Outside silence ... Dr Reon Brand

Dr Reon Brand is the perfect iStart2 ambassador. Not only is he an expert on sustainability issues, but he is also a remarkable artist. Reon is Senior Director, Future Directions at Philips Design in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. His primary role is to work with multiple Philips stakeholders to explore future directions for the Philips Strategic Company Innovation program.

Dr Brand was born in Cape Town, South Africa and graduated with a Ph.D. in Microbiology from the University of Cape Town. We chat about future sustainability - or what he calls "regeneration" and his art, which takes inspiration from Picasso and Dali amongst others in a vibrant display of passion and creativity. Reon shares some of his expectations about a future world, lessons learnt from his work in China and he offers personal insights into his world as an artist.
