    SKARV2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetet kretsar kring tre huvudkategorier. Hållbarhet, designprocess och kriminalvård. Första delen innehåller informationssökning för att skapa en stabil grund till arbetet. Efterhand övertar ett parallellt arbete med de tre huvudkategorierna som till sist utmynnar i en produktionsfas där tillverkning på Industritextil Job sker för att ta fram en skiljevägg i skala 1:1. Stor vikt läggs vid att sätta sig in i vilka behov som bör lösas på anstalten. Resttextilier från Röda Korset hämtas och metod för hur textilierna bäst hanteras undersöks. En estetisk tilltalande design skapas genom färgkoordinering och urval av material tillsammans med framtagning av produktens formspråk. En del av arbetet har handlat om och testa idéer i full skala och tid har även ägnats åt att besöka företag i tillverkningsindustrin.

    Tordyveln flög i skymningen2014Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tordyveln flög i skymningen är ett konstnärligt arbete där kollektionsarbetet står i fokus. I arbetet undersöks skillnader mellan textil producerad för offentlig miljö och textil producerad för privat miljö. Det handlar till exempel om vilka krav som ställs och hur mönster och färgkombinationer skiljer dem åt. Kollektionen Tordyveln flög i skymningen består av textila mönster för offentlig miljö där handens närvaro och det måleriska uttrycket är genomgående. Olika rytm, olika material och skalor bidrar till en levande och lekfull kollektion. Inspirationen till kollektionen har hämtats ur temat ”Insekter” och tolkas fritt utifrån ett inspirationscollage. Stor vikt och mycket tid har lagts på skissarbetet där olika tekniker har användts för att få fram olika uttryck. Under processen har mönster ställts mot varandra för att kunna se hur de fungerar ihop. Mönster som inte har stämt överens med uttrycket i collaget har valts bort eller arbetats om. Digitaltryck, screentryck och jacquardväv är de tekniker som används för att sedan ta fram kollektionen. Kollektionen innefattar en vävd stor mönsterbild, två digitaltryckta mönster och ett ausbrennertryck i två olika färgställningar och material. Arbetet presenteras som en kollektion textilier i metervara.

    Adding Values, Upholstery Concepts for Automotives Using Smart Textiles2007Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    New textile materials are constantly being brought into the automotive field, and automobile design is a leader in innovative and spectacular developments where smart textile materials are used. The main elements of the current project are textile material research, automotive research, design and development of two upholstery concepts for automotives using smart textiles. The added values are RFI/EMI (Radio Frequency Interference / Electro Magnetic Interference) shielding qualities, light emitting, light reflective and antistatic qualities. Values in the smart-textile area are obtained through choice of material and textile techniques. Transportation textiles are considered high performance technical fabrics, but they must also meet the aesthetic demands of the market. In the current project the design is inspired by Japanese architectural thinking and strives to relate to outdoor environment to reduce the border between indoor and outdoor environment. The inspiration source is water surfaces. The colour setting is also inspired by water surfaces. Material selection is based on the chosen added values, material qualities, appearance and availability. The result of the work is two different upholstery concepts visualizing qualities of smart materials and requests the automotive field. Sprinkle is an upholstery with light emitting, light reflective and antistatic values. The materials used are monofilament, polyester and electroluminescent wires. Wave is an upholstery design with antistatic, light reflective and RFI/Emi shielding qualities. The materials used are stainless steel yarn, rubco and monofilament.

    Tuftade golvsmycken och prydnadskuddar2005Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This work is about getting to know tufting as a technique and to design tufted products for home furnishing. It all began in Finland, where during springtime 2004, I got in contact with the technique of tufting for the first time. A very pleasant meeting that resulted in two carpets and a longing to continue and learn more. It was then that an idea for my final project started to take form. My wish was to design tufted “floor jewelleries” and cushions. I made a base for my project during a design project in autumn 2004. During a stay in New York I got inspired partly from colours and shapes from the Bauhaus movement, partly from the architecture of the city. The geometric forms associated to Bauhaus spoke to me. In New York I got fascinated of the lines and surfaces next to each other on the front of the buildings. The small details were important to the entire impression. The amazing perspectives were also very inspiring. It was a great feeling glancing up buildings that had no end and above all looking down on the top of the buildings and on the streets from the top of Empire state building. The collected material from the design project was then put together with impressions of Swedish nature. So I got the inspiration material that had feeling that was hard, soft, warm, cold, powerful, and fragile. Those emotions have been important to ad to the tufted carpets. Wool was chosen to give the felling of warmth and linen to ad shine. The smooth materials made a nice complement to the strict geometric forms. The group of tufted products contain one big pillow for the floor, seven decorative cushions and four carpets. The pillow for the floor becomes a plain and soft piece of furniture, strict in black and white. The decorative cushion is more colourful and finds its place on a sofa or armchair. The carpets are small and easy to place as “jewelleries” next to or in front of a piece of furniture, on their own, several together, but never with furniture on top. The tufted products fit in both small and big rooms. The little scale makes it easy to change and intensify the expression in a home environment. Through my choice of material I want to give the products a long lifetime. This partly has been a part of the esthetical expression. I have also considered nearby production and ecological alternatives in my choices of materials. A timeless form and colour scale makes the products stand outside trends. That gives the products sustainability and they can be a part of the home for a very long time. The carpets are industrially tufted at Hitex and the cushions are made by me, tufted by hand at Konstnärernas Kollektivverkstad in Gothenburg. An important part of the work was to tuft myself and get a feeling for all the possibilities in that specific technique.

