    Konstfacks uteservering2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kandidatexamensarbete handlar om att gestalta och genomföra en uteservering vid Konstfacks huvudentré. Skolans lokaler ligger vid Telefonplan i Stockholm. Byggnaden som från början var ämnad åt tillverkning av telefonväxlar är ritad av Ture Wennerholm 1940. Sedan 2004 har Konstfack hyrt lokalerna med Vasakronan som fastighetsägare.

    Projektet har sitt ursprung i en tävling utlyst av skolledningen. Tävlingen gick ut på att rita utemöbler till det betongdäck som utgör skolans huvudentré. När det stod klart att vi vunnit tävlingen beslöt vi oss för att genomföra projektet som vårt gemensamma kandidatarbete.

    Projektet innehåller frågeställningar kring hur man översätter ett koncept till verklighet utan att tappa den röda tråden. Det har en förhållandevis enkel grundfrågeställning. Nämligen att det

    finns en befintlig plats där vi ska lösa funktionen uteservering. Det innehåller formgivning och planlösning samt praktiska och tekniska frågor kring utemöbler.

    Det handlar om övning i att driva projekt där vi hoppas komma ut ur arbetet som mer erfarna och säkra inredningsarkitekter och möbelformgivare.

    The Broken Tail On a Lizard2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this project I have investigated how a set of rules can be applied to a particular sight and program. Inspired by the rules of the ’divine ‘proportion I applied its system of repetition and algorithm in a particular site and created a bridge with a diverse program beyond the simple intention of bridging two ends.

    This project is a way of approaching the complexity of designing an architectural space. It is a helping guide on how, through a system I could evaluate and pay attention to spatial qualities.

    My system is based on the divine proportion and its parts. I have broken up the divine rectangle and used the parts to create a structure that connects the tow ends on this specific sight. In this project I have been investigating and testing how a sett of rules can be applied on a sight to crate proportion, composition and rhythm. The classic rule that is about movement in space, giving function to the space, the relation to the human body and a space being more diverse. These rules are the basics of the foundation of or field.

    The metaphor I have used is the broken tail of a lizard, that from the point of where it brakes takes another shape and creates a new structure, overlapping and connecting the old and the new. I have called this ”the nature’s broken proportions”. By that I mean, when the symmetry in the creation in the new tail is broken or reduced, it no longer is a continuation of the lizard’s body in that time and space, but an individually separated continuity with its own symmetry. It exist in parallel and as an extension of its past. The system I have created have helped me to define the boundaries and provided a clear structure of my design. 

    This project is to me about connecting my intuition on how life is withe how I design space. The structure and boundaries provided by this system of ”broken proportions”, has given me the tools to evaluate the quality of the spaces I created. I found freedom in my abstraction of this system by breaking up the logarithmic spiral, which is about continuity. This is a designing tool I used to create my bridge.

    My work is an illustration of a subjective idea, of breaking the continuity in space and time. Through using this system I could evaluate qualities like dimension, proportion, composition, rhythm, direction, sectioning and levels. All these quality’s given by this system, creates an abstract interpretation about my personal view of movement of this bridge.

    Tectonic Ritual: A regrounding in earth, an attempt to shift the anthropocentric gaze from onto to within2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project is an investigation in Goethe`s phenomenological scientific method applied in the observation of the complex structures of fungi and their mushroom fruit through the concept of morphology. It is a regrounding in the attempt to shift the anthropocentric gaze from onto to within. Researching the human desire for ritual that represents the order of primitive man perceived in or projected onto his surroundings from inside out. A state of fusion of identity of the external and internal, with all things living or dead.  

    Our ‘inner worlds’ govern our emotions, thoughts, identities and beliefs which have a powerful transformable capacity for system change in the quest for sustainability. I have explored the material clay for its most direct path from mind to body, stemming from Robert Vischer`s, “Empathy theory,” ‘Einfühlung’ translated “feeling into”. Ceramics, just as Goethe`s methods, involve all elemental life forces, earth, wind, water, and fire for their completion. I’ve chosen to explore the natural object’s dynamic formative activity embedded within, investigating ideas of what seems complete as ‘becoming’, the metamorphic quality inherent in craft, and  proposing an alternative function beyond the obvious purpose of its utility.

