    Abstract [sv]

    En möbel som har ett tydligt program, en tydlig funktion kan vara begränsande. I min metod har jag utgått ifrån en möbel och förbisett dess program för att vidga mitt sökfält när jag har gjort om den. Jag har sett begreppen funktion, upplevd funktion och materiell funktion som värden som går att höja eller sänka. Möbelns nätverk av komponenter har tillåtits bli instabilt för en stund, för att sedan se till helheten och göra nätverket stabilt åter igen - programmet får komma tillbaka men med en ny gestaltning.

    Abstract [en]

    In an interdisciplinary setting, participants from the fine arts, physics, design, biology, culinary arts and mathematics met to explore a two-fold project involving nano and haptics. Using methods that interlace macro- and nano-scale phenomena and technologies, we were able to develop a physical, embodied relationship to a world that is far beyond the direct sensation of touch and human interaction. During this three-year project, a core team of participants developed the following experimental approaches and methods: Aesthetic labs, Surrealist games, Nanofabrication, Infectious formgiving, Process video documentation and Performative staging.

    With access to nanofabrication laboratories, the team explored form using deposition and etching tools on the tip of a strand of hair as a physical, tangible point of departure. Creating tangible relationships with nano phenomena and creating token imagery makes these invisible parts of our world more accessible and workable on a wider and more visionary scale.

    Given the strict protocol in the NanoFabrication Center and the general principle of working flat and clean in such environments, the methods applied by the NanoForm project the haptic approach, the use of dirty human material in a sterile environment and above all the open-ended manner of searching and acting uncovered new territory and gave this project an extraordinary position in the nano research community.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the need for better and more accurate methods of recording and analyzing the visual experience of architectural space. PERCIFAL (Perceptive Spatial Analysis of Colour and Light) is an ongoing project that aims at developing a method of analysis that can capture coherent spatial experiences of colour and light. The starting point for PERCIFAL is a method of visual evaluation of space and light, developed by Professor Anders Liljefors at the former department of architectural lighting at KTH Architecture. PERCIFAL is based on direct visual observations and the recording of these observations by verbal-semantic descriptions using a questionnaire. It has been developed primarily as an educational tool, but we see in it potential for a design tool for professionals as well as for an analytical method for research. The first test results, conducted in Sweden, Norway and Finland, show that the method has significant pedagogical merits and that it allows interesting comparisons between physical measurements and visual experiences of space, light and colour.

    Habits and Habitats: Crafting Through a Prism of Culture Shock2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a text about a work of art, “The Room”, and about the process that brought it about. The process includes experiments in clay bodies, mixing different elements with the base clay in search of a material both suitable to work with in terms of texture and color, but also rich in less tangible qualities, as I mix in elements which carry a set of values of cultural identity.

    The text follows the path towards development of the final piece during the two-year course of the master program at Konstfack. During these two years, external factors such as dealing with the issues of culture shock, and searching for a place to live, interfere with my way of thinking, leading to unexpected turns in the direction of my artistic process.

    Searching for an apartment finds me standing in strangers' apartments as they sell their homes, their ways of life and their house rules. These sometimes awkward meetings provide a good starting point in my research of people's habits and habitats. In trying to understand some elements of Swedish culture, I become aware of the fact of my own culture and start thinking about it from an outside perspective.

    Eventually, the central question of the essay crystallizes: Who will carry on the traditional craft techniques of my home country? Romania is the rare place in Europe where crafts are still being practiced as they have been for hundreds of years, in the villages by crafts persons leading traditional lives.

    As the villages are emptied of young people, moving into cities, and as Romania as a whole is drained of a large part of its young and ambitious generation, moving to other European countries for jobs and education, a trend that I am of course part of, the traditions that I have taken for granted, growing up with my grandmother in a traditional village, become threatened.

