SHORT BIO
I love the feeling of uncertainty. I place myself outside of my comfort-
zone by default, to learn about the unknown. That was how my studies
in Industrial Design began. Some may call it a behaviour of restlessness,
but to me the hunger is a great source of energy.

INTEREST
Sailing, cooking and running

BA PROJECT
Bacholor project industiral design. 12 weeks,
2016
Supervised by Claus-Christian Eghart and
Jan-Erik Svensson (Company supervisor)

ABOUT
The GUSA project was about creating the
new base on which the new Vietnamese
home would be built.

BACKGROUND
The rising middle class in Vietnam is starting
to create a western style home. What
happens when a different culture implements
imported values and products? What would
happen if you create a fusion between the
both worlds?
DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

WALL BED
FOLDING

The base function for the sketch-


ing revolved around the function of
folding up a mattress towards the
wall. The mattress specifications
was already established by UMA
and the sizes were: 200 x 120 x 18
cm

FOLDABLE TABLE
EXTENDING

The challenge for the table was to make


it possible for a 3 to 5 to 8 seating. The
idea of folding and extending it were the
main focus of the development and a lot
of variations were investigated during
the sketching. Due to the production
facilities we had to find a low tech
solution in order for it to be ready for
manufacturing.

FOLDABLE STOOL
COLLAPSING

The collapsible stool became a downsized


version of the table in terms of aesthetics, but
the function was specially developed for the
function of a collapsible stool.

have a 10 angle to prevent the
structure from straightening and

prioritize living space. Then you have the 5 seated state
for small gatherings and the 8 seated state for special
occasions.

PORCELAIN BIRD NEST

PORCELAIN WORKSHOP
CAD & porcelain course. 6 weeks, 2014
Supervised by Andreas Hopf

ABOUT
The workshop was aimed to put CAD into
practical use. Using 3D printing and CNC
milling as tools for casting models.

BACKGROUND
The freedom of 3D printing and CNC milling
gave me the opportunity to manufacture a
truly organic shape. With the inspiration taken
from nature I also wanted to create something
for nature. I decided to make a birds nest.
SKETCHING & IDEATION
The sketching revolved around the
shape of an peeled clementine.
With some experimentations on the
proportions I soon determined a certain
level of sections and profile.

CAD MODELING
The base model for the mold was made
in Autodesk Alias Automotive. The
model had a generous draft-angle at the
widest point to make the mold-making
easier.

DESIGN PROJECT B
Design methodology course. 8 weeks, 2014
Supervised by Claus-Christian Eghart and
Anna Persson

ABOUT
The handtool project was aimed to refine
our skill sets as designers. This was the first
project of this size.

BACKGROUND
The Gaspari project was a result of extensive
researching and ideation. What began as a
berating device for recreational divers, later
addressed the hazard of getting caught in a
avalanche.
FINAL PROTOTYPE
Mounted on the strap of an ABS backpack,
the Avalanche Lung can be a life-saver for a
skiier or mountain climber.

CONCEPT
The final concept revolved around a cartrage based
design. A replacable oxygen cartrage developed
oxygen and heat when activated by breathing through
the device.

PLAY & DESIGN


Design for children. 10 weeks, 2015
Supervised by Peter Barker

ABOUT
The Play and Design project was about
addressing an issue presented for children in
the ages between 2 and 8 years, and solve it
with a product.

BACKGROUND
The Kids Knife Project was a result of
research around kids and their eating habits.
The research showed a lack of knowledge
about cooking and eating habits, the effect
being poor lifestyle choices that follow the
kids into adulthood.

Emil i Lnneberga

Emil is one of Astrid Lindgrens most famous


fictional character. He is what grown ups
would consider a trouble maker due to his
high output of energy. He lives on a farm
and enjoys carving wooden figurines and his
woodworking skills is way better than any
average boy today. He channeled his excess
energy resulting in a valuable skill.

THE KNIFE
The knife is one of the most diverse tools you can use. The
diversity that ranges from slicing, dicing and cutting, truly
makes it a necessity in the kitchen. Since the knife is poten-
tially dangerous, necessitating proper training and experi-
ence for safe use.

LIGHT & COLOR


Darkness design course. 4 weeks, 2014
Supervised by Olof Kolte.
ABOUT
The light & color project was about creating
light in situations were there is not enough by
using maximum 3 1W LED.

BACKGROUND
The Little project was about utilizing the
full potential of the camera in your average
smartphone. Creating additional lighting
for that perfect instagram in your home,
could raise the quality of your photos to a
completely new level.
IDEATION & SKETCHING
When you are using additional lighting in a photography, you
usually want to avoid sharp shadows and intense contrast
points. This is usually solved by using a large light emitting
area, but when size is an issue, the format becomes more
complicated

INSTAGRAM SOFTBOX

IDEATION
SCENARIO
Imaging that you want to show the world that you are an
awesome chef. Even better, you want to show the world
that your shitty food tastes and looks like food from a three
star Guide Michelin restaurant. For this task, lighting is of
utmost importance.

SIZE VS LIGHT
Bigger is better, but bigger is bigger. When experimenting with the size, you have to find
a good amount of shadow casting that you can live with and also use to your advantage.
DIFFERENCE
You can get around a size issue by
constructing the softbox in various ways.
Therefore I preformed testing with various
shapes to see what would give satisfying
result.

WELFARE DESIGN
Project at Meddlefart hospitla, Kolding,
Denmark. 8 Weeks. Supervisor Richard
Herriott

ABOUT
The welfare project at Kloding Designskulen
was about finding a design solution for
problems occurring at Danish hospitals.

BACKGROUND
During a visit at a spinal surgery wars i began
asking questions about the patients recovery.
During my research in the subject i found out
that independence meant a great deal for the
senior patients. One issue that the patients
were struggling with was keeping there
hygiene, therefore i wanted to address the
most important part of keeping your hygiene.
Get rid of your shit.
WHY BID ?

WHAT WAS BEFORE TOILETPAPER


Using a bid is fore some nations a part
of their everyday routine. For the Nordic
countries its not. The use of toilet-paper is
bound to tradition, and even though people
with their health in order struggle with it, we
still favour paper before water. Maybe its
because the water up north is colder.

When it comes to benefits, the bid is a clear


winner over the old fashion paper.

70% LESS USE OF TOILET PAPER

MORE HYGIENIC

JAPAN

90% of the household have a


bide installed
USAGE

RELATION TO YOUR ITEMS


The usage of the portable bide is the same
as for a regular squirting gun. You pop the
device open. Fill the tank with water and then
spray away.
DE-STIGMATIZE

RELATION TO YOUR ITEMS


I had the ambition to de-stigmatize the bide
by making it a object that fits well with today
objects. With brushed aluminium and a
monochrome pallet, the products fits in many
everyday situation.

NO SHAME DESIGN
Keep it in you bag, or why not let it peeping
out to show that you have the cleanest bum
in town.
