    Consume/d: Konsumtionssamhället visualiserat2017Independent thesis Basic level (Higher Education Diploma (Fine Arts)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I det här projektet har jag som mål att bryta ner och visualisera ämnet konsumtionssamhälle med hjälp utav motion design. Mitt syfte är att skapa förståelse, diskussion och väcka tankar kring ett samhälle som ofta tas för givet. Genom research letar jag efter starka koncept att visualisera, jag bryter ner ämnet i tre kategorier (varför, effekter, lösningar). Resultatet är ett antal animationer som ska kunna ses individuellt eller som en helhet. Jag redovisar min process och återkopplar till projektet.

    Projektet Elda: Ett typsnitt och en undersökande arbetsprocess2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet Elda är ett undersökande arbete om det digitala verktyget och vilka kvalitets- aspekt det påverkar. Datorn som ett kreativt hjälpmedel inom formgivning är i dag ett självklart verktyg i designprocessen, men vad händer egentligen med designers personliga avtryck när formen blir digital? Undersökningsmetoden i detta subjektiva projekt är em- pirisk och består av designprocessen bakom typsnittet Elda, under hela projektets gång reflekterar jag tankar, form och litteratur mot varandra. Diskussionen består av min syn på den digitala grafiska produkten, yrkets egenvärde och mänsklig kommunikation.

    Bordet och compact living: Effektiv yta i små lägenheter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Målet med detta projekt har varit att underlätta växlingen mellan arbete och vila för de som bor litet och arbetar i hemmet. Bakgrunden till detta är att vi idag har en stark bostadsbrist i Sverige och att det kommer behöva byggas fler små lägenheter. Produkter som är anpassade för mindre boyta kommer därför behöva tillverkas.

    Research har varit en stor del i projektet och innefattar användarundersökningar, compact living, bordets historia och hållbar produktion.

    Slutresultatet har blivit ett bord som passar till både arbete och återhämtning med möjlighet till miljöombyte och förvaring. Bordet består utav två bordskivor som användaren kan nyttja. Grundtanken är att användaren ska ha möjlighet att förvara sitt arbete utan att behöva plocka undan någonting och då fritt kunna använda den övre bordsskivan.

    Min förhoppning är att bordet får en lång livslängd och fungerar för olika livssituationer samt att användaren knyter an till produkten. Detta utifrån en hållbarhetsaspekt och som motreaktion mot konsumtionens slit-och-släng beteende.

    Skifte: Ett atbete om föremåls värdeförändring och återupptäckande2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Nybro Bostads AB efterfrågade en utsmyckning av området kring deras nybyggnation av bostads området Grönskog. Jag såg en möjlighet att kombinera deras önskemål med att uppmärksamma de boende samt förbi passerande på ett av våra största problem för att skapa ett hållbart samhälle; de växande sopbergen samt utarmande konsumtion.

          Idag använder vi oss av föremål för att manifestera vår identitet. Vi kastar och köper nytt som aldrig förr, utan att fundera på varför vi ser somliga föremål vi redan har som skräp. Genom att skapa en ”bytarplattform” i Grönskogs miljöhus vill jag uppmärksamma de boende på att det föremål som blivit till skräp för dem, fortfarande kan ha ett värde för någon annan. På ”bytarplattformen” kan du ställa dit och ta de föremål du vill, det skapar en subtil interaktion mellan de boende i området.

          När de boende kliver in i miljöhuset står de inför valet av den box vars färg och form i samverkan med valet av boxens placering i rummet syftar till att på bästa sätt framhäva föremålet. De måste återupptäcka värdet i föremålet. Boxarna placeras in i de små fönstren och väggens tjocklek skapar hyllplanet. Fönstren är placerade i ett vågmönster och genom ljusflödet skapas ett sammanhang mellan rummet och omgivningen. Det blir ett skyltfönster för de boendes bidrag till ett mer hållbart samhälle.

    Abstract [en]

    More and more companies today choose to design their offices after an activity based principle. It is known that the open landscapes creates problems when fewer can concentrate. However, the activity based office solves many of the previously problems, since you can change the location after your work.

    Love, Growth together: Service design for a sustainable lifestyle2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays, millennials living in megacities are facing numerous issues. Most of them are currently experiencing an unsustainable lifestyle. Since this social group is destined to grow in number in the future years, its living status will strongly affect the development of sustainable cities. High frequency relocation, limited savings and lack of time are some of the Millennials’ main issues. Create appropriate solutions to their problems is therefore crucial for a sustainable development. The project aims to investigate Millennials daily life conditions through a human-needs approach performing and, at the same time analyze the possible business-based services that can help this social group to live more sustainable. This has been done through three needs-based service design methodologies that allowed to identify the reasons behind this social phenomenon: a day in life, questionnaires and phone interviews. Furthermore, a co-creation workshop allowed to investigate possible interactions between businesses realities and millennials.