    The answer to the question is a simple as it is demanding: I have to be part of the future of Romanian crafts. To document them, understand them, and incorporate them in my art. For this purpose, I undertake an investigative research trip. The text presents my findings about the crafts, and about the people working to document and preserve the traditions. The research trip is also presented in the movie “Six days in Romania”, which I include as an appendix to the essay.

    Over the course of two years, several short-term art projects have been completed within the master program. They are presented in the form of an interview with myself. Looking back at these projects, they become explained as necessary steps in preparation for the final piece, a viewpoint very different from the utter confusion that was the dominating feeling of at least the first year of the course. The interview tries to give insight into the non-linear process that is the creative work.

    Finally, in a poetic description of the final piece, I let my art speak for itself in a very literal way. In giving voice to the piece, I try to access truths hidden even to myself, in an effort to be as transparent as possible about the value of my efforts.

    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.

    Large-scale interaction with a sound installation as a design tool2017In: AM '17 Proceedings of the 12th International Audio Mostly Conference on Augmented and Participatory Sound and Music Experiences, New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017, Vol. Part F131930, article id a35Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present an installation done in collaboration with Volvo Cars® for the international motor shows in Geneva, New York, and Shanghai during spring 2017. To envision and produce a future car sound for silent vehicles, users were given high-level control of a sophisticated synthesizer through playing with an attainable and inviting “color book”-inspired interface. The synthesizer algorithm was designed to dynamically create a rich mix of looped sounds that could blend with a sonic background scenery that had ecoacoustic validity, and that could metaphorically align with the visual elements. The installation ran faultlessly for around thirty days and with tens of thousands recorded sessions.

    SYN-TES: human colour and light synthesis. Towards a coherent field of knowledge2010In: Colour and light in architecture: 11-12 November 2010 : proceedings / [ed] Zennaro, Pietrto, Verona: Knemesi , 2010, p. 235-240Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The research project SYN-TES aims at contributing to a theoretical development transforming the field of colour and light into a coherent field of research. This includes the identification of important problems and the development of theoretical and methodological tools for the trans-disiplinary understanding necessary to solving them. Special emphasis is put on the spatial interaction of colour and light in architecture.

    The work has the form of seminars/workshops where colour and light specialists from different academic disciplines (six Nordic universities) and companies (light sources, colorimetric standards, window glass) examine different aspects of the problem complex. Sub-projects deal with the epistemology and concepts of colour and light, with methods for analysing colour and light in existing architectural spaces and with the relationship between energy and light quality.

    Abstract [en]

    The research question is: "How to develop and apply acoustic artefacts and design method-ologies for improving soundscapes in urban outdoor spaces?" In the project, this research question is limited to one specific type of urban outdoor space – city-park – and to two types of acoustic design artefacts. These are: I. Dynamic promotion of qualitative site specific sounds (e.g., the overall site specific sonic atmosphere, sounds from activities, birds and fountains), which creates an improved soundscape. II. Sound-art installations, that creates de-limited auditory sub-spaces within the park/square.

    Acoustic Design Artifacts and Methods for Urban Soundscapes: A Case Study on the Qualitative Dimensions of Sounds2012In: Proceedings of Inter-noise 2012  "Quieting the world's cities".: Proceedings of a meeting held 19-22 August 2012, New York City, New York, USA. / [ed] Burroughs, C, New York, USA: Institute of Noise Control Engineering , 2012, p. 1-12Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Noise is steadily on the rise in urban settings, creating a potential health hazard as well as being a nuisance. In major European cities, noise levels are so high that the majority of urban parks can no longer truly serve as recreational environments, a problem the WHO and the EU are attempting to address. This study explores various strategies that promotethe sustainable development of urban soundscapes at locations meant for rest, recreation, and social interaction. How are people affected by the combined effects of traffic and nature sounds in urban parks? To this end, we adopted a new track – the use of interdisciplinarymethodology – bringing together architectural analysis and artistic experiments, along with psychoacoustic methodology to evaluate aesthetic, emotional, perceptual, and spatial effects. A large-scale case study was conducted at a city park to explore if and how subjects are affected by purposely distributed sounds. The working hypothesis was that it is possible to cancel out traffic noise by affecting aural perceptions using a process known as informational masking. Our long-term objective is to create a scientific foundation for action plans, both pre-emptive and trouble-shooting, targeting parks and other similar public spaces that provide a relaxing environment.

