    Alstermo bruk: Min processbeskrivning i framförandet av en ny kollektion för Alstermo bruk 2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I mitt examensarbete har jag i uppdrag från det anrika företaget Alstermo bruk arbetat fram en kollektion resväskor. Textilen har varit en central del i mitt arbete, målet var att textilen tydligt ska genomsyras av företagets ledord historia, hantverk och svenskt. Inspirationen kommer från den småländska skogen och för att anknyta till svenskhistoria har jag hämtat influenser från allmoge. Jag har tagit fram två textiler, en standardtextil som ska fungera för hela serien där företagets logotyp lyfts fram och en fronttextil som ska används i produktkataloger och visas för återförsäljare.

    Erika Lagerbielke: Form för alla sinnen2018Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Blått är havets och himlens färg, oändlig och ogripbar. Det finns styrka och intensitet i den blå färgen, liksom det finns lugn och vemod. Så inleds boken "Erika Lagerbielke - Form för alla sinnen" som är en nära skildring av Erika Lagerbielkes verk och verksamhet. Boken är ett samtidsdokument som syftar till att bidra till nya insikter i konstnärliga processer, modern designhistoria samt glasets kulturella och industriella utveckling i Sverige. Flera av Lagerbielkes viktigaste projekt belyses genom att unikt material sammanställs till berättelser från ateljén och glasbruken som ger nya perspektiv på kända designobjekt.

    Erika Lagerbielkes forskning vid Linnéuniversitetet sker ofta i korssamverkan med hennes designpraktik. Exempelvis har hennes forskning om betydelsen av design för måltidupplevelsen stora synergier med hennes arbete med design av vinglas som förhöjer dryckesupplevelsen (servisen Difference). Hennes forskningsprojekt Eternal Glass (i samverkan med RISE Glass) om återvinning av glas har sitt ursprung i design- och kommunikationsprojektet Oändlighet, som var ett samarbete med Ryds Bilglas och Kosta glasbruk. Boken är ett berättande och samtidigt reflekterande.

    Exempel på projekt är:

    Kronprinsessparets Bröllopsservis, gåvan från Sveriges riksdag och regering

    Linnéuniversitetets Rektorskedja

    Blått och andra färger, om konstglas

    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.

    "När man tänker på det blir man mer arg än när man utsätts för det": En kvalitativ studie om unga kvinnliga studenters upplevelser och hantering av sexuella trakasserier på Facebook2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social media has been acclaimed for the possibilities for young women to get their voices heard in the form of open discussion and freedom of opinion. The possibilities for personal communication and interaction have also been seen as great assets. However, in recent years social media has become the focus for debate on Internet hate and harassment, a major problem for many young women on the Internet. In the light of this problem, this qualitative study was aimed to investigate how young women themselves perceive and manage the risk of being subjected to sexual harassment, and the ways in which they protect themselves against this type of harassments on the social media outlet: Facebook. In order to collect relevant data we conducted three focus group interviews with semi-structured nature, with a total of 12 young female students from Linnaeus University in Kalmar. The womens experiences was analyzed by Hirdman’s gender theory and their management practices were analyzed by Lazarus and Folkman's coping theory and Carver, Scheier & Weintraubs coping categories. The study also revealed four methods that descibed how the women protected themselves from becoming victims. We call these preventive strategies and have categorized them by Carver, Scheier & Weintraubs coping categories. The survey found that these women experienced a normalization of sexual harassment on Facebook as well as a low ability to solve this issue on their own. Consequenlty, sexual harassment towards women is being either in effectively handled or not handled at all. The preventative strategies presented were anonymity, not to take a stand, conformity or take a stand. The strategies decreased the risk of exposure to some extent, but also led to limitations in the possibilities of using Facebook as a medium for open discussions and communication.

    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]

    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.

