  2. 2. 2007 - 2008 |master degree project| Hot Stuff – Cordless Kitchen Appliances for Ind uction Stove Tops The Hot Stuff project was about inducti Induction stove top +mechanical soluti on stove tops and how ons = cordless kitchen appliances it could be used as an energy source for small appliances in the kitchen. Imagine a cordless kitchen. Process I started my Masters Thesis project rese arching people’s relationship to small kitchen appliances. Most responders answered that the appliances were, due to the cord, hard to store, and that the need for sockets incr eased by the number of appliances. As a result, the kitchen was full of messy electrical cords and plugged-in appliances. This knowledge, together with the eme rging trend of installing electromagnetic induction stove tops in modern kitchens, inspired me to research into a potential use of the induction stove top for running small cordless elec trical kitchen appliances. The result was that with som e development of the stove top it could in theory be used as an energy source. The magnetic field in the induction stov e top could, apart from the use of generating heat in a ferr omagnetic material, also be made able to rotate magnets. Bas ed on this theory, I have developed a conceptual range of cordless, ceramic kitchen appliances that are designed to co-fun ction with induction stove tops, potentially without any elec trical components within the product itself.

  6. 6. 2006 |workshop| IKEA During the fall of 2006 a selected gro up of students at LUID got the opportunity to work with IKEA on a furniture project. The theme from IKEA was to design ”Swedish” fur- niture. My process started with finding pictures that represented the cultural heritage. My idea was to make a side table/stool that would be slim eno ugh to fit into a hallway, yet wide enough to fit two people. I also wanted a piece of furniture that would look good not only as a single piece, but also would create an interest- ing connection between two or three pieces in a repeti- tion.

A cooperation between KMUTT design school in Bangkok, Lund University and the Swedish Trade Federation. As a result of this pro ject I later freelanced with layout for an exhibition and a book for the Swedish Trade Federation, in 200 5 and 2006.

  10. 10. 2005 |honorary mention| |workshop| |exhibition| Cup by Cup -easy dosage kettle When filling a electric water kettle to heat a cup of water, we usually heat more than we nee d. The behavior seems to be that Every time we boil more than we use, the amount of energy wasted each time is relatively little, but when everyone acts in this way? -We seem to need some help with our quantity estimation. My concept is based on the idea of incl uding a measuring cup in the kettle, to make it easier to measure small amounts of water for tea, coffee, soup etc. This way it’s easier to use less electricity for this daily behavior and as a bonus mak e the user more aware of the quantity needed . This entry won an honorary mention in the 2006 ”Saving the planet in style” award.

  12. 12. 2005 > 2006 |freelance| Jewelry box The idea behind these silver pieces was to design easy -to-produce products, with minimal mat erial use. To do this my strategy was to play wit h shadows and hollowness. The spin-off was that I had to learn the skill of silver- smithing, end up with a whole box fille d with jewelry (some of them here to the right). -and sold about a hundred pieces.

Our idea was to integrate the IDEON logotype into a pattern for a wallpaper. This award winning entry was designed as a 3-day workshop together with Kajsa Bobjer and Sofie Collin in 2003.

  15. 15. 2008 |honorary mention| Siamese Chicks brooch Sweet chicks on thin black acrylic sha ring one heart. They mean nothing but display Love, Life and Companionship, all in the eyes of the beholder. The brief from the producer Ponoko was to create a stunning piece of jewelry that used the ir laser cutting process. My ambition was to design a piece that made people smile. Quick and dirty design work. . And the respond from the jury was; “Humorous concept that provides som e light relief to the world”. “Siamese Chicks Brooch made me gigg le”. The concept won an honorary mention in “The Ponoko Jewelry Design Challenge ”
  16. 16. 2005 fold and cut plan |competition entry| Band-aid - Salvequick packaging The challenge was to design a band-aid for active youth. We wanted the package to be easy to open on-the-go and that held the band-aid in place. We decided to go with a pocket sized package that had the same dimensions as credit card . That could be opened and shut with one hand. This entry was designed as a 3-days wor kshop together with Emilie Hallgard for the Paper Province Packaging Award in 2005. damn
  17. 17. 2009 |freelance| CD cover - graphical illustration of music Two men that live and breath through their guitars. -This is the backbone of the 4-man ban d Woodnote. For the Woodnote’s release I made cov er illustrations for their CD. To do this I asked them to send me pict ures; anything and everything that meant something for them. I received a mix of colors, laughing frie nds, feet in water, backstage snapshots and light phe nomenons. From that material I sampled motives in relation to the meaning of the band name (likene ss to the call of a bird) and turned the illustration into a forest-like scene, with little animals in the details .
  18. 18. 2004-2009 Print Work In several projects there has been a nee d to hand over printed material as well as digital . These are a colletion of the books, booklets and inv itations I’ve done. Other than these I’ve also made material for canvas print, posters, tags and informa tionsboards. From several square meters to a stampsiz e print, and from a single fold to hundreds of pages.