    Acoustic design in Commercial Space2006In: ICSV13 Proceedings, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for this paper is to discuss and challenge the visual dominance in architectural thinking, and to raise competence among architects and planners on sound and sound environment issues. To promote a sustainable urban environment,sounds must be integrated in the complexity of urban design and development. Therefore,it is especially important to integrate acoustic and architectural analysis.

    The paper focuses on urban public space as well as indoor public pathways, communication space and semi-public commercial space, e.g. shopping malls, wherereliability on sonic orientation may be crucial. For these kinds of collective spaces, I argue, it is especially important to integrate acoustic and architectural analysis. Their sonic conditions are often loud, blurred, and confusing, with little correspondence between visual and aural perception, and with weak articulations of spatial dimension, distance, borders, and orientation. If not cared for, the result may be increasing sound disturbance, lack of people’s moving through the areas, dangerous differences between day and night use, disorientation for several user groups, and segregation.

    The paper is integrated in the ongoing research project, Transmission, executed by Urban Sound Institute (USIT), financed by Swedish Research Council. Results will hopefully deliver good examples and operative methods to be used by architects, planners and acousticians. The paper is also a result of ongoing projects and research at the acoustic consultancy company Ingemansson Technology AB, Sweden

    Redesign of One Atmosphere: What do you want to hear?2008In: Faire une ambiance / Creating an atomsphere: Communications / Proceedings, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In an ongoing research project the design of acoustical atmospheres in large indoor spaces are investigated. The research question is: “How to redesign one sonic atmosphere into a variation of sub-atmospheres in large indoor spaces?” This question is especially valid for spaces such as semi-public commercial spaces (e.g. shopping malls), libraries, airports and communication spaces. The sonic atmosphere in these collective spaces is often loud, blurred and confusing, with little correspondence between visual and aural perception, and with weak articulations of spatial dimension, distance, borders and orientation. Together the different sound sources within these spaces generate a sonic hubbub. Even though such spaces comprise of several types of activities, the sonic atmosphere is the same all over the place.

    Hence, this research project focuses on design of sonic variations of the atmosphere; i.e., site specific sounds that deal with qualities such as communication, comfort, orientation, identity and privacy. The objective is to develop and test an interdisciplinary design methodology, which comprises a number of co-related methods; e.g. acoustic measurements, architectural site analysis, as well as virtual modeling and representation (visual and acoustic) of the space. The main part of the project is the virtual modeling and representation. It connects software that handles architectural 3D-modelling (SketchUp) with the Catt-Acoustic software, used for prediction and auralization.

    The research project also includes a case-study, which comprises proposals for redesign of a congress centre (Scandic Infra City), situated north of Stockholm. The proposals –consisting of architectural elements, sound installations (additions of sounds) as well as acoustical measures – will be demonstrated in a virtual model. The presumed effect is a differentiation in terms of a variety of sonic sub-atmospheres within the congress centre. The methodology developed in the project is intended to function as a tool for design measures of large indoor spaces. It is an interdisciplinary tool in that it supports acousticians as well as architects. The case-study may serve as a pilot model for future applications of redesign of the sonic atmosphere in large indoor spaces.

    This paper is a result of a research project, executed by the acoustic consultancy company ÅF-Ingemansson and the University College of Arts, Crafts & Design (Konstfack), Stockholm. The project has funding from the White’s Foundation for research and ARKUS, a Swedish foundation for the improvement of qualifications within architecture.