    Making resilience through design doing2019In: Cumulus Conference Proceedings Rovaniemi 2019: Around the Campfire – Resilience and Intelligence. 27th May – 1st June 2019, Rovaniemi, Finland / [ed] Jonna Häkkilä, Minna Pakanen, Elina Luiro, Enni Mikkonen, Satu Miettinen, Aalto: Cumulus International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media , 2019, p. 83-91Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We propose ‘resilience making’ in this paper as urgent, creative and adaptive action through an account of its exploration with students in the first year of an international BFA in design. We focus on the learning design being carried out for the fourth iteration of the module ‘Resilience’ - the last of eight modules completed by students in an introductory year structured around design tools and processes.Our core proposition is that context-rich, place-based making is a means to connect students within social-ecological systems as continua, rather than positioning them as separate from the abstract concepts and systems theory we typically expect them to comprehend. Arising from this learning design process, we highlight insights around sustainability epistemologies, meaningmaking in place, and our valuing of contextual and traditional knowledge.As design practitioner-teachers, we outline our working position in relation to sustainability and resilience education, and our aims of integrating design knowing, seeing and doing. We then detail how the module will unfold with students during May 2019 - a month characterised by:

    • place-specific making days progressing in focus from personal, to community, to large-scale system resilience

    • structured reflection by students on their first year learning and placebased making; and

    • a culminating, ‘co-citizen’ lab week in which students are challenged to carry out adaptive action by linking their own system and timescales in the context of their diverse learning community.

    We close by questioning how we might advance ‘resilience making’ as designled adaptive action, and strengthen our own resilience as practitioners and teachers of design in a time of crisis.

    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.

    Project starts with the Swedish food to study the Swedish diet cultureand the traditional customs. Based on the theory of the sustainabledevelopment, the project makes a deep discussion about how tointroduce the Swedish culture to China, which aims to expand itsinfluence in China, improve the Swedish popularity in China andpromote the development of Swedish tourism.The project sets Embassy of Sweden in China as a project partnerand ultimately provides the product solutions which can improve theeconomic benefits for Swedish Embassy in China.Project aims to promote Swedish culture to Chinese people. Try topromote Swedish culture by products. As a related industry chain,which help and cooperation can be used in China and achieve thesustainable development of a product in a field.As a designer, when we improve the design, we should make multiangles analysis and assessment of the ecological, economic, culturaland social fields at the same time. Creative thinking can be used tosolve problem, to convey the theory of sustainable development.The design of sustainable development make the idea of sustainabledevelopment be emerged into the process of the product design,make ecological environment and economic development become acausal organic whole, which can make effective utilization of theresources and the energy to reduce the environmental pollution to aminimum.Product innovation design which is based on the product design toadapt to the current social trends is the innovative design field, whichis derived from the Theory Inventive Problem Solving, it is a part ofindustrial design.Define the nation branding, which refers to the overall image that acountry is in the minds of the citizens, it is the sum of the tangibleand intangible value that the people feel of a country.Nation branding is using a powerful, attractive and distinctive way toshow the image of the country.

    The Logistics of Harmonious Co-living: Exploring contemporary co-living through design interventions.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary co-living, as an accommodation alternative, is in a unique position to provide social fulfilment and sustainable development through sharing and community generation.

    However, it is increasingly clear that there is a lack of understanding of the realities of these spaces, and that this limiting the commercial application of the co-living model. Existing architecture, artefacts, and services are failing to accommodate the needs and objectives of collective users. Therefore, to experience the full ecological, social, and economic benefits of co-living, research must be performed to understand how residents share, experience, and inhabit space.

    This project responds by applying design thinking and collaborative exploration methods to produce case studies for two contrasting co-living developments in London, UK. Workshops, observations, literature research, and interviews build a foundation of contemporary knowledge.

    This inspires the design of an exploratory, pedagogical tool, in the form of a modular furniture collection. On top of its physical functionality, it offers developers the opportunity to learn and experiment towards a better understanding of how residents utilise space and resources. A prototype is built and tested with both case study sites acting as Living Labs. The design intervention produces a positive increase in resident well-being and confidence in interacting with the space around them. Moreover, developers confirm an increased understanding of the resident's needs and actions.

    The success of the project shows the role design can play in contemporary research, positive change, and sustainable development. The results have implications for co-living providers, researchers, and designers supporting sustainable lifestyle alternatives.