    !ACTION! Investigating the force in fashion2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This degree work aims to tell a story about the force of fashion. Through forced material interactions on body the focus of this study is interaction. Interaction between contrasting materials, body and space and/or catwalk and audience. By forcing materials to act and interact on body this work aims to nd new expressions and ways of making in fashion. To tell this story a design space was made, ‘Wonderland’, a place where all the ‘Wonder Women’ live. These ‘Wonder Women' are like sisters, di erent from the other. The resemblance lies in the interaction and forceful expression. This collection is the result of a thorough material investigation resulting in a lineup of seven looks. Each made in di erent techniques, the possibilities within this study are endless. This work proposes to all within the fashion eld to not be afraid, to step away from the season-hysteria and do what you want. Tell that story, and may the force be with you.

    Deep Impression2019Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The scope of this thesis is to reveal the hidden dimensions of fashion. With the aim to stress the worth of participation and the individual experience of fashion. This work is questioning what we see, and later what is actually there. Through a thorough investigation of the knit technique the relationship of loop and thread (pause and activity) is the focus of this paper. Enhancing the significant qualities of the knitted technique, where material and shape is born simultaneously, the result presented holds a variety of results. With the aim to discuss multiple dimensions this knit investigation is presented in a fashion context. Styled with technical sportswear this work is challenging knitwear -as well as sportswear. By clashing sports connotated materials with the knitted wool, both fields are expanded and new options and expression are presented. The motive of this investigation is to further state the worth of fashion. To create a space for the experience of fashion, stating the various result that is not depending on the presentation on body. This work questions the pre-set truths and conventions of what fashion could be, and our ability to judge what is presented for us.

    : Levande skyltdockor - - En studie av kommunikationen till kunden via butikspersonalens klädsel2014Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    I vårt arbete har vi valt att titta närmare på butikspersonalens klädsel. Vi har varit i kontakt med en mindre modebutik i Varberg, som uppmanar sin personal att endast klä sig utifrån butikens eget sortiment. Avsikten med vårt arbete har varit att svara på hur personalen likt en levande skyltdocka kan kommunicera butikens sortiment och påverka kundens köpbeteende. Vi har genomfört intervjuer med både butikspersonal och butikens kunder. Butiken har fått svara på frågor som rör deras val av kläder och hur de upplever att kunder uppmärksammar vad de har på sig. Kundintervjuerna har gett oss svar på vilka faktorer i personalens klädsel som skapar ett intresse hos kunden. Vår studie visar att personalens klädsel används som en marknadsföringskanal i butiken och skapar en möjlighet att på ett synligt sätt visa upp olika plagg ur sortimentet. Studien visar även att personalens klädsel uppmärksammas och kan ha en inverkan på kundernas intresse för dessa plagg vid ett besök i butiken. Det som framgår vara det viktigaste och mest effektiva i den här sortens kommunikation är att skapa ett intresse och begär hos kunden. Det visar sig att de flesta kunder vill se en snygg helhet i personalens klädsel och det som påverkar kundens intresse mest är om personalen presenterar en stil som kunden själv kan tänka sig att bära. Om denna kommunikation leder fram till ett köp är dock svårare att styrka. Personalen säger att de ofta upplever att kunden uppmärksammar deras klädsel, men att det inte alltid leder till ett köp.

    Neuromarketing: Validity and Morality2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The new way of doing marketing the so -called neuromarketing, which is a combination of neuroscience findings collected for and used in the marketing domain, has raised a lot of support but a lot of critic as well. The research question is focusing on whether the neuromarketing has been an approach of explaining and defining the human behavior, or whether it has transformed to an unethical manipulation of consumers in order to discover the much wanted “buy button” in consumers’ brains. Additionally issues of validity of neuromarketing researches is to be examined as well their purpose of conduction and the use of their findings.