    Room acoustic design in open-plan offices 2009In: Proceedings of the Institute of Acoustics Volume 31 Pt.3, St. Albans, United Kingdom: Institute of Acoustics , 2009, Vol. 5, p. 2954-2959Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a Nordic cooperation project the acoustical conditions in open-plan offices was investigated. Measurements have been carried out in five open plan offices accompanied with an inquiry gathering the subjective judgments by the staff. A program for the acoustical measurements was designed specifying how to perform the measurements and which type of parameters to measure. The acoustical parameters included in the measurements are Reverberation time T20, Early Decay Time (EDT), Clarity (C50), Speech transmission index (STI), Speech intelligibility index (SII), Privacy Index (PI), Rate of spatial decay of sound pressure levels per distance doubling (DL2 ), Excess of sound pressure level with respect to a reference curve (DLf), background noise levels in occupied and unoccupied offices. In two of the offices are furbishment program was carried out. Measurements as well as questionnaire were accomplished after refurbishment. The effect on room acoustic parameters DL2 and DLf and on subjective judgments by the staff will be presented in this paper.

    Abstract [en]

    The research question is: “How to develop and apply acoustic artifacts and design methodologies for improving soundscapes in urban outdoor spaces?” In the project, this research question is limited to two specific types of urban outdoor spaces – city-park and city-square – and to two types of acoustic design artifacts. These are: I. Dynamic promotion of qualitative site specific sounds (e.g., the overall site specific sonic atmosphere, sounds from human activities, birds and fountains), which creates an improved soundscape. II. Sound-art installations, that creates delimited auditory sub-spaces within the park/square. The purpose and method is: 1. To provide two case-studies of artistic soundscape improvement, one in a noise polluted city-park and one in a city-square. The case-studies will serve as models for future applications of the new acoustic design artifacts. 2. To create and validate an innovative acoustic design methodology based on state-of-the-art real-time acoustic simulation tools integrated into the design process. The methodology will be validated in psychoacoustic listening experiments and field studies. 3. To determine the potential of the two acoustic design artifacts (I Dynamic promotion of qualitative site specific sounds, and II Sound-art installations) for providing pleasant and restorative soundscapes, in order to strengthening the social interaction as well as the spatial and aesthetical qualities in noise polluted city parks/squares. The present project beats a new track by combining acoustic design with sound art research, integrating methodologies based on real-time acoustic simulation and application of psychoacoustic methodology for validating simulations and for evaluating perceptual, emotional and behavioural effects on visitors to public open spaces. The ongoing research project, financed by the Swedish Research Council, is executed by the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack), Gösta Ekman Laboratory – Stockholm University and Karolinska Institutet and the Interactive Institute, all in Stockholm, Sweden.

    Modelling the Shopping Soundscape2011In: Journal of Sonic Studies, ISSN 2212-6252, E-ISSN 2212-6252, Vol. 1, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article’s pivotal theme is: “How to compose a site-specific sound-art installation for a commercial space in order to improve conditions, while taking perceptual, social, aesthetical, temporal and spatial criteria into account”

    The interdisciplinary, art-based research approach is derived from the concept of acousmatics, i.e. the process of apprehending any sound, the source of which is invisible. Acousmatic perception concerns the everyday identification process; when lacking visual contact with the sound source, we automatically seek references, such as social (what produces the sound and what is my relation to it?), aesthetical, spatial and temporal (e.g. orientation and demarcation). The acousmatic concept identifies phenomena based on individually, culturally and spatially conditioned experiences.

    Today, a shopping culture dominates urban space. Indoor malls expose us to all types of acousmatically perceived sounds: jingles, signals, music and muzak from public loudspeakers, mobile devices, etc. In this respect, one could claim that the soundscape of the shopping culture embodies an acousmatic environment.

    In 2009, the research and sound-art group Urban Sound Institute (USIT) created a permanent sound installation in a shopping mall (Gallerian) located in downtown Stockholm. This installation serves as a case study for the present paper. The artistic assignment involved the creation of a meeting place without material devices as well as the enhancement of the overall atmosphere. The research objective was to elucidate different qualities of the sound installation in regard to the acousmatics of the shopping mall, promoting discussions on the articulation of sound-space configurations in relation to time and site-specific context, issues on musical-architectural qualities as well as objective, subjective and inter-subjective interrelationships between the experience of the sound-art installation and the experience of the shopping mall soundscape. Other applied, interrelated concepts are metabolic environment and masking- and cutting effects.

