Company founder Frans de la Haye was involved with The Design Academy at Eindhoven in The Netherlands for over 15 years. As part-time Prof/Head, he directed the “Mobility” and “Essentials” departments and then joined the advisory board. De la Haye was also a “founding father” of the Technical University of Eindhoven’s Product Design faculty.

Most of DHLD’s successful projects started as an initiative of Frans de la Haye and were then developed into commercial products and services with industrial and commercial partners.
