    Förstudie - Ny glasgång för Kulturparken Småland: Hur kan transparent intelligens utnyttjas i en offentlig miljö?2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tankarna på att bygga en glasgång mellan Smålands museum och Utvandrarnas hus har funnits ett tag. När det kommunala fastighetsbolaget Vöfab köpte museibyggnaden av Stiftelsen Smålands museum i december 2014 och all mark mellan byggnaderna så var ett avgörande juridiskt hinder undanröjt. Nu fanns det möjlilghet att bygga en glasgång.

    Förstudiens mål är att synliggöra och tvärvetenskapligt undersöka möjligheterna att använda transparent intelligens vid gestaltning av en ny glasgång som ett tilltalande inslag i Växjös offentliga miljö.

    I rapporten beskrivs transparent intelligens och ger många exempel inklusive figurer, både på tekniker och också byggnader. I rapporten berättas också omkonstnärlig gestaltning och utmanande arkitektur, materialet glas beskrivs både ingenjörsmässigt och designmässigt.

    Förstudien visar vilka möjligheter det finns att använda transparent intelligens när en offentlig byggnad ska byggas, men också vilka begränsningar (t.ex. ljud, ljus, värme, kyla, underhållsvänlighet, teknik). En litteratursökning har visat att det finns byggnader som fungerar som en dekoration samtidigt som det har en funktion, i en offentlig miljö.

    I och med att det händer mycket inom området intelligent transparens så byggs det nya prototyper med den senaste tekniken eller en gammal teknik som används på ett nytt sätt. Inom Smart Housing Småland görs det nya prototyper i samarbete med industrin, som kan visas upp i glasgången, om den blir verklighet. Detta gör att allmänheten får ta del av den senaste tekniken inom intelligent transparens.

    Återbruksbyn: Grafiskt arbete som identifierar Återbruksbyn i Växjö2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project is about creating a graphic identity and profile for Återbruksbyn, Växjö. Återbruksbyn is a project created by Växjö municipality and the cooperative Macken, and it is about building a central space and meeting point for people who want to buy, sell, exchange, give away and reuse old products instead of throwing them away. It is a place that focuses on circular economy and wants to introduce this alternative system to the people of Växjö. My role and purpose with this project has been to analyse Återbruksbyn and its values, and through that, create a graphic identity that reflects these values and goals. This is my process.

    En ärvbar möbel för barn2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Begreppet ärvbarhet handlar om en strävan att ge produkter möjlighet till en lång livscykel. En ärvbar artefakt kan gå i arv från storebror till lillasyster, från kusin till granne, från vuxen till barn. Projektets mål har varit att skapa en förvaringsmöbel för barn i hemmiljö med en hög ärvbarhet och och en tydlig identitet utifrån företaget Unis formspråk och värderingar. Produktens kvalité, funktion och formspråk tillsammans med den mening vi tillskriver artefakten gör att den värdesätts högre och låter den få ett längre liv. Resultatet är en förvaringsmöbel i form av en stiliserad elefant som kan ändras efter ålder och behov och följa med barnet upp i vuxen ålder. En möbel som passar lika bra i barnrummets fria tankevärld som i den vuxnes hall.

    Speculative futures of sustainable communities: Utilizing the resources of collective living to speculate sustainable futures.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this report is to speculate how our neighborhoods could look like in the future, looking at modern collective living due to the housing crisis is Sweden today. This paper will look att different forms of collective housing, to challenge the conventional way of living. Connecting sustainability to the act of sharing space and resources, in creating a collaborative lifestyle.

    The research methods used in this speculative project looks at three case studies of collective housing to analyse and define different levels of sharing. During the design process one intervention was executed to challenging the norm of ownership, questioning what the act of sharing demands.

    The goal of this project is to change assumptions of collective living by rethinking space. To create an interlaced community, with hopes of becoming more resilient. The research and its findings worked along- side the report and developed into a zine. The zine was made with key insights from the study, as a tool to communicate the design proposal and can easily be distributed to the Swedish population.

    Ageing & ingenuity: what is your design story?2013In: Nordes 2013 Online proceedings / [ed] Eva Brandt, Pelle Ehn, Troels Degn Johansson, Maria Hellström Reimer, Thomas Markussen and Anna Vallgårda, Copenhagen: The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts , 2013, p. 471-472Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This collective design workshop aims to provoke and test new design approaches towards ageing. We are looking for design stories/narratives that show how design thinking and collaborative working can enable the world to respond differently to the challenges of ageing. Can designers change our inherent ageism through the engagement of older people in the design and delivery of services and products with them? Can we change our current strategies towards ageing, turning its potential challenges into opportunities to engage, empower and improve the lives of the elderly? Together, we aim to build a collective design approach with ingenious older people and for our future selves.