    This project results demonstrate that there is a need of Business to Customers services which can contribute at the same time to create a sustainable lifestyle and to reduce the environmental impact of the contemporary consumerism-based society. Finally a concept of a product-based reuse service is for this reason developed considering the role of product life cycle in contemporary sustainable issues. To conclude, the importance of a needs-base approach to generate innovative solutions within the topic of service design is highlighted.

    The Future Is Present: Designing Time for Sustainable Change2017In: 11th International Conference on Design Principles & Practices: Design for the Global Village, Champaign, IL: Common Ground Research Networks , 2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In matters of teaching design for sustainable change, we are still in a situation that requires us to break new ground. New sets of tools, methods, and criteria are needed. One important criterion is the aspect of temporality. Not thinking about design's long-term effects, pushing acceleration, and neglecting the future have been a major cause of our unsustainable present. Still time is not commonly addressed in design education. To work with time offers several exciting possibilities. One is to extend the focus onto the entire life cycle of an artefact, exploring technical solutions and systems; another is to address aspects of planning for an unpredictable future. The third, which is at the core of my research, is to focus on design as a process rather than an object, and to design time itself. Design is what it makes possible, what it allows for, not what shape or finish it has. My research, which taken place through work with students and staff at the Department of Design, hopes to inspire new ways of working with sustainability within design educations.

    Pedagogy for teaching design – with an emphasis on sustainable design2013In: Design learning for tomorrow: design education from kindergarten to PhD, 2013, 1451-1465 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching sustainability is not solely a question of providing relevant information; it is foremost about training students to meet the challenges of tomorrow. In design this can mean to shift the focus from material, form and function towards systems, correlation and time – a process supported both by how we teach as well as what we teach. But pedagogy still seems to be treated like a poor cousin to the more important design knowledge. This  made us curious about the correlation between pedagogy and teaching design for sustainable change.

    By applying a study of Eilam and Trop (2011) onto the curriculum of an undergraduate design programme and through interviews with students we investigated the underlying pedagogy. Eilam and Trop had identified four pedagogical components that supported a holistic learning experience in their study.

    It proves more fruitful to incorporate sustainability wholeheartedly in a programme, instead of teaching it as a separate course. Pedagogies like emotional learning in realistic design projects and multidimensional learning in theoretical courses support an education for sustainable change and prepare students to meet the challenges of tomorrow without missing their professional  development.

    Fika Living: A sharing multifunctional furniture for single person households2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The start point of this project is the research of single person household. According to a presentation from the Swedish government, in Sweden, the family structure is changing as time goes by. After 40 years, there will be more than 40% of household are single person households.

    In addition, The project aims to create a sharing furniture, which used in living room, for young single person households. By using this furniture, they can enjoy the time being alone at home and also enjoy the leisure time with others, for example, through the Swedish social phenomena - fika.

    The delineation of study and research of my project is furniture design towards single person households and fika. The theories I applied include sustainability, life cycle, human needs, and design methodologies.

    Sustainable design put sustainable development theory into the design process, let the ecological environment and economic development connected as an the reciprocal causation. It lead to the use of energy resources effectively, and reduce the environmental pollution to the lower degree.

    To achieve sustainable design theory, each steps within product life cycle need to be considered in a sustainable development way. Sustainable design principles not only refer to the design process, also stressed in engineering process, the production process, the sales process, the use process, the storage process, the maintenance/repair process and retirement process, to reduce resource consumption, to build a new production and consumption oriented concepts to achieve sustainable design.

    The main practical methodology within the entire project and process is participatory design. Participatory design encourages all the users to directly design by using the simple tools, then do creative jobs by themselves and make own improvements during the process of practice. Furthermore, the participatory design can promote the users to realize the true value of designers, and finally they can also enjoy the conveniences which are brought by these designs.