    The future of the workplace: How can office furniture companies create circular business models while supporting the changing world of work?2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The contemporary economic, social and environmental context is at the edge of change. Governments, individuals and, companies need to take drastic measures to save the planet Earth. It has been globally communicated and understood that our lifestyle is not sustainable. If we do not transform how we produce, consume, travel and live, the future generation’s ability to evolve in the world we know today might be compromised. The study is using the Circular Economy as a way to rethink industries and furniture usage. In this case, the researcher inquired the office furniture industries. The goal at the end of the research process is to find an alternative to the linear business model established in the office furniture industry. The project is providing a holistic vision on the furniture’s journey from production to recycling. The proposal is based on the analysis of the current state of the office furniture industry to transform the linear business model to a circular model. The research was mainly lead thanks to three collaborators. The most important collaborator in the study is Steelcase. The company is the leader and expert in the office furniture field. Thanks to one year of experience at Steelcase, the researcher acquired deep knowledge about the office furniture industry in the heart of the industry of interest. It allowed to collect valuable information to understand the challenges office furniture industries are facing. And, finally, analyse the potential and challenges the transition from a linear to a circular business model represents for office furniture companies. The researcher also gained knowledge from dealers working at Blanchet-D’Huismes, who have a lot of expertise about the workplace and the office furniture industry. Finally, the last collaborator involved in the study is WeWork, a company renting workplaces, which represent the new business models appearing in the office industry. The research is lead from a designer’s point of view. Thanks to the experience and conversations with professionals from the workplace industry, valuable knowledge was acquired. With a deep understanding of the office furniture industry, the researcher designed a circular model. In order to share the findings of the research, the model was visualised with diagrams which allow anyone from the office furniture industry to understand the project. The goal of the project is to communicate the issues with the current model and propose a new approach to how the workplace could be furnished in the future.

    Just Build It2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Thesis Project aimed to cultivate understanding about the interrelationships between humans and materials in the context of consumerism, sustainability, and time, through helping people learn about woodworking materials and tools,  develop a more profound respect for them, and understand how one interacts with them. Incorporating repair culture and material education into a collaborative service design, the author reflected on his sustainability as a woodworker to enable others to connect with materials and tools in a meaningful way. The Project followed a nonlinear process, allowing the author to move back and forth to reflect, refine and progress from idea to form, and back to idea, while respecting his tangible need for medium and method. By researching scores of different woodworking tools found in an antique tool box received as a gift, the author defined their purpose in woodcraft and their connection with people they served and society as a whole. Inspirations for the Project consisted of woodworking, time, and social, environmental and economic stability, in addition to various types of design: service, collaborative, circular, and critical. Four different processes – prototyping, service blueprint, advertising and service experiences – were employed to respond to the research question. Key results included the provision of over 20 services to 15 individuals through a simple design process. By helping people to fix their objects in an ongoing conversation about sustainability with regard to material use and consumption, tools and practices were used effectively to change interrelationships between people and materials. Through the services and ‘hands-on conversations’, many began to understand and appreciate the possibilities of tools to revitalize old furniture and increase their value. Some people used tools themselves to resolve their problems, with all participants showing appreciation for the services, while expressing commitment to use, rather than discard, the objects. A few of the thousands contacted through social media, responded to calls for assistance, with the Project concluding that the process has potential, but without a business model, it would be difficult to sustain. Questions regarding the future included: What type of business could harness opportunities, offering viable employment? How many would need to be involved? How great is the demand for services? Which policies or regulations must be in place for a successful practice? The author was cognizant of the need for additional skills and knowledge to pursue the challenge of operationalizing the services provided through a sustainable livelihood.

    Den här essän handlar om hur man skulle kunna förena två intressenters uttryck i en och samma produkt, en skärmvägg för öppna kontorsmijöer. I det här projektets enkäter har det framkommit att den inredningsdetalj som många är gladast över på sin arbetsplats är något de själva har valt; en särskild mugg, ett foto på sambon, en teckning av barnen...

    Inom kontorsinredning ligger fokus på att tillgodose organisationens behov och det blir allt vanligare med varumärkesbyggande inredningar. För att en produkt ska fungera väl i dessa miljöer behöver den tillgodose båda intressenternas önskemål och olika krav på estetik.