    Consumption composites2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Consumption composites is a project in which I want to reflect about the concept of recycling, to explore the idea of a society result of recycling, to see if it could be helpful to think in it in another way.  

    I explore the act of recycling as a statement, as a discourse not as a solution for industrial production waste, the relation between the semiotics of the discarded material and the recycled resulting piece but most the interaction between these two and the final user/ spectator[1].

    By looking at the soprum[2] is possible to see estrange combinations for instance baby pap packages with liquor bottles, political propaganda together with brochures advertising winter sports, a table with beer cans and a painting it. It is a composition in itself is a sort of collage where all possible come together.

    I found inspiring how waste could be classified from one criterion but mixed in other criteria like the cultural and semiotic one. Although there are differences between neighborhoods and municipalities, the half-ton of garbage produced by a Swedish citizen per year is classified by if the material could be recycled, composted, burn, landfilled or if it is hazardous for the environment or humans[3].

    I put the waste together in order to create structures that further on could be used to build either furniture or spaces. I worked only with materials that were classified in the same category for instance newspapers or uncolored glass, keeping as much as possible the original form of the existing material in order to be able to see their original meaning or purpose.

    I noticed that the material transform to something new while keeping some of their form and semiotic properties when it is covered with a sort of layer. Something that reminds me the landfill, where the material is buried and then it is a new beginning but there is some transformation in the landscape that never would be the same.

    This is more an intervention in the materials in their way to their following step either landfill, recycling, burn or compost. The form and statement is the result of consumption from Stockholm where the material was collected and my own aesthetic intentions.

    [1](Debord, 1994)

    [2]Soprum: Swedish word for “garbage room” there are several versions of it but it is basically a room where the garbage can be sorted in different bins.

    [3]Avfall Sverige – Swedish Waste Management, was founded in 1947. It is a stakeholder and trade association in the field of waste management and recycling.

    Attefall-house - Greater than the sum of its parts?2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Attefall-house: Greater than the sum of its parts?

    I am exploring how to create a small scale space which is more than just a functional space, a space that also provides an architectural experience. I am using the Swedish Attefall-house as a case study. This small, permit-free construction comes with a frame and it has clearly defined rules and limitations. The smallness of it allows for experimentation and in the normally hard-regulated Swedish building climate, it provides an opportunity to try out ideas without having to be too serious. I am trying to create this sensory experience by fusing function and context together with selected architects’ and artists’ ideas. What happens when these seemingly disparate ingredients combine? Will the whole be greater than the sum of its parts?

    NESCAR2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I love contrasts and meetings between people. Situations where individual differences are highlighted, affected and shaped by each other.

    In this project I have been working with five characters: the aggressive one, the frightened one, the social one, the reserved one and the proud one. By analyzing the characters I have tried to understand how they are able to meet and agree with each other. The goal has been to create a place where this can happen, but which is also adapted for each respective character.

    The project is based on a field study I did in the summer of 2013, when I lived in a masai village in the northern part of Tanzania. Nescar is the name of a masai women I got to know, is means The one that you can trust. The black color in the masai culture is used for protection against evil spirits, in my project I want it to be a symbol of protection of differences.

    Abstract [en]

    This project is an exploration of our inner emotional world. A work that will study human body language and how humans behave when in different moods. It forms the basis for furniture that has its origin in various states of human emotion.

    The furniture collection comes together under the joint name “Are you”. For me, the expression symbolizes a questioning of a person by the norms of society. A questioning that for me has associations to many strong emotions/emotional mixes. ”Are you” is a work based on emotions embodied in physical objects.