    CIRCULAR ECONOMY NOW00: How can a tool stimulate Circular Economy whereby the product development stage will be guided towards less waste generation?2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The government has made a choice to call a halt to climate change and has defined concrete milestones that everyone can use in practical terms, but the practical and knowledge side is still lacking within society. There is still no unambiguous approach for circular economy. Unfortunately, no manual is ready yet to take the steps towards 2050. The best advice to give is to start with awareness: making known to the general public. This step is a first step towards 100% circular economy. The greatest effect of circularity of a product must be realized in the design phase. Aspects such as maintenance, flexibility in use and adaptability, disassembly possibilities and the usability at end of life is determined by the design. The choice of materials what a product consists of is also important here. For this, the researcher sought a solution that supports these two important pillars. Circularity is a complex subject and there is a need to convert this complex language whereby this language becomes more intelligible to the daily users, architects, designers and product developers. Making circularity measurable, on the basis of product information from the supplier, the tool calculates the degree of circularity. The focus of the tool lies in the calculation of the impact of its materials and the amount of waste generated during the entire journey of the product. The results of the tool is named PICI© and can be compared with the certification techniques of today, except this one is circular-proof, while almost all of the certifications has been developed within a linear economy. Today's certificates will have to make room for the circularity certificates of the future. In addition, this study will also provide a direction for a circular methodology that will fully support the transition towards a circular service or product development.

    This research has the aim to make manufacturers, designers, architects or product developers aware what the impact of their product is, whereby the material-decision-making process will be striving for a fully circular  products and the re-use of the those materials.  This tool can motivate and make this impact of waste more visible. On top of that, this tool has a special focus on urban and architectural lighting, due to the collaboration with Spectrum advice and Design, in the Netherlands. Therefore, a case study is included within this study from Hydro Aluminum who supported this research with real-end data.

    Lav Förening: Service design: lichen study, farm innovation and enterprise framework for re-active rural cultural landscape2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    I start this project as my master degree project which is the last assignment during my graduate education in Sweden. I own the bachelor degree in industrial design which is the beginning I ponder in a designer’s way. With the accumulation of my knowledge and study, I am willing to attempt different design fields in sustainable perspective, like product design, furniture design, exhibition design and service design. The working and study experiences provide valuable resources for me to recognize self. And the environment in Swedish society also is a school to acquire knowledge and know the world. The project, Lav Förening, was born in these contexts.

     

    The main study fields: Rural depopulation was addressed as a global issues in economical, ecological, socio-political and cultural contexts in sustainability perspectives. The rural economic stagnation can be restore by government policy support. However, the disappearance of cultural landscape would cause irreversible loss. With case studies and fieldwork in Varshult, I define my study field in service design involving lichen study, farm innovation and enterprise framework for re-active rural cultural landscape. It is a proposal, through figuring out local renewable resource (lichen) and integrating stakeholders’ framework, to create an attractive community for rural part-time residents and young active citizens to participate. In order to complete the concept, there are six fields need to be study: depopulation and sustainable rural development, cultural landscape, lichen and essential oil, community agriculture and Boda Glass Factory.

     

    The major findings of my study:  The service in this project is human centered. Through studying Maslow's hierarchy of needs, I analyze the needs of my target group. For the target group in Lav Förening, rural part-time residents and young active citizens, they have a good living conditions and enough spare time for their interests and pursuits. For the organizers and land owners, we are concerning the social phenomenon, rural depopulation, and we devote ourselves to figure out the opportunities to solve the problems and keep the rural cultural landscape alive. We pursue a higher level of psychological, belonging, esteem and self-actualization needs. There are six programs on lichen journey based on the needs study: Varshult visiting & lichen planting, bottles making, lichen collection essential oil extraction & tincture making, handmade workshop and market & exhibition. The proposal will be presented with visualizations and evidences.

     

    The Lav Förening service proposal need to be refined continually. It shows an opportunity to oppose rural depopulation in design field. It is a practice for me to analyze a complicated framework and present it. The design process and report have recorded the development and exploration on my design study.

    Maintaining tooth brushing habit: A service design to motivate young people in Sweden2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden has a complete public oral hygiene system while there are still problems existing on young people which are caused by their individual habits. In the research, the main reason was found having connections with lack of daily tooth brushing. With the development design for behavior change, this research was trying to find how design can change when it was related to young people’s oral care behavior at home. As a result, a service design concluding a reward system was put forward to motivate young people to maintain a good tooth brushing habit.

    En musikproducents roll: En undersökning av en musikproducents roll i en musikproduktion2018Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ordet musikproducent finns inte i den svenska akademins ordbok, vilket tyder på att en musikproducents roll inte heller finns fastställt någonstans i akademin. Detta är grunden till ämnet i detta examensarbete, just om att definiera en musikproducents roll, att dokumentera en sådan roll som är vitt spridd åt många olika håll inom en musikproduktion.

    Syftet med arbetet var att finna tydliga roller inom rollen som musikproducent och att också få en förståelse om vilka bakgrunder som kan leda till att bli en sådan. De metoder som använts för att fullfölja detta arbete var dels två intervjuer med två erfarna musikproducenter i närområdet av Gävle, som tydligt gav en bild av deras uppfattning om musikproducenters roll, tack vare deras år av erfarenhet inom ämnet. Det användes också litteratur från Richard James Burgess, Andrew Blake med flera, inom ämnet musikproduktion. Detta resulterade i att en slutsats drogs om att musikproducentens roll inte är fast vid en konstant arbetsuppgift utan att den rollen är flexibel och är aldrig den andre musikproduktionen lik.

