on fundamentally reshaping the ways that we design and manufacture products and buildings. His work intertwines novel digital technologies with lightweight, biological, and bio-inspired materials toward intelligent responses to human needs that generate net positive ecological impacts.
His current research focuses largely on rethinking building with bamboo, and he has integrated his research discovery with student learning and service to higher education and the broader community. His collaborations have gained the attention of nationally published design press and contributed to the discourse on varied forms of practice, sustainable design, and design ethics within both the school and the design community.
Jonas has also been the co-founder of multiple startup companies including Seeyond which was acquired by 3Form. In 2019 his recent co-authored research was recognized as runner up for the Autodesk ACADIA Emerging Research Award for work supported by the American Institute of Architecture’s 2018 prestigious Upjohn Award.