    Abstract [en]

    The simple joy of breathing clean air, sitting on a tree trunk and listening to the birds has become luxury for some. And it seems that the search for true, unspoiled nature gets more intense. But what is it that makes us careless in sustainable management of resources becoming even more limited? For my degree project, I investigate how the use of sustainable resources, created in a sculptural way, can influence the attention for environmental awareness and the appreciation of nature. Communicating the value of trees is what I love to do. The tree itself is evident in my work, showing an expression of care and concern. The hidden stories inside the tree trunk and its biography are a thrill for me. I respond to these growth patterns which I can comprehend. For me, looking at nature with creative eyes is necessary to do what it does so well, provoking us to think differently, with creative statements tempting us to act differently.

    Free your mind: A treatment arena for rehabilitation in prison2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In Scandinavian prisons today there is an increasing focus on the rehabilitation of criminal behaviour. Through work, education and treatment programs the probation services goal is to bring about change and encourage the inmates to live a better life after time served, not simply provide secure custody.

     

    My project is about how interior architecture can contribute to the therapy that is a part of this rehabilitation. With having respect, humanity and tolerance as core values in my project I want to communicate that everyone deserves a second chance and that we can not give up on anyone.

     

    Working with the symbolism and philosophy of basic geometrical shapes within the design phase I have created a separate pavilion on the prison site. The pavilion is the context of the therapy space and is an addition to the existing architecture.

     

    The result is a space that through form, function and material choices has the goal to facilitate the therapy and influence the inmate during the sessions to improve the outcome of the treatment.

    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet handlar om formgivning och konsumtion, om hur mycket vi förbrukar (varför) och om produkternas livslängd.

    Våra produkter är kanske mer miljövänliga nu än för ett par decennier sedan, men vi köper fler. På en kort tid har vårt sätt att konsumera ändrats oerhört.

    En förutsättning för vår konsumtion är att både material och arbetskraft är billigt, vilket är ohållbart i ett längre perspektiv.

    Materialen blir dyrare ju mindre som finns kvar, arbetskraften är bara billig så länge landet den finns i är fattigt.

    Som formgivare kan man känna en problematik i att formge "en sak till".

    I examensarbetet vill jag ta ställning till detta och leta efter lösningar.

    Hur vill jag arbeta som formgivare?

    Weightless: eller på kant med verkligheten2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    På grund av mina tidigare intressen för såväl arkitektur som musik så har jag valt att arbeta med rumslig visualisering av musik. Till ordet rumslig tillkommer i det här fallet även de rörelser som äger rum där. Arkitektur handlar framför allt om att skapa förusättningar för rörelse. Därför har jag valt att likställa de två begreppen.

    Formatet jag valt att arbeta i är film. Jag skapat en kortfilm med dans och musik genom ett nära samarbete med två dansare, en fotograf, en klippare och en kostymmakare.

    I dansen och scenografin har jag bearbetat kontrasterande begrepp såsom natt och dag, avskalad och dekorerad, kontrollerad och okontrollerad samt introvert och extrovert. En stark drivkraft i mitt arbete har varit ett behov att få ifrågasätta de gällande regler och lagar som styr vår verklighet och vår tillvaro. Under projektet har jag insett att det är något som ligger djupt rotat i min personlighet.

    Jag har i denna rapport även redogjort för mitt researcharbete, de skisser samt ideer som lett fram till planering, uppbyggnad av scenografi samt slutligen filmning, klippning och postproduktion av det råa filmmaterialet.