    Localisation and Education: A tool for building futures2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Teachers, locals, a designer, communities, students, materials and co-design are the resources of this written report. These elements have tried to find a balance between each other during the process to stimulate the core of the project: a sustainable future in the local community of Älmhult. Starting of through of changing the global perspective of education to a more local sharing-learning experiences, the project made a turn to focus more on a problematic community namely that of Älmhult, Sweden. This local community has in the recent years changed dramatically because of growth in population and cultures. The community in which international and local do not mingle enough, has split. Instead of using these possibilities of learning from each other’s cultures and languages they have decided to live in mostly separate communities. Through the course of this project a network was built of people from both these communities to start building a stronger community in Älmhult. Education has been used as tool to stimulate this change, bringing the local community to the students. Teaching the students about strong communities they are the tool to develop this into the future. Thereby the student is the seed of change. The project has worked with co-design, using the tools to connect teachers and local initiators to create these meetings between student and local community. The research can be a learning tool to build communities, by using the knowledge of its inhabitants.

    Caring Design Experiments in the Aftermath2019In: Nordes 2019: Who Cares?: Proceedings of the 8th Bi-Annual Nordic Design Research Society Conference - Who Cares? 2-4th of June 2019 Finland, Espoo: Nordic Design Research , 2019, p. 1-9Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We live in the aftermath of industrial design, which primarily has been guided by a focus on making the new. Through the project Un/Making Soil Communities, carried out where glass production has left pollution in the soil, the authors propose caring design experiments which aim to foster maintenance and repair for livable worlds. In this articulation, the authors draw on democratic design experiments (Binder et al 2015), but propose a shift from gathering around matters-of-concern (Latour 2005) to matters-of-care (Puig de la Bellacasa 2017). Furthermore, caring design experiments also entail engaging with big enough stories (Haraway 2016) through going visiting and continuously crafting invitations.

    Plastic Imaginaries2017In: continent., ISSN 2159-9920, Vol. 6.1, p. 62-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What practices can we imagine in this world where progress, novelty, and production of the new has been privileged to the extent that it has had profound impact on not only culture but also nature and how we understand the relationship between the two? Jackson has, for example, suggested practices of maintenance and repair as stories and orders that can handle the decay and breakdown of the 21st Century.[1]

    In the accompanying text, we imagine a conversation between the ragpicker and the composter that suggest different ways of living with transformation in the aftermath of a plastic era. When plastic materials started to be used they came with the modernist vision that technologies would rid us from restrictions posed by nature.[2] Plastic materials were used as alternatives to, for example, wood, glass and metal, which suggested a world without material scarcity. As a cheaper alternative they have often been used for disposable products meant for one-time-use only. And, at the same time as plastic is hard to mend, maintain and repair, due to the way it wears and tears, it generally doesn’t breakdown and decay as other non-industrial materials. Rather, it accumulates.[3]

    The text is a speculative fabulation,[4] but it draws on ethnographic material that has been produced during a series of public engagement events where we invited participants to explore two kinds of emerging hybrid matters that are related to plastics. The first hybrid matter is plastiglomerates,[5] which is a new kind of stone partly consisting of plastic debris coming from such varied sources such as fishing industry, leisure activities and mundane living. The second hybrid matter is common mealworms that can biodegrade Styrofoam.[6] In the first set of public engagement events, we invited people to walk along beaches in Finland and Iceland to look for plastiglomerates. In the second set of public engagement events, we invited people in Denmark and Sweden to use common mealworms to compost plastic waste in their home.

    C2C-sustainable service for express packaging2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The packaging waste has a huge impact on the environment and human health. It becomes worse because with the fast development of e-commerce, express industry is developed rapidly and the demands of package increase. The study explores an approach to decrease packaging waste from the C2C platform by encouraging buyers to recycle. Due to the different types of logistics service on B2C and C2C platforms, the situation is worse on the C2C platform. Additionally, the consumption of the C2C platform occupies most e-commerce market. Service design as the main design field provides a systematic and holistic design thinking to do the project. Literature review and case study are conducted to collect data. Improving consciousness of recycling for consumers has benefits to reduce packaging waste. Therefore, a deposit return service is proposed to encourage consumers to take recycling actions. It is a closed-cycle system which includes the whole life cycle of the express packaging.

    Airbnb and social environment in big cities2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to increase the sensitivity of foreign tourists who want to rent a flat on Airbnb and let tourists and households take their responsibility of Airbnb through explaining the relationship between Airbnb and social environments. In recent years, Airbnb has been one of the top choices for short-term accommodation renting. However, an issue needing to be cared about is subconsciously affecting the social environment, which is contrary to sustainable development. 

    The text can be divided into two parts. In the first part, the impact of Airbnb on the social environment of big cities will be analyzed from two aspects - sharing economy and gentrification. Social networks and the negative effects are the main content that will be discussed in sharing economy. At the same time, gentrification will respond to it through a typical case study in Barcelona. 

    In the second part, the design project will be analyzed in order to support my theoretical part. Critical design as the core element in my design projects will be analyzed through a communication plan. This plan will become my design proposal to realize the creation of a common network platform in order to attract more attention to this issue.