    PLAY, SHARE, CONNECT, REPEAT: A collaborative game for social engagement for elderly population receiving home care service2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis researches the need for increased social engagement among isolated elderly population receiving home care service in Sweden. The notion of ‘social engagement’ and how to stimulate it is a central point throughout the work. The author finds that the isolation issue is related to political factors, sustainability and Swedish culture and how they interact with the individual. The theoretical framework is comprised of the field of care science and theories regarding isolation and sense of community.

    Using such empirical research and more in-depth own research such as interviews, the author concludes that social isolation is, in fact, a problem. The answer or suggested solution to this problem takes the shape of a design proposal: Play, Share, Connect, Repeat.

    Play, Share, Connect, Repeat is a game introduced by home care service that aims to create bonds and stimulate social engagement between care receivers.

    Abstract [en]

    The test for color population stereotypes was performed at Dresden University with 90 subjects from Germany (37 males and 53 females). They were asked to associate 13 pairs of opposite terms and 27 colors selected from the Natural Color System (NCS). For 23 terms we found significant associations (p=0.0001) with at least one color. Unique color associations among the German participants were revealed especially for the concepts sorrow, upset, distant, friendly, cheap, and expensive. The primary hues red, blue and yellow yielded the greatest number of associations. Saturated shades occurred more frequently than light and dark ones.

    Lighting Student’s Well-being: Social lighting, social sustainability, subjectivewell-being2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is an exploration of how artificial lights are used to create atmospheres in a space, andhow they enhance an individual’s well-being. The focus here is placed on students in Sweden,specifically those who live in one-room apartments. Students typically do not invest much intheir lights yet being in Scandinavia, artificial lighting is used to compensate for the lack ofdaylight hours. As such, the lights they have will impact how they go about their day.A light is designed using product design methods to respond to the research question: “to whatextent can a versatile light source alter the atmosphere of a student’s space to enhance their wellbeing?”As the research is situated in Sweden, aspects of the Scandinavian lighting culture will beexamined and implemented in the design. The student’s well-being will be assessed through thetheory of subjective well-being, specifically how it can be enhanced through perceived control.The light design also aims to be socially sustainable, focusing on how individuals’ well-being canbe improved through lighting. The design also attempts to tackle inequalities by showing it canbe made of cheap and accessible materials, as well as being professionally manufactured. Thecheaper version is to ensure students with lower incomes can access the same quality of light asothers, where the light will create a similar atmosphere. Finally, the concept of social lighting isdefined in the context of this thesis. It concentrates on designing the light based on interviewswith students and emphasising the relationship between a student and their apartment.Through interviews and photos, a design brief was formed to understand what type of lightstudents use in their apartment and what they were looking for. After a series of iterations, afinal design was obtained and created. One version was made professionally in metal by BelidLighting. Another was made out of thick card and paper clips, materials easily accessible tostudents. The models were tested by students in their home for two nights, after which aninterview took place to obtain impressions and feedback on the design.It was concluded that a versatile light source altered the atmosphere of a student space toenhance their well-being to a certain extent. This was due to people’s existing relationship withlights, where they don’t generally interact beyond switching them on and off. Nonetheless,participants enjoyed making their own lamp, and found the lamp design quite unique. Thishelped maintain their subjective well-being.

    WasteLess: Sustainable modular table design with metadesign thinking2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Waste management has been considered as a significant challenge for sustainable

    development. From EPA report, furniture is the number one least-recycled item in a

    household. In current markets, much of furniture is made of composite material,

    which isn’t feasible to separate. This design project is based on the trend of

    sustainable furniture as well as the rapid expansion of recycling culture. It contains

    both tangible furniture design and intangible metadesign thinking. Here it comes with

    thesis statement: In order to raise public awareness of sustainability, how to design a

    furniture product with metadesign thinking?

    The content of the project is a modular table design that combines both recycle

    material and mass-producible ready-to-assemble furniture (RTA). This table design is

    including freehand sketches, hand-made models, Rhinoceros 3D modeling and short

    instruction movie.

    TRANSFIXED BY MATTER: Sports equipment for disobedient bodies2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With this project, I wish to question the processes of designing for normative, active bodies and create opportunities for more inclusive and democratic sports. It aims to render and re-engineer sports equipment as we know them.  