    Colours in Amish Quilts2015In: Proceedings of AIC 2014 - Interim Meeting: Color, Culture and Identity: Past, Present and Future / [ed] Georgina Ortiz, Citlali Ortiz, Rodrigo Ramírez., Mexico City: AMEXINC , 2015, p. 141-147Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Amish religious movement have its roots in the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. The Amish people are anabaptists and have strict rules for their way of life. They were persecuted in Europe and Amish groups emigrated to Pennsylvania. Today the most traditional part of the movement – the Old Amish People – lives in Lancaster County west of Philadelphia, USA. This paper describs a study of the colours in Old Amish Quilts, traditional Amish patchwork quilts used as bed covers. The patches are single-coloured fabric pieces forming clear symmetrical patterns with deep and strong colours. The quilts are important in Amish culture; they are made for the bride’s wedding chest. Nowadays traditional Amish quilts also are made for turists as wall decorations – “wallhangings”.

    The selection of quilts for my survey consists of five Old Amish Quilts from Lancaster Heritage Museum and The American Quilt Study Group, 15 quilts, at that time, belonging to The Esprit Collection and eight new quilts with traditional patterns (wallhangings). The colour analysis was carried out using Natural Colour System (NCS) with the aim of identifying general principles for selection of colours.

    The analysis shows that most hues are located in the lower part of the colour circle ・from red (R) to green (G), and most nuances - with relatively high degree of blackness or chromaticness - in the lower part of the colour triangle. Colour choice is often dependent on moral or religious preferences. For example, in quilts from Lancaster County, yellowish colours are - as representing ・hochmut・ (arrogance) - regarded as bad colour choice.

    The strong colours in Old Amish Quilts have no counterpart in public life. In Lancaster county Amish people wear black, brown and dark blue clothes and their wagons are black; colourfulness is restricted to the bedrooms and the private sphere.

    Colour and light in space: dynamic adaptation and spatial understanding2011In: Proceedings of AIC 2011- Midterm Meeting of the International Colour Association, Zurich, Switzerland (www.aic-colour.org). / [ed] Verena M. Schindler and Stephan Cuber, 2011, p. 485-488Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on our own observations and on scientific and scholarly references this paper discusses the appearance of colour constancy and the adaptation of colour and lightness in space. It presents part of an ongoing work, the aim of which is to formulate a spatially based colour knowledge. Our scientific approach is holistic and mainly directed towards colour and light phenomena as such, not towards underlying physiological processes. Earlier research has discussed lightness perception in colours very near neutral grey, with so low chromaticness that you can ignore the hue. In our research we have found that surfaces with nominally chromatic colours under special circumstances can be perceived as white and thus serve as anchors for perception of other colours in the field of vision. We also discuss how distinctions are made between perceived colours caused by on the light colour and such caused by the surface qualities. What we call adaptation is not limited to basic perception. Experience of colour in space is both perceptive and cognitive, as part of interaction between the individual and the world on many levels.

    Bring postcykel2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Postcykeln har inte ändrats mycket under sin livstid. Material, geometri och designen är nästan densamma som för hundra år sedan. Vad är det som gör att dessa cyklar förblir sig lika? Skillnaden nu är att man använder sig av olika transportmedel för olika typer av utdelning och olika områden.

    Nu har man bilar, mopeder, el-bilar etc. men man använder fortfarande cykeln till mycket utdelning.

    Vilka fördelar har cykeln som de andra inte har? Frågar du mig så skulle jag svara att den ärmiljövänlig, billig, bra för fysiken, effektiv vid rätt användningsområde och framför allt rolig att använda.