    Kan vi börja prata om mens nu, tack?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I mitt examensarbete har jag arbetat fram en glaskollektion med tema mens. Målet med mitt arbete var dels att höja mensen ur tabut, dels att ge bruksglaset en ny scen. Genom att göra en menskoppsbehållare i transparent glas vill jag ifrågasätta varför vi gömmer och smusslar med våra mensskydd men också varför mensen idag framställs som oren, äcklig och skamlig. Jag vill uppmuntra till att bryta det mönstret, ge den som menstruerar en möjlighet att hylla mensen, sätta den i fokus, på piedestal. Mitt arbete resulterade i ett mensaltare, en tolkning av hur jag tror mensen hade framställts om vi levt i ett matriarkat. Då hade den nog, med sin koppling till fruktbarhet, varit något heligt, något vi hyllat, nästan som något religiöst. 

    Jag har i mitt arbete fokuserat på att ta de konstnärliga och emotionella värden som finns i konstglaset och applicera dem på föremål som annars ses som mer av bruksföremål. Detta för att komma ifrån de praktiska värden som bruksglaset annars förknippas med. För att ge glaset en mer kontemporär förankring har jag arbetat med mens, och i förlängningen feminism, som tema. Detta är också en metod för att lyfta mensen ur tabut, för att låta den synas.

    A DESIGN CONCEPT PROPOSAL ABOUT COMPACT LIVING UNITS: USE CASE FOR STUDENT HOUSING2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the recent years around the world there has been a constant increase in the number of students who apply to continue their studies at a higher level, this in turn has brought a great demand in the occupation for student housing. Finding a place to live is one of the issues that new students have to face when moving into another city or country, which can be really challenging at times.

    The project speculates with a design concept that may help the demands for student housing in the city of Växjö, Sweden. The idea is a housing unit for one person that occupies a space of 13 m2 with an interior space of 10 m2 so it can be moved with a truck to the place where required for a temporary time.

    The interior proposes an efficient, flexible and comfortable space for the needs in the everyday life of a student. This is done with an organize layout and some multi-purpose furniture that can also be retractable when not in use to save space.

    Abstract [en]

    Anti-branding is a growing social movement as well as a communication strategy that criticize companies through redefining their brands and immaterial values by connecting negative associations to them. Although Anti-Branding is growing, research in the topic is scarce. Through a qualitative case study,based on three (3) Anti-Branding actions, a multimodal analysis and six (6) semi-structured interviews has been made to contribute research to the topic by examining how an organization can use Anti-Branding against a company to create change. The study show that various anti-branding actions in a multifaceted campaign is an efficient tool to create attention, awareness and involvement that lead to change. By utilizing the participatory culture of the this digital age organizations can use anti-branding efficiently by interacting with its publics to engage them to be co-creators of the anti-branding message and to be a part of the social movement and its culture.

    Like Me: An exploration into the impact of social media on our mental well-being from a speculative design perspective2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    What impact do social media have on mental well-being and how can design become a tool for increasing awareness among users? To interact on social media means to find new ways of seeking a sense of belonging, of being part of a society that can validate our existence and attribute value to what we decide to share. But what happens when there is a gap separating the ways in which we create value and sense of selfworth online and offline? How does it impact our mental well-being and the capacity to become a productive element of our society? Like Me is a speculative design project that explores the gap between the virtual and the real, while researching how it impacts our mental well-being and sense of self-worth in society. This Bachelor’s thesis delves into this topic through design methods and visual communication, resulting in a short fictional film about a speculative scenario. The aim of this research is to raise a discussion about embracing what is to come, finding a new sense of awareness to improve our impact on social sustainability. KEYWORD

    Wexiö Rugby: En grafisk profil2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project is about creating a graphic profile, with focus on logotype, to Wexio Rugby club. The club today consists of a men´s team and a half women´s team. Their long-term goal is to have a men´s team, a women´s team and a junior team within two years. Their logotype today has a poor resolution and represents a big, strong and aggressive man, which the ladies could not identify with. They have changed the logo on a number of occasions when they went on a macth or tournaments. My role and purpose with this project has been to research and analyze to develop a logotype and graphic identity that makes everyone in the club able to feel included. The final artifact will be a graphic manual and guidelines for how the new identity can look and be used.

    Abstract [en]

    The society of today has evolved into one of unsustainable consumption, with mass production of short-life and disposable products. To solve these problems we need to apply sustainability and sustainable thinking. As an interior designer, I use sustainable design to create environments that reflect the principles of economic, social and ecological sustainability. The purpose of this thesis is to create an interior space as a bespoke concept that invites people to get engaged and be aware about sustainable consumption.

    Ta vara på maten: En produkt för att minska matsvinnet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag slängs en tredjedel av den mat vi köper i soporna och av detta svinn är mellan 12-15 procent rester från måltider. Målet har varit att skapa en produkt som synliggör det enorma matsvinnet och ökar värdet och glädjen i att äta rester. Utifrån enkäter, observationer, djupintervjuer, ett samarbete med Rörstrand samt en designprocess har projektet resulterat i produkten Eila. Eila är en matlåda i benporslin med en ostindiskinspirerad dekor som berättar en historia om matens kretslopp för att göra användaren medveten om matsvinnets påverkan på naturen. Med detta projekt vill jag skapa en större medvetenhet och ge användaren en tankeställare om den långa väg som maten fraktas och den enorma energi som krävs i matproduktionen.

    Welcome to Sweden: Can visual language facilitate entry into Swedish society for preliterate?2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the fall of 2015, Sweden had the biggest incoming refugee wave since 19921, where more than 80 0002 people searched refuge in Sweden, unfortunately it will not be the last. Using 2015 as a case study, I explore the question: Can visual language facilitate entry into Swedish society for preliterate?