    Mold: kandidatexamensarbete2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Som det ser ut idag kostar arbetskraften mer än materialet vid industriell tillverning av möbler. Materialet som inte passar normen sorteras bort. Det mer och mer låsta systemet som används idag klarar/vill inte bearbeta det material som inte är perfekt. Det är svårt att motivera tiden det tar i förhållande till kostnaden av sparat material. Vi är intresserade av ett annat förhållningsätt av resursanvändning, material, yta, normer, formgivning och förhållande till möbelproducenter. Vårt kandidatexamensarbete bygger på en vidareutveckling av idéer kring ett bord vi tidigare formgivit. Bordets koncept bygger på att spänna ihop obehandlade överblivna lister med metallband till en limfri konstruktion. Iden att använda spillmaterial tycker vi är intressant och tillför ett mervärde. Men när det gäller bordet, då tillverkningen drar mer åt slöjdhållet, blir det mer som poesi. Det tillverkas i för liten skala för att göra skillnad att använda spillmaterial. Därför vill vi ta det ett steg längre och förhålla oss med spillmaterialet i relation till industrin och serieproduktion.

    Abstract [en]

    I have always been told that form follows function. But does it have to be that way? I decided to see it  from another angle.

    Kinesics is a term form non verbal komunication. In my thesis project I have been working with body language in furniture.  I believe that furniture, just like us, has an expression and a character. We often tend to desccribe furniture with the same words as we describe people, for example: "A relaxed chair" or "a cocky table". I wanted to exaggerate the expression by applying body language to my furniture and make them become something more than just a function. I wanted to give them a character and bring them to life.

    Abstraction of a landscape2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Shared spaces and passages. When you move through these kinds of spaces, I see it as moving through a landscape. How this landscape looks like can be very different and what will happen on the way depends on what you will encounter. I find it interesting how we use basic orientation behaviors to navigate and scan our environment. To find our way, find a place to linger or even to gather around. The objects we encounter in the space will often work as indicators and help us to know how to behave in the space; whether we want to find the fastest route, the most comfortable one or to find a place to linger.

    This project is about the creation, use and disposition of spatial objects as elements of a landscape for indoor shared spaces and passages.

    One of the greatest transformations of our constructed physical spaces is taking place now and for a long time to come. The buildings we have created do not serve the needs and conditions of our time. They are exhausted of recurrent renovations and inexhaustible attempts to remodify already given forms, which result in expensive contracts.

    According to new EU-requirements scheduled 2019, no new buildings are allowed to consume more energy than they produce. And more restrictions concerning energy consumption of our existing buildings are raised around the western world to better match our present conditions regarding our decreasing resources. We have overbuilt ourselves with impractical structures that can not be modified for a natural change of our living conditions. They are too static and lack the possibility for rational reprogrammation. Instead of adapting them to future inevitable restruction, we make them even more static through passive housing.

     

    Relevant architectural intelligentsia seem to be a thing of the past where we can find numerous examples of buildings that allows adaptability and room for reprogrammation. Meanwhile temporary refugee camps turn into constant growing cities. Whole cities and landscapes are changed during a day due to natural activities. They too lack potential reprogrammability because of its poor and barbarous approach to human living conditions. Our civilization has all the tools for changing this situation by building in a format that calculates the process of reprogrammation of physical environments. This problematic is not as relevant in furniture or interior, but can still be used with great success to improve our homes and working places. Staticism, in contradiction to reprogrammability, have fundamental values that can not be questioned when used for its’ right purpose, and it is not my intention to replace it. With rational solutions containing the combination of them both we can, and will have to, revaluate the way we construct our physical surroundings.

     

    In my master degree project I am using my theory about reprogrammability to create a set of furniture that allows change in materiality, use, and function. This example should be considered as an exemplification of the thesis in a minor simplified scale rather than an object for actual use. The mounting of the furniture is based on a grid that allows easy assembly and reassembly of the various parts. The separated grids are shaped by their appurtenant c/c measurements (280 mm, 70 mm etc.), and are overlapping each other to allow construction symbiosis.

    Re-Story: The O.T.M.I* project*O.T.M.I = Obsolete Technical Mechanical Item2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The core question in this master thesis is: What happens to the essence of an object when it becomes out of date and is no longer in use? I am addressing the sense of dignity in once meticulously designed technical/mechanical items that now has become obsolete. The intention has been to investigate how to give new meaning to obsolete items and find new eligibility for their existence. 