    Designing sustainable innovations: Opportunities for new life cycles within the furniture industry2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Linear Economy cannot any longer be sustained by the eco-system: virgin resources are limited and destined to terminate soon if the contemporary production and consumption model will be maintained. For this reason, in the last few years Circular Economy has become an increasingly discussed topic worldwide. Through the adoption of strategies that close-the-loop of the traditional linear production system, Circular Economy aims to find solutions that can create a balance between economy, society and environment. This study aims to provide a holistic overview on the main theories and strategies that can ease a business transition to a Circular Economy model, to analyse challenges and opportunities connected to this conversion and to present a concrete tool developed for this purpose. The Life Cycle Design theory is here discussed and contextualised within the furniture industry reality since this study has been executed in collaboration with IKEA, the company case study of this thesis. An academic and professional literature review have been performed in order to gather information about theory and practice related to the implementation of strategies needed by a Circular Economy: product disassembly, recovery, reuse, refurbish, recycle and remanufacturing. The professional literature reviewed point out that the implementation of a circular model can lead to economic advantages and growth’s opportunities for manufacturers in various economic sectors. The implementation of Circular Economy in the furniture industry seems to be in its early stages and it mainly focus, with few exception, on recycling rather than on the more effective reuse, refurbish or remanufacturing operations. This study points out the two main issues that the furniture manufacturers need to solve in order to enable the implementation of more effective circular strategies: product disassembly and recovery. Furthermore, the need of an innovative and holistic approach is discussed with particular emphasis on the importance of a systemic thinking that enable organisation to create their own identity and objectives in relation to the Circular Economy model. The importance of a system that connects and coordinate the sustainable efforts and aims for new products and services is therefore highlighted, suggested and deeply considered in the development of the tool proposed. To conclude, a comparison between two IKEA products (the sofas Söderhamn and Knopparp) was performed to identify the role of the products’ design and development in relation with the implementation of a Circular Economy model. The products were briefly technically analysed and then a comparison between a linear and a circular end-of-life cycle scenario has been represented.

    Syftet med detta examensprojekt har varit att ta fram en ny typ av flytvästlåda som skall brukas inom sjöindustrin. Utgångspunkten har varit ett samarbete med två studenter från sjöfartskolan. Mina samarbetspartners behövde hjälp att utveckla iden om en flytvästlåda som kollapsar under ytan och släpper upp flytvästarna till ytan vid en förlisning till havs. Detta med hjälp av en hydrostatisk frigörare

     

    I min process har jag gjort observationer på vilken roll flytvästlådan har på fartyg idag, hur den används, var den står och hur den förhåller sig till andra typer av säkerhetsutrustning. Jag har även tittat på hur en människa fungerar och handlar i en nödsituation och vilka behov som behöver uppfyllas.

    Andra metoder som jag har använt har varit intervjuer med personer som arbetar med säkerhetsfrågor på fartyg och ITK (Identity Tool Kit) för att ytterligare få förståelse för hur lådan behöver utformas.

     

    Resultatet blev en flytvästlåda där inspiration har hämtats dels från räddningsutrustning såsom livbåtar, livbojar, brandutrustning och dels från den marina miljön ombord på ett fartyg. Flytvästlådan är ett svar på behovet av att snabbt kunna identifiera var man hittar flytvästar i en nödsituation. Lådan ska betraktas som en del av säkerhetsutrustningen snarare än en plats för förvaring av den. Genom att tydligare synliggöra att det finns flytvästar ombord samt genom att vara tydlig med var de finns kan känslan av trygghet ombord ökas för passagerare och besättningsmän.

    Quadro: Sidobordet som blev podium för identitet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In my senior project I work with the unseen furniture: the side table. The name, Quadro, is a combination of the italian word quattro that means four and the latin word ”quadratum” or ”quadratus.”  After conducting an analysis of different side tables, I concluded that the side table's function is primarily to elevate other artifacts. I draw connections to the creation of identity through consumption and have created a sidetble through combining furniture design and conceptual design. The project was finalized with a survey to see if identity is visible through the selection of artifacts.

    Reasons of the Heart: Art and the shaping of modern politics2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the advent of what Germain Bazin famously described as the “museum age”, many have argued  that “art”, as a mode of creative production rooted in aesthetics, has become increasingly rarified, institutionalized and entangled in the politics and sociology of taste, making it a poor medium for critical appraisal of social or political issues. Drawing primarily on the history of the development of modern art, Terry Eagleton’s thesis on the advent of the aesthetic as a philosophical category advanced in The Ideology of the Aesthetic, and modern theories of mind which root rationality in the senses, I will argue that, notwithstanding the undisputed “entertainment” value of art, and its commercialization, the differentiation between aesthetic-­‐artistic knowledge and rational-­‐scientific knowledge might not be so simple to sustain, and that art thus serves a fundamental, if often unnoticed function in shaping social and political values in the contemporary world.

    Aja Baja Bu: Trygghetsbelysning för barn2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this project I’ve worked with the brand Kid´s Concept where their brief were for me to develop an innova ve lamp that would dis nguish itself from their current ligh ng products. Through research and sketching the inten on of the project became to develop lamps that would favour children suff ering from night terrors. The concept is a lamp that sleeps during the day but stays awake at night and fi ghts montsters. Aja Baja Bu is a lamp that helps the child feel safe while the playful expression of the lamp encourages children to interact with it. The two characters are open for imagina on and makes it possible for children to create their own stories about them. During the day Aja Baja Bu will be exhausted from staying up all night and the child must restore its energy by giving it its magical crown or horn. Thus the child will feel connected and gain trust in the characters.