    Preliterate tends to be set aside in many situations like in 2015. There have been several debates and claims on improving the happenings of 2015, but how come that no one has taken preliterate into consideration? How can we in modern society adjust to this quite huge new group of people? How can we make the entry in to society more ef cient, and how can we provide important information for preliterate – is visual language the answer?

    To answer these questions, I have collaborated with Merit utbildning Malmö AB (Merit AB), a company that through various assignments like SFI (Swedish for immigrants) and Stöd och matchning (Vocational support, skills and employment matching services), helps newly arrived to nd their place in Swedish society. They allowed me to conduct several workshops with their students, this to ensure that the end result would be by the target group and for the target group. The workshops were primarily based on metadesign methods like 5 levels of storytelling and Designing miracles.

    After conducting several workshops with both research groups (focus group and reference group), the experience taught me to trust in the process and take a step back as a designer, and let the participants, design the result.

    The process concluded in an app called Welcome to Sweden, whose content is re ected at Malmö Central Station. While designing the app, the methods to reach out to preliterate were taken in to account. The information is provided in visual language as well as audio, and translated into the most common languages of those who came to Sweden 2015. The app is not the whole solution to the problematics, but my studies show that it would work better for many more in the target group and, in particular, information provided in this way would be more appropriate for the target group preliterate.

    Design och medveten närvaro: Ljusets förmåga till stressreducering och uppmuntran till medveten närvaro i förskolan.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish social insurance agency provides financial support for families and children, but also for people with work injury, illness and at old age. During 2012 they saw the amount of notifications of insurance increasing in Sweden, which is a development that cost our society a great deal of money. With the aim to pursue a sustainable development I have therefore devoted this project to wellness and stress management within preschool.

    The employees of preschool are often dealing with a lot of stress, due to the big groups of children that causes high noise and sound levels. The high noise and sound levels is a contributor to stress which additionally can damage the health and cause impaired hearing loss. About half of the people around their forties until the age of retirement have difficulties understanding speech in large groups.

    The purpose of this project has been to investigate the causes of negative stress for my target group, women between 30-60 years old who works in preschool. The concept was to design a light luminaire that contributes to awareness and stress reduction for my target group in their daily working routines. The reason I have chosen to work with a target group of women is mainly because the majority consist of women that work in preschool, but also due to previous investigations that proves that woman are exposed to more stress than men.

    Women´s social role in society has in immemorial times been to nurture their relationships and to create a pleasant working environment. This is an issue that contributes to the stress that women are experiencing. These gender roles become the reason to why women feel a conflict between work and family life.

    To manage the negative stress, the Western world has implemented an Eastern stress reduction method, named mindfulness. Mindfulness is a practice of awareness, a condition in which you pay attention to the present. Training in mindfulness is applied today with the purpose to reduce stress at hospitals, education institutions and childcare.

    #selfie: A self-reflective venture into the realms of Instagram2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The autoethnographic research project #selfie investigates the effects of the social media platform Instagram on the well-being of users aged 15–28 years. It focuses on the physical, psychological and psychosocial aspects of this user group’s behaviours, thoughts, and feelings.

    A review of current research shows that while Instagram usage can enhance short-term well-being by triggering positive emotional responses, the long-term consequences can include information overload and stress phenomena, which can lead to a decreased ability or even inability to focus on one specific thing or moment. The present thesis examines the effect of this decreased or lacking ability on individuals’ competence of reflective thinking and “mindfulness,” a competence which can be linked to living a lifestyle of sustainability. Without reflective thinking, individuals are unable to determine their own standpoint when it comes to issues related to sustainability.

    The review of current research is juxtaposed with excerpts from interviews and conversations with the investigated user group, as well as autoethnographic investigation and reflective illustrations based on the author’s own experience with Instagram. Through this, the actuality of prevailing opinions in current literature is discussed critically. This research suggests that design can and should bring issues such as extensive Instagram usage and its possible effects to public attention by offering an approach that can be as informative as appealing, making it attractive to commit to reflective thinking and encouraging the audience to broaden their horizon on the issue.

    The design proposal of this project consists of an illustrated graphic story which combines comics, illustration and text in the form of a zine which opens up a platform for dialogue on Instagram usage, therefore challenging readers to reflect on their own experiences and guiding them on their way to mindful social media use.