    Att vara brevbärare idag innebär ett tungt och slitsamt arbete. Många olika moment som skagenomföras, bland annat utdelning av post på cykel, springa i trappor och många tunga lyft.

    Jag ville utgå från att se hur brevbärare arbetar idag och vilka problem de upplever med bland annat cykeln.

    The urban hens: En social mötesplats för att skapa förståelse för matens värde och en cirkulär process2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Varje år slänger svensken 74 kilo mat per person. För att

    förstå vad och varför vi slänger mat gick jag igenom vad

    ett hyreshus slänger i soprummet. Bland den slängda

    maten kunde jag se att de boende äter mycket ägg och

    tillsammans med de boende bestämde vi oss för att dem

    skulle testa att bli hönsägare. I mitt designarbete har jag

    designat ett modulärt hönshus och ett driftsystem för att

    de boende i hyreshuset tillsammans ska ta hand om höns

    och ge sina matrester till hönorna. Jag har undersökt vad

    de boende behöver för skapa gemenskap kring huset

    och på bäst sätt sköta driften. Med insikter från denna

    prototyp designade ytterligare ett modulärt hönshus,

    denna gång matas hönsen på Konstfack med Konstfacks

    restaurangs matrester. Jag kallar projektet ”The

    urban hens” och vill med detta projekt skapa en social

    mötesplats och verka för en mer cirkulär matekonomi

    som kan öka förståelse för matens värde.

    Psychoacoustic Evaluation as a Tool for Optimization in the Development of an Urban Soundscape Simulator2010In: Proceeding AM '10 Proceedings of the 5th Audio Mostly Conference: A Conference on Interaction with Sound Article No. 3 ACM New York, NY, USA, New York, USA: ACM Digital Library, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper will discuss the use of psychoacoustic evaluation as a tool for optimization of the soundscape simulator developed in the Listen project. The listen project is a three-year research project focused around developing a demonstrator, which auralizes the sound environment produced by road and railway traffic. The resolution of the parameter space of the simulator heavily influences the performance of the simulator. The perceptual resolution of the parameter space is investigated and the resolution is adjusted accordingly. The most important parameter is velocity. Adjustments of the resolution of this parameter alone gives a 60% reduction of the usage of memory

    Ceramic Speaks in the Street2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bricks, wall stones, pavement panels and slabs: those are standardized objects andelements, having the certain function and usage, ‘puzzle’ details constructing thearchitectural and urban environment.

    During the work on my master degree project I took those elements and their application inurban context as basic ‘pivots’ for expanding the communicative possibilities of ceramic .Thesimplicity of their shape and form plays the framing role for those text pieces which I reflectin and trough clay. I create my own bricks and stones, pavement tiles/slabs to use them asmediators between me and a viewer; to brought up and share my thoughts, writtenfragments, metaphorical statements, which together build up sort of an achieve of ourcommon communicative experience, which of cause keeps space for personal interpretationand reading.

    I use street space as a free stage which is opened for discussions, argument, opinions, andlyrical remarks. I came to the point that my objects as urban interventions should not onlytag my presence at the particular place but also work together with the surrounding they arebrought to. Therefore I decided to work with the idea of ‘rebuilding’, ‘filling up missing-brick spots’, and ‘exchanging broken elements’.

    XS architecture versus XL furniture: the scale in-between2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The manipulation of space, materials and issues about shape, color, texture and gravity are common to architecture and furniture. For my degree project, I examine the three-dimensional territories of architecture and furniture. I investigate how the notion of architecture can influence furniture design, or the other way around. Many times, architects cross the boundary from building to furniture design to try and challenge themselves with different scale as same as designer. With my project, I don’t want to cross the border between them, but rather seek the space in-between the two territories, where design and architecture are blended.

    I’m intrigued by particular spaces and things when they can’t be classified exactly; something in-between. It leaves me with curiosity, inspiration and space for imagination. My project can be seen as something in-between because it is hard to define. Whether it is extra small architecture or an extra large piece of furniture, it is somewhere in-between these aspects of scale and function.