    Abstract [sv]

    Som examensarbete på Linneuniversitetets produktdesign program vill jag utmana

    mig själv och göra något jag tidigare inte gjort, nämligen en sittmöbel. Jag själv är

    intresserad utav heminredning och började fundera över vilka faktorer det är som

    påverkar oss när vi inreder våra hem. Hur kan man avgöra om något är trendigt eller

    inte?

    How can design education support designers in their visionary work towards sustainability?2016In: Open Design for E-very-thing: exploring new design purposes, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this workshop is to create a space for synthesis and to build on the paper sessions on sustainability, with a focus on design education. What roles can designers play in the vision towards sustainability? What is required of design curricula, pedagogies, educators, academic institutions and wider partnerships to support students adopting these new or modi ed roles? The workshop aims to set an agenda for years to come and to create an ongoing ‘think and do-tank’. This interactive and action orientated workshop is led by an interdisciplinary group from the Cumulus network and the Cumulus working group for sustainability, representing European and Asian perspectives, and both theory and practice.

    This will be a three hour-long workshop with practical outcomes. Max: 30 participants.

    The workshop is structured in three consecutive sessions.

    1. The synthesis of insights from paper sessions & shared examples of best practices.

    2. The new designer roles at the intersection of curriculum, tradition and emerging socio-cultural, economic and ecological systems.

    3. Designing: prototypes for integrating relevant and applicable sustainability learning into the design curriculum and academic institutions.

    Outcome:

    Exhibits: 1. prototypes for sustainability learning in academic institutions and in our wider partnerships; and 2. an agenda proposal for a ‘think and do-tank’ for ongoing Cumulus conferences.

    Abstract [en]

    If you imagine how numerous we are and multiply that by the number of outfits we have, that makes many billion garments… and yet how much do we know about our clothes? What can we say about the relationships we have with the contents of our wardrobe? What do we know about the principles embodied by our garments or their longevity? Is there a garment that promotes an ecological awareness that transforms our relationships with materials and our experience of the world? In this short paper, we introduce new ideas about the lifetimes of fashion clothing that question not only the status quo in mainstream industry but also that in the eco-clothing sector.

     

    We think the connection between fashion clothes and rhythms of time is crucial because of its implications for ecological thinking and sustainability. For too long the chief response of environmentalists to questions of fashion obsolescence of clothes has been simply that it is unnecessary and that it should not happen. But this neglects the power and influence of fashion and the complexity and subtlety of the relationship between fashion, clothing and consumers over time.

     

    From a time-based perspective, different users, different patterns of use and different fashion levels inform the design. The result is a more diverse, more rhythmic, more ecological response. Our approach proposes that we acknowledge that fashion and clothes are not identical, although their use and looks sometimes coincide. It engages with consumer-garment interaction as an important part of the fashion cycle - both in terms of driving the fashion cycle and in terms of environmental impact. We believe that in order to achieve more ecological practices in the fashion and clothing industry, we must understand and use the rhythm of fashion, the dialogue between our clothing, ourselves and the zeitgeist.

    Abstract [en]

    The clothing industry employs 25 million people globally contributing to many livelihoods and the prosperity of communities, to women’s independence, and the establishment of significant infrastructures in poorer countries. Yet the fashion industry is also a significant contributor to the degradation of natural systems, with the associated environmental footprint of clothing high in comparison with other products.Routledge Handbook of Sustainability and Fashion recognizes the complexity of aligning fashion with sustainability. It explores fashion and sustainability at the levels of products, processes, and paradigms and takes a truly multi-disciplinary approach to critically question and suggest creative responses to issues of:• Fashion in a post-growth society• Fashion, diversity and equity• Fashion, fluidity and balance across natural, social and economic systemsThis handbook is a unique resource for a wide range of scholars and students in the social sciences, arts and humanities interested in sustainability and fashion.

    Boo, vilken dag!: Upplevelser som transperson i det heteronormativa rummet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The following project is an illustrative book project about life as transgender in Sweden. The project touches the problematic situations that often occur in everyday life for transgender people in heteronormative spaces, based on the norm of two biological sexes. The result is a ”pixi book” about Boo, a non-binary trans person, during a typical day in their life. During the day Boo faces several different scenarios and questions, based on real events, resulting in a limitation of life quality and living space. The purpose with the project is to give insight in what it is like to live as trans in Sweden today, and to make the reader aware of what kind of questions we ask, how and why we ask them.