    Understanding Multiple Sclerosis symptoms and feelings: Designing a bridge of understanding between those with M.S. and those without2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work is to them who have recently received the diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), since the disease is quite a life changer this by creating limitations and cause serious health problems. Problems that would changes their life forever, this in adapting to their new life situation where communication has become harder this to express in an understandable way and understanding has become even harder. Since being diagnosed with MS it affect more than a single person, the one diagnosed family is also experiencing almost the same sort of difficulties and life changer. In not knowing what their family member is trying to express, this in order to make the family understand them will create a gap between them of misunderstanding. Evan the healthcare experience this sort of troubles when they are trying to understand what their patient is trying to express, without the proper understanding it might cause mistreatment of the patient. With a clearer understanding of their patient could they early understand their patients in knowing what they are trying to express. Since the healthcare staffs has been educated about this sort of disease would an easy understanding about their patient be helpful, this to provide the patient with the proper care. People that has never heard and been in contact with this sort of disease and what sort of features it could cause would be enlighten about the disease as well how it is to live with it. Providing an eye-opener to the public in what this disease is and what sort of problems it causes, this to inform and sharing the information. By sharing the information concerning this would the public be enlighten and have an understanding about the problems, which the person with MS experience. In order of enable, this sort of understanding between those with MS and the healthy ones would to use design in order of creating a sort of platform of common understanding. Creating a sort of bridge of understanding between healthy people and those with MS, it would improve the understanding of the person with MS as well the disease itself. This sort of tool would be helpful in the health care in helping those who recently been diagnosed with MS, reducing the stress in knowing their disease. This would as well ease and milder the shock of them diagnosed, providing them some sort of comfort in knowing their disease. To understand this sort of problems and symptoms, it would be possible to enlighten people as well health care, about the hardship that those who live with MS which they are enduring each day. To be diagnosed with MS and not knowing about what it is could cause extreme stress, worsening the diseases, being in a new situation with an unknown disease, without having someone to ask about this, expect the healthcare. In healthcare there exists no book written by one having MS describing the different symptoms as well the troubles, which they experience, this sort of information would be helpful since the one having MS wants to know from one experience the same troubles as they. To feel the comfort regarding their disease as well to feel that there is someone that has gone through the same experience as they have gone through. The result, which is a book that would act as a tool for understanding the disease, its troubles and problems in a clear as well informed way. This would create a sort of bridge of understanding between those with MS and those without. The pictures in the book are illustrating and informing in a clear way about the disease and its different symptoms. Since the disease is difficult to understand due to its diversity of problems, the book is displaying some of the most common problems in how it is to experience MS. This sort of book could help the already diagnosed in understanding their disease and be something they could find comfort to know as well knowing that someone else has experienced the same things as them.

    Making women’s casual wear cycling friendly: New method for merging styles in fashion2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Urban bicycling is a big growing trend between men and women across the world. People seem to have become more aware of the numerous benefits of riding a bike, as well as more health oriented and environmentally friendly. Sweden is one of the countries with so called strong bicycle culture.  You can ride a bicycle almost anywhere, at any time of the year, and without spending a fortune. Cycling builds strength in a holistic manner since every single part of the body is involved in cycling.

    I choose to look into women cycling habit in Sweden. With my design I want to encourage woman’s cycling activity by offering comfortable design solutions to their clothing. The project focuses on the active years of a woman’s life, in average the age of 20- 45. The seasons considered are spring- autumn with the temperature range between 20°-5°C. The final design solutions will be applicable in the everyday life of a woman that is both looking to look fashionable and comfortable on the bike. The project intends to deliver a capsule collection where 3 to 5 outfits will be translated into 3D, prototyped and manufactured.

    One main reason for investigating such a matter is today’s very widely explored awareness of sustainability.  The project aims to encourage more sustainable design processes for the fashion market as well as eco lifestyle for women who choose to ride bikes instead of cars more often. It will propose a new possible design development process in which the user is more involved and can give some input, that way delivering a needed, better fitted and better sold product. The new design solution should satisfy the target group with a quality product that is not only comfortable and functional but also lasting for a long time. The final design will of course consider the esthetical feminine sophisticated look.

    Through this project I am looking to bring more comfort in the movement and functional detailing to non-sportswear. I want to investigate something apart from traditional sportswear, something that has not been considered much before; to incorporate functional sporty features and details to a more casual wear. I want to make use of special fabrics and develop new cuts, pockets, pleats and adjust patterns so that the final prototype would feel sporty but will look casual. Emphasis will be placed on developing understanding of fabric characteristics, accessing sources and knowledge and understanding of technological developments to inform innovative design.

    The purpose of the project is to develop a heightened awareness of the design methodologies available today that can be applied in fashion industry. This thesis will incorporate the traditional design development process applied in fashion and the user centered design method applied mostly in service and product design. Through research and prototyping, the aim will be to deliver a design that has been developed considering in a higher range user’s needs and preferences.

    User centred design is mainly looking to understand the user’s needs, wants and desires in order to improve the new design and human experience. When it comes to fashion, people are all individuals; they all have different needs and preferences. It is nearly impossible to try and satisfy them all, especially in mass produced fashions however the design development should in a way or another allow some user input. As little as suggestions on detailing, finishing features comfort and fit preferences could make a great difference for the success of the new design.

    Choosing to do a fashion project I initially wanted to investigate the problems with bad fit and uncomfortable women’s wear designs nowadays. With that in mind I was still missing a context, which clothes exactly and why. This is when I started to investigate specifically what women wear every day when riding bikes in the cities. Together with the city cycling trend, grows the demand for more comfort and function in the everyday clothes.  Clothing that can stay true to both performance and style is in big demand today as with clothes that look good both on and off the bike, there’s no need to have to change out of your cycling gear when you arrive at your destination. You can ride to work feeling comfortable and leave the office in style in the same set of clothes.

    Kan man skapa hållbarhet via förnimmelser?2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Inför det här projektet tog jag beslutet att jobba ensam. Jag ville utforska min roll som designer genom att försöka skapa en artefakt som väcker minnen.