    The investigation was conducted through the development of a method: collection, analysis, deconstruction, investigation and resurrection of a number of O.T.M.I. (Obsolete Technical Mechanical Items).  

    The resurrection process consisted of the (re-)writing of the objects’ narratives. These stories along with the objects’ parts, spaces and sounds created a frame for a scenography, a soundtrack and characters to act in a film to tell the story.

    As interior designers we have the opportunity to transform space and fill it with stories. Imagination is an important tool: We benefit from having the ability to imagine, for instance, how different surfaces will reflect sound and light. Our imagination is highly visual. So I have transformed my imaginary world of Obsolete Technical Mechanical Items to visual and audial elements that support the content and values of a story through researching the objects, finding how to clarify and support the story. The Re-Story.

    Abstract [sv]

    Finns det föreställningarna av rum och dess befintliga rörelser och struktur? Inom Inredningsarkitekturfinns det ettförhållningssättdär den praktiska funktionen är viktig. Där funktion betyder attvara aktiv i rummet, attkunna beröras av material tex möbler som social struktur för attkanske kunna producera för en konsument/brukare.

    Går det attlösgöra förväntningar och föreställningar från sin ram eller attvidga dessa i den rumsliga aspekteten attfylla något med känsla i stället för en brukande funktion? Om man reducerar funktionen, vilket betyder för mig, om man tar bort möbler och material och bara förhåller sigtill det mänskliga i ettrum. Vad blir kvar? D.v.s. om rummet bara projicerar en stämning, en känsla, ettljus, ett ljud. Är det inredningsarkitektur med utgångspunkt känsla?

    Feel At Home2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today, we spend various types of spaces in a day. It would be private spaces or public spaces. Public spaces have more variety function than private one. One type is for acting with public on purpose which is represented parks, public transportations, and libraries. The other is kind of waiting area, that is taken to go any public space. My project is about the creation of a familiar experience and mood in public spaces in order to enable people to feel more comfortable in unfamiliar public environments. I focus my explorations on waiting areas, like in airports or train stations, where being exposed to unfamiliar space could cause aggravation or even distress while one has to spend time in these unfamiliar spaces.  I try to transfer home feeling, one of the most private spaces, to the public spaces, by using sense of sight, hear, and smell, determinant of atmospheres in certain spaces. Among the sense, I more investigate light and shadows which are related with sense of sight. Unlike common used method in interior design, changing construction, colours, and so on, I try to make combination of real and unreal with light and shadows in one space.

    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet utspelar sig i två huvudsakliga rumskategorier, hallar och korridorer. En gemensam slutsats om de båda rummen är att de är byggda för att lämnas. De kan såklart innehålla rent praktiska egenskaper eller vara nödvändiga i infrastrukturen bakom större kompositioner. Men trots det är den enda anledningen till att du befinner dig i dem, att du är på väg eller väntar på att få röra dig vidare. Som inredningsarkitekt försöker jag hitta potential och mening att förändra upplevelsen. Tankar om att rummets öde är aningen tragiskt ger mig en uppgift som möbelformgivare, jag craftar för att ta mig an rummets problematik. Rummet är en transportsträcka och jag formger ett avbrott. Något som får en stanna upp, roas av en omväg. I mitt gestaltande och formsökande har jag refererat till redan existerande, historiska och nutida objekt som finns eller har funnits i rummen. Jag förändrar dem, gör tillägg. Skiss och formsökande i full skala har varit i fokus. Görande i verkstad har tillåtit mig testa och bygga vidare på idéer. Projektet mynnar ut i ett förslag om en serie av fem stycken furumöbler. Furan formas till gestalter med ornamentaliska kvalitéter. De utförs i limträ med frästa håligheter som dels fungerar som sammanfogningsmetod men ger också plats åt den funktionalitet som bjuder in till interaktion med brukare. Möblerna är mitt sätt som möbelformgivare att ta mig an rummets problematik.