    The design thesis has been developed based on research and experiences of exclusion regarding accessible equipment for Parasports. From a norm-critical standpoint, my collaborator Ebba and I have therefore developed a new Paralympic seat and back support for the sport of rowing. As a norm-creative innovation, its design addresses the particularities of the individual body and its specific needs. 

    The project investigates the combination of co-creation, craft and norm-creative methods as a pragmatic and alternative approach to sports equipment. By 3D scanning Ebba’s body, digital and physical iterations were in combination with manual crafts, principles of the making. The result shows great potential as the equipment are fully functional, it consists of a sandwich construction with a (Nomex) core and layers of high modulus carbon fibre. The back support is adjustable in four axis points. 

    I state that if we want to engage in sustainable sports equipment, the notions of co-creation, norm-criticality and crafts have good potential in formulating inclusive and accessible outcomes that are both desirable, valuable and satisfying for people with disobedient bodies.

    Realization of a higher education interdisciplinary program2016In: Lärarlärdom 2016: Högskolan Kristianstad / [ed] Claes Dahlqvist, Stefan Larsson, Kristianstad University Press , 2016, p. 55-69Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For most companies and organizations there is a need to employ graduates with interdisciplinary skills. Hence it becomes important for universities and teaching institutions to graduate students with this knowledge. At the same time there is need for universities and teaching institutions to position itself in relation to its competitors. This is an apparent challenge for universities and teaching institutions, as developing and offering interdisciplinary programs requires them to break the normal traditional university structure involving different faculties applying different operating models. However, by succeeding with this, universities will create a competitive advantage over their competitors.

    At Linnaeus University, Sweden, an interdisciplinary program called Innovation through Business, Engineering and Design involving three faculties has been developed.  The program was initiated in 2011 and began in 2014 with 15 students. The program is dimensioned for about 30 students, ten from each faculty. This paper reports on the realization of the program and the resources needed to do this. Knowing the resource requirements is necessary in order to make correct decisions regarding program development and to avoid decisions on invalid grounds. Knowing the activities to be performed is an essential pre-requisite for resource planning. Consequently the purpose of this paper is to identify organization roles and activities as well as the resources required in order to realize an interdisciplinary program.

    The paper is empirical in nature and data has been collected using interactive research. Interactive research stresses the researchers (i.e. the authors) joint learning together with other members of the development group and the other actors involved. 

    The paper concludes that in order for a realization to take place organizational roles (such as project leader and product coordinators), and activities such as creating deliverable document and schedule are necessary. The differences between a single-disciplinary program and a multidisciplinary program lies rather in the complexity and time management of performing the activities needed then in the actual performing. There is primarily a need for human capital, as the suitable faculty members are needed, as well as there is a need financial capital.

    Glas de Luxe: En utvidgad designerroll förframtiden i svensk glasindustri2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Målet med det här arbetet är att se bortom de senaste årens negativa utveckling för glasindustrin och undersöka vilka fördelar som finns i glasindustrin idag.Researcharbetet består av studiebesök och intervjuer av nyckelpersoner för att skapa en bild av hur branschen ser ut. Till det kommer även en analys av bilden som glasbruken ger av sig själva mestadels med hjälp av internet. Dagens glasindustri är småskalig och det ger fördelar som hög flexibilitet, korta beslutsvägar och möjlighet att tillverka mindre produktserier. Legotillverkning lyfts fram som ett bra exempel på hur man kan få avsättning för svensktillverkat glas. För att som designer utnyttja detta undersöks möjligheten att arbeta som ett slags glaskonsult. Genom att vara länken mellan beställare och glasindustri kan designern då få en nyckelroll och göra det lättare för intresserade företag att ta fram glasprodukter i Sverige. Utöver designarbetet ska designern vara expert på branschen och veta vad som går att tillverka och vem som kan göra det bäst.För att praktiskt undersöka det här sättet att arbeta samarbetar jag med restaurangen Kafé de Luxe i Växjö. Tillsammans med deras ölleverantör Galatea Spirits har jag tagit fram ett specialdesignat glas till deras ”stora stark”. Eftersom det handlar om servisglas i klart glas vände jag mig – i linje med mitt koncept – till Skrufs glasbruk.Arbetet består av två delar. Först en analys av glasindustrin och beskrivning av konceptet följt av en beskrivning av min designprocess för Kafé de Luxes glas.Utifrån research och designarbete dras slutsatsen att konceptet med en utvidgad designerroll är gångbart men kräver en stor insats av designern.