    Fick en vision om att sinnesförnimmelser och mänskliga känslor kan vara ett nytt sätt att tänka kring hållbarhet. Om man skapar objekt som når människans sammansatta biologiska känslor, kan objektet kanske bli mer betydelsefull. I nostalgiska känslor finns alltid minst ett av dessa känslor med. Därför valde jag att undersöka människans fem sinnen och känslan av nostalgi. Denna känsla vill jag söka överföra till en artefakt för den vuxna människan. Under projektets gång blev jag intresserad av ett begrepp som heter öppen design. Det handlar om att lämna fria/tomma ytor i objektet och låta användaren ta en större roll i processen och låta var och en avsluta designen på ett personligt sätt. För att kunna identifiera nostalgi tog jag valet att inspireras av naturen, barnasinnet och tiden. Vad dessa tre har gemensamt är upplevelsen av att ske i nuet, att inte kunna förutspås eller vara i ständig rörelse.

    Därför går jag också in i begreppet Dromolgi (läran om hastighet) som handlar om teknologins påverkan i samhället och hur detta kan drabba den naturliga tidsrytmen hos individen.

    Som studerande produktdesigner valde jag att få fram detta via en sittmöbel med en höjd som påminner om klätterställningar man lekte vid som barn. På så vis kan man uppleva en nostalgisk känsla som associeras till ett minne som lever kvar i sinnesförnimmelserna från barndomen och på så sätt skapa ett mervärde kring sig.

    Crisis Retold: A Design Research Project Exploring the Narrative of War Crisis in Sweden2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This written report is part of a design research project which explores crisis as a narrative and how it is communicated within the Swedish public sphere. The project delves into the complexity surrounding Sweden’s national emergency preparedness to war crisis on a holistic level to gain a perspective on the different interplay of power structures. The written report includes a contextual analysis of Sweden’s 2018 brochure If Crisis or War Comes (Om krisen eller kriget kommer) to draw a parallel connection between past and present narratives. The design research process is conducted through artistic and designerly experimentations as a way of exploring and mapping the topic’s complexity. The design research project uses a Swedish emergency shelter room (skyddsrum) as an artistic and overarching metaphor of the cumulated research. The aim of the design research project is to instigate critical thinking and dialogue surrounding the narrative of war crisis from the perspective of change.

    "Technology on Stage": "The Use of Technology in Scenography in a Theatrical Context"2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The following thesis focuses on the use of technology within the field of theatre

    scenography and serves as a starting point for a related final project. The author uses this work as an

    opportunity to investigate the role of technology- both analogue and digital- for the development of theatre productions through a careful examination of its history; the patterns and movements in scenography as a reflection of broader social and philosophical context.

    Technology serves as an important tool of innovation within the field of scenography.

    However, its impact on the overall development of the dramatic action, as well as the focus of the audience, is also to be considered. The author aims to analyze the reasons for the implementation of elements such as lighting, projections and movement in scenography, as an addition to action's dynamic in the past and draw the conclusions for when such devices could be useful in the future.

    Another important aspect analyzed and discussed in this work is the issue of

    sustanability within theatre. The author analyzes current situation and discusses potential ways in which it could be improved- both on a local and global level- which then results in the final project discussed below. The project aims to serve as a long-term, sustainable alternative to the current approach to theatre production.

    Using an exisiting project of the director Fabio Cherstich as a starting point of the project, the author strives to both fulfill the requirements of the individual "client", as well as to serve a greater cause of offering a new, sustainable approach to scenography through a design of a service surrounding the final product.

    Bi och vi: En möbel att vila sin tyngd på som belyser det stora i det lilla.2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Relationen mellan bi och människa är så pass gammal att man inte helt säkert kan säga när den uppkom, men man vet säkert att honungsbin varit tämjda av människan i minst 4000 år. Under hösten 2006 och våren 2007 skedde dramatiska förluster av honungsbin i USA och Kanada. Colony Collapse Disorder, (CCD) kallades syndromet och snart kom det även oroande rapporter från europeiska länder om ovanligt stora vinterförluster. Kontentan är att förlusten av biologisk mångfald är något som borde oroa hela samhället och när pollinerande insekter försvinner är det särskilt oroväckande, då detta i sin tur kan ha en negativ inverkan på växters reproduktion.

    Detta projekt utgår från frågeställningen: Hur kan jag som designer inbjuda till en kroppslig upplevelse av problematiken kring bidöden? 

    Projektets ledord är skörhet och ‘det stora i det lilla’ och artefaktens primära funktion är att synliggöra och undervisa i känslan av vad bidöden kan medföra, snarare än att vara kommersiellt gångbar eller förhålla sig till en tydlig målgrupp. Artefakten utgår inte heller från ett rum eller en från början bestämd kontext, utan konceptet har varit det styrande och form- och materialbeslut har fått växa fram genom att förhålla sig till konceptet. Resultatet är en möbel på vilken människan kan vila sin tyngd vars sittyta består av bomullstrådar som en metafor till ‘det stora i det lilla’.

Tekniken går snabbt framåt och många nya produkter kommer ut på marknaden varje år. Trots det så lever många med funktionshinder i miljöer som skulle kunna anpassas bättre.  Om miljön anpassas efter människors individuella förmågor blir funktionsnedsättningarna inga hinder för att kunna leva ett självständigt liv.