    An Alternative Future of Spatial Materiality2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In our practice the choice of materials is mostly driven by practical reasons, aesthetics and a given budget, and it is often applied rather at the end of the process – rarely is it the driver of any design process. What often gets forgotten is that materials can carry an immaterial layer of connotations. This means that materials are not perceived neutrally but are instead always loaded with certain meanings and values we attribute to them which in return can evoke different emotions in us. In my thesis project I explore the effect of analternative design process that uses materials as the point of departure.Through experimental explorations I have produced my own materials and investigated possibilities to use them in a spatial context. I created different scenarios to speculate about the potential these materials could have. Could they become applicable materials for interior and furniture design as well as for being a carrier of meaning?

    Boundaries and Matter - The intangible and the corporeal

    A space dedicated to contemplation in a public realm

    With a philosophical approach to the topics I aim to absorb the dynamics in the meeting between the intangible and the physical. In the urban contemporary environment that we live in I see a need for a physical context that contrasts the flow of information and inputs that we are exposed to.From this point of view I have created a concept of a space for contemplation, as a reply for both visual as well as mental boundaries that connects both the abstraction of the mind to the corporeal.

    The perception of our surroundings is an acknowledgment and a consciousness of our senses.

    In our everyday life we are constantly surrounded by a flow of impressions. To contrast this I have created a space where you can calmly travel inward & outwards without being disturbed by the constant flow of information.

    This project departs as a statement towards the intense frequency of information inputs in our contemporary surrounding, the stressful act to manage our mental boundaries for what we let in and what we leave out.

    Through this project I wanted to define the abstract spectra of inspirations in the design-process of how I relate to form and the surroundings. Mapping it, formulate and gestalt it. Defining the boundaries to what I see as the scenery of the project. Taking the broad turns of the process leading me to collect bits and pieces from various sources and apply these thoughts in a secondary phase to the actually form-giving.

    Turning the abstract ideas to a space and an object, interpret in two different manners to a pavilion for contemplation and an idea of seating furniture.

    Throughout the process I balance the two poles through reflection from a philosophical angle that I follow up with the sensibility for the tactile sensors in how one perceive a physical object. Leading through historical values and ideas tied towards the spatial dimensions and the various scales in handling space and object. Using the materiality to create a connection to the body and wrapping up to embrace as a protective shield around the body.

    With the gestalt of a boundless space within given dimensions that are not obvious or sharply defined, to instead become an extension of your mind and body. As you become the centre of the space, your thoughts are the boundaries and the spatial dimensions are framing the action.

    Abstract [en]

    The development of stucco ornamentation, compared with other forms of ornament in interior design, has been relatively static after modernism. I want to search for a new idiom, beyond classical stucco depicting verdant greenery and bunches of grapes, and beyond modernist stucco that is reduced to only fulfilling such functions as embedding armature or spreading light.

    In this way I want to reveal to myself and others the possibilities provided by stucco, in many ways a forgotten art. The possibilities of sculpting and creating completely unique moods in rooms.

    Towards an adaptive architecture: When the human body explores a space2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Exploring a space with our body is a strong experience; it is not like looking at a pic- ture of a space or listening to a detailed description of it. Being somewhere physically is a fundamental element involved in our unique and personal perception of a room.

    However, I often feel constrained by social and cultural rules in my bodily explora- tion of spaces. My aim throughout the project is to engage people into sharing their feelings and experiences about space, in order to better understand the relationship between the human body and the architecture in western societies.

    Through an experimental process I am articulating and reflecting upon a design meth- od to dialogue and engage with a large range of people. By using some tools from the field of interior architecture, I am building physical artefacts used as a means to challenge the bodily engagement of the users.

    The analysis of the interaction between the user and the artefacts, constituted the basis for me to elaborate on the two design proposals.

    The process also gives me the opportunity to reflect on my influence and responsibility as an interior architect into promoting, challenging and inviting people to more bodily engagement in space.