    Abstract [en]

    One of the major contributions of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child(UNCRC) to the context of children’s rights was the introduction of participation.In addition to the right to provision and protection, participation gives children theright to express their opinions in all matters affecting them. Furthermore, theyhave to be provided the opportunity to be heard. As part of their continuedcommitment towards children’s rights, Sweden has now decided to incorporatethe UNCRC to its legislation. Based on this context and drawing from literatureabout children's rights and participation, and a study case of youth participationand culture, the project seeks to create a model that promotes and improvechildren’s and young people’s participation an influence. Thus, the project aimsto contribute to the applied research field and inform on practical approaches tochildren’s participation and influence. As a result, the project proposes HejÅsikter! An ecosystem for children’s and young people’s participation, wheredifferent stakeholders benefits from collaborative and coordinated work andultimately achieve children’s acknowledgement and empowerment.

    Sitting with mobile devices

    In my major work I explore how people sit more hunched with a small screen in hand,

    despite the existence of ergonomic office chairs and other seating options. My question

    is if I can impact the user, and encourage them to obtain a better posture with the help of

    the armchairs rests, and in this way minimize the impact on the neck.

    As a designer I want to comment on, but also highlight our use of mobile devices by

    adapting the shape of the armchair to fit this need.

      The bowls with their round bottom may need some help to keep their balance which means you care for the bowl and the food you eat. The idea is that you easily, with one hand can hold your bowl and if you want to set it aside, you do it gently. My wish is that the bowl will be so appealing that the user connects to it and makes it their own.

    Revitalizing a Company Classic: The Story of Revitalizing a Company Classic Using a Practical Method of Design2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this report is to analyze a practical method of design while doing an innovation project connected to a specific armchair. The aim is to re-vitalize the pre-existing product. This project is done within the context of a specific furniture producer. This report describes theories about practical methods of design and how the practical intellect is used in a creative process. It also contains background research about classics. The background research is based on a brief literature review on the subject as well as interviews with professionals within the field of furniture design.  A few factors that can be said to characterize what makes a classic are suggested. The development of a specific armchair is described. Earlier projects where practical methods of design have been used are also described. The practical methods of design used in this project are described. The main method for this is making physical models by hand together with hand sketching.  The design process of developing a new product is described and discussed. As a final result visualizations and a description of a suggestion of how one can re-vitalize the specific armchair are shown. The outcomes and learning from using a practical method of design are discussed. The final suggestion is analyzed according to the factors suggested in the background research to characterize what makes a classic.

    I do not want people only to pass by each other on the street. I want them to meet and get an exchange from one another. I want to contribute to activity rather than passivity and I want to turn disbelief into trust. My project is all about unification. A unification of places, people and of materials.

    In this project I have been working with the cultural domain in Växjö. A domain which includes the public library, Växjö concert hall, Växjö art gallery, Växjö theatre, Ringsberg theatre and Spetsamossen activity park. The aim has been to unify these geographical places as well as the people visiting them. I have designed an interaction piece. A bench whose function will conduce groups or individuals to affect one another through their actions. The bench will encourage collaboration and communication and it will work as a recurring characteristic of the cultural domain. Hopefully, the bench will also conduce people to be more than strangers to each other.

    Abstract [en]

    Every year in Sweden we throw away tons of edible food. It is neither ecologically nor economically sustainable. The food could be used for something better. By making chutney from the fruit and vegetables which shops otherwise would throw away, the food gets a second chance. The “Fallguld” project is a collaboration between the co- operative organisation Macken, Växjö Municipality, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Coop Oxtorget and ICA Maxi Växjö. 


    I have developed the graphic identity for the project including logotype, labels and

    marketing, and examined how to give value to something that is considered worthless.