    This is a Critical Design project that focuses on E-number additives in food. The aim is not to criticise the use of these additives, but rather to encourage consumers to question the industries that use them. This project is based on research in the purpose and manufacturing of additives. The research has been collected and used as a base for a cookbook. The book is a collection of fictional recipes and descriptions of additives based on industrial production of E-number additives. Chemistry, contrast and structure are the key focus in the graphic design work. The resulting publication is a conceptual work and will need further development before it can be considered complete. 

    Detta är ett Critical Design projekt som fokuserar på tillsatser i mat. Målet är inte att kritisera användningen av tillsatser utan att uppmuntra konsumenter att ifrågasätta dessa. Projektet är baserat på forskning kring användningen och tillverkningen av tillsatser. Denna information har samlats och används som underlag för en kokbok. Boken är en samling av fiktiva recept och beskrivningar, baserade på industriell produktion av E-ämnen. Kemi, kontrast och struktur ligger som fokus för det grafiska arbetet. Den resulterande publikationen är ett konceptuellt arbete och kommer att behöva ytterlig utveckling innan det an anses färdigt.

    If Only...: A design exploration of kroppshets2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This design project explores the complexity of kroppshets on a sociocultural and individual level. The design research has studied patriarchal and capitalist structures and looked into industries that feed and benefit from women’s body dissatisfaction. It also looks closer at media and its part in maintaining and transmitting the unattainable body ideal created by these structures. Through autoethnographic methods and practise based research this project aims to visualise kroppshets and how it affects women in their everyday life. The project collaborates with a dozen of women that have, through interactive interviews, given a deeper insight of the subjective experience of kroppshets to add to a collective definition. The design research and its finding have resulted in a short film that give a glimpse into what situations kroppshets raise in everyday life and acknowledge women’s struggle to fit within patriarchal beauty standards. Through visualisation the issue is made accessible for a wider audience, raising awareness and making it a catalyst for change that hopefully can result in a more wholesome and sustainable life quality for women.

    The Knowledge of Use2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Out of a personal interest in fashion and a sense of responsibility for the planet I live on, this thesis aims to encourage young adults to use their garments for longer, or more formally stated in the research question: “How can fashion be used as a sustainable tool?” Such tools have taken different forms and shapes and aimed to have facilitated teenagers to see fashion beyond consumption. It has allowed pupils at a local school in Växjö to wonder about habits of usership instead of ownership. Our habits of wasting away materials without considering where is away, has driven irreversible changes, and fashion industry has much to account for it. However, I argue that fashion has to be considered for its materialities, physical and nonphysical materials, such as clothing, expression and unlimited uses. Therefore, one has to develop usership skills, which through time, will allow clothing to show its resilience, values, shapes and needs. The practice, based on interviews and workshops, explores how young adults, the next generation of consumers, can inquire into future scenarios of their own garments, wondering new possibilities by acknowledging the system they are in. Therefore, the knowledge of use is a tool that facilitates one to be more attentive, inquisite and reflective with its garments, aiming at building lasting relationships with clothing.

    Vaskollektion för Kosta Boda: Bruksglas för den nya generationen av vuxna2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Glasriket och dess glas är något som jag fascineras väldigt mycket av. Under den senaste tiden i min utbildning har jag blivit mer uppmärksammad för glasdesign och hantverket bakom, genom mina tidigare studier i glasdesign. Jag har därför valt fortsatt arbete med glas som material i detta projekt. Under mitt examensarbete kommer jag att samarbeta med det småländska glasbruket och designföretaget Orrefors Kosta Boda AB. För Kosta Boda ska jag ta fram en serie vaser i en kollektion med målat glas. De ska ha ett förhållande till varandra och passa ihop men också klara sig var och en.

    UNIFY: En interaktionsmöbel som skapar möten2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi lever i ett samhälle som blir allt mer individualistiskt. Jag är viktigast. Vi förlorar interaktionen med andra människor, även om den sociala interaktionen är en del utav våra viktigaste behov. Vi behöver mänskliga möten. I detta projekt formger jag en interaktionsmöbel som inspirerar till dessa möten. Ordet unify betyder förena och är valt som titel för projektet. Genom en förening av material skapar jag en sittmöbel vars syfte är att förena och skapa möten mellan människor.

    Así, Así: Investigating the complexity of identity through the example of a micro-narrative2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the complextity of identity through the example of a micro-narrative. It zooms in on the relationship between a 24-year-old girl from South Africa and her 86-year-old great aunt from Spain. The investigation focuses on hands – tools with which we carry out our day-to-day practices. The hands are used as a metaphor to represent our connection with the material world – the way in which interact with each other and our surroundings. How do we navigate familiar and unfamiliar places? The outcome is visualised through an audio-visual installation.

    Roll, Duck, & Cover!: A collaboratively produced, critical game that generates a discussion around the visual representation of nuclear warfare in media2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This research project explores how we can apply Emerging Design Landscapes such as Critical Design and Collective Creativity, in combination with traditional fields of visual communication to address societal challenges in cooperation with society.

    In particular, this paper aims to question the visual representation of nuclear warfare, and how we could utilize Peircean Semiotics to better understand set representation.

    The design outcome is a critical board game that at its core aims to create a discussion around the visual representation of nuclear warfare today and act as a learning platform that would help its user better understand the practice of semiosis.