    Alone but not lonely: Developing a dish dryer for single households2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden has the highest number of single households in the world, yet the majority of household appliances are targeted towards other groups. In a society where single households and compact living are becoming increasingly present, the need for targeted products has become more relevant. The purpose of this project was to design a product which addresses these problems, and eases the everyday life of the intended users. The project was executed using several design methods, such as analytical, observational and practical ones, including interviews with a focus group consisting of 15 people. The use of these design methods identified that the biggest sources of concern amongst the target group were those related to the drying of dishes washed by hand, which led to the development of a dish rack with built in dryers. The design of this product was based on the testing of potential technical solutions and feedback from the focus group, resulting in a kitchen appliance that is uniquely adapted to the needs of single households with limited kitchen space. This design was then presented through sketches, virtual 3D models, and a physical prototype.

    Cobalt Stories: Unearthing narratives through critical research and artistic practice2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project is an exploration of practices around the critical raw materialcobalt, it’s history, and current relevance in Swedish discourse. Critical raw materials are identified by the European Commission as materials of high importance to the EU’s economic system as well as the high risks related to their supply and production. As the demand for cobalt grows due to it’s usefulness in rechargeable batteries in for example smartphones, laptops and electric cars, the metal is predicted to become scarce in a near future. In Sweden there is a discourse on whether or not to mine for cobalt, among other earth elements, locally, and the industry is lookingfor ways to recycle old rechargeable batteries at larger scales to secure the resource. The criticality of cobalt does not only concern supply and economic importance however. In Congo some mines have been reported to still be dug by hand, under extremely poor conditions and risking the health and safety of the workers, as well as the surrounding societies. Through a critical research and design process these topics are explored alongside the more locally known use of cobalt oxide as a vibrant blue colour pigment for ceramics and glass. With the process I aim to create a design that engages with the criticality as well as a designerly fascinationwith the material. The end result being a speculative design fiction of the mythological creature cobelt, and how complex narratives can be unearthed in craft based practice.

    Älska din nässla: Ett projekt om en hållbar dryck och dess visuella identitet2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 12 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    På grund av bland annat övergödning finns det en ökad mängd kväve i regnet som faller på vår jord. Detta ändrar förutsättningarna för växtlighet. Ogräset brännässlan växer snabbt av den allt mer näringsrika jorden och får då en fördel gentemot andra växter. Genom att ta vara på den starka och outnyttjade råvaran, som jag anser att brännässlan är, vill jag agera hållbart både för människan och naturen. Jag vill kommunicera växtens goda egenskaper, som exempelvis högt näringsvärde via en nässeldryck. Formgivningsarbetet innefattar en grafisk profil samt en förpackning till en mousserande nässelnektar med vinkaraktär.

    En lokal produkt verkar för ett hållbart samhälle. Skandinaviens traditionella och naturliga kök kallas för ”New nordic cuisine”. Ett ökat intresse för lokal mat, hälsosamma drycker och hållbarhet bereder väg för ogräs på menyn.

    Jag marknadsför drycken i en PET-flaska svept med mönstrat papper. Förpackningens nässelmönster ska illustrera växtens vilda natur. PET valdes för att minska vikten vid transport och papper för att ge flaskan ytterligare en taktil dimension, samt en exklusivitet. Fokus har legat på det undersökande arbetet. Hur marknadsför man hållbarhet? Fält som jag har arbetat inom är bland annat: hälsa, semiotik, förpackningsdesign, materialundersökningar och begreppet ”rural urbanism”. Min slutsats är att nässlans många positiva egenskaper är en del i vår hållbara utveckling.

    Abstract [en]

    In this project I have looked into visual communication and how it can be used to raise awareness about sustainability. I have cooperated with the Swedish animal rights organization Djurens Rätt to develop a brochure that reveals the myths about veganism, and in a fun way informs the reader of something that is not fun. The brochure is pocket sized, but can be unfolded into a poster to put on the wall as informative decoration. This will encourage people to use it longer than just as a regular brochure. The report covers the environmental and health effects of consuming animal products and describes the working process of the project.

     

    Key words: Veganism, sustainability, visual communication, brochure, Djurens Rätt