    Communicating with Smells2016Övrigt (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The workshop is about communicating with “Smells”. The smells are intangible. Though these

    are present in their source, which is a material in itself that one can touch, rub, scratch, and

    break free the molecules of smell. From this perspective exploring various ways to feel and

    touch the textiles as we do the source of the smell could lead to the understanding of how

    these smells could be activated differentially when incorporated into the textiles or on the

    other hand designing the textiles with smells by the way of activation through physical

    interaction.

    Purpose and relevance

    We encounter smells and odours in our busy 24/7 life without even realizing the effects of the

    same on our perception of things, people, surrounding environment and thereby our

    behavioral and decision making changes. Nonetheless these smells in a social context play a

    very important role in our lives. If we would take time and consciously smell our surroundings,

    perhaps there would be many odours that would be repelling and make us move away as an

    immediate reflex. While few other odours would be appealing and we would be ready to

    spend some more time in the vicinity to enjoy these odours. Perhaps we can design our

    spaces with the appealing odors varying with our choices and perceptions.

    With the challenge that most of us are grown up learning and practicing our professions using

    visual and auditory senses more than touch, taste and smell. How will we communicate using

    smell as a medium? The aim of this workshop is to apply textile thinking while exploring

    haptic of smell. Smells do enhance our being in an environment; knowingly or unknowingly.

    How can we use this material in our own space? How can we touch this intangible material?

    What are the different ways of incorporating this material? When using textiles and smells, to

    what scales we can work with it?

    Smells: olfactive dimension in designing textile architecture2017Licentiatavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Designing with non-visual attributes challenges ways of representation. This research explores methods for designing with invisible materiality within the research practice, as well as ways of representation through textiles when designing spaces. Exploring textiles and smells within a space, the research program investigates spatial interactions.

    This research focuses on designing embodied experiences using tangible materials as expressions of smells. Through the spatial installations and performances Sight of smell, Touch of smell, and Smell, space, and body movement, haptics were explored as one of the methods of interaction with smells through textiles.

    Through the sense of touch, this research also investigates ways of revealing, activating, and disseminating smells within a space. Smells were purposely added through the methods of dyeing, coating, and printing to the textile materials that did not inherently embody any smells, As a result, tactile surfaces create non-visual expressions of smell. Further ideas of research in this area would explore another perspective of designing with smells in spaces. As an example, by designing textiles being smell absorbers, dividers, and re ectors, could compliment the spatial concepts and deals with the already existing smells in a living environment.

    In this licentiate thesis thinking through the olfactive dimension to design textiles is not only novel for the textile design eld; but also, its proposal for application in the spatial design is quite unique, and o ers a new dimension for spatial design.

    Attraktivt butikskoncept: Vad som bör ingå för att kunden skall trivas och genomföra köp2011Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att handla kläder är något alla människor gör, vare sig det är för att vi måste eller för att det som numera är allt vanligare, för att det är en hobby och för många ett behov som tillfredsställs. Då det på marknaden råder stor konkurrens med allt fler valmöjligheter för den allt mer medvetna kunden och allt fler företag även satsar på postorder som alternativ gäller det för den fysiska butiken att särskilja sig och att ha en fungerande butikskommunikation. Butiker måste skapa en miljö där kunderna trivs och dit de väljer att återkomma och hitta ett sätt att slå igenom det brus av erbjudanden som kommer från konkurrenter. Syftet är att undersöka, beskriva och analysera vilka delar som ingår i ett lyckat butikskoncept. Undersökningen bygger dels på butiksobservationer, intervjuer med butikskommunikatörer och ven en enkät som lagts upp på det sociala nätverket Facebook. Slutsatsen vi kom fram till var att det viktigaste för butiken att tänka på var hur personalen uppträdde mot butiksbesökarna, att de var vänliga och hjälpande utan att vara påträngande. Även att lokalen var öppen, luftig så att det var en god framkomlighet i butiken och en belysning som jobbar med lokalen och visar upp kläderna bra. Varorna skall vara exponerade så att kunden får en överblick över vad som finns i butiken, bra organiserat, lättåtkomligt och gärna upphängda i outfit-kombinationer för att inspirera kunden till merköp eller skapa ett nytt behov.

    The internal conflict of the corporate artist: Balance between artistic - and commercial interests within artistically driven fashion brands2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been a medial success in Swedish fashion during the last years. If one studies these companies they tend to tell another story financially. Regardless of financial or medial success artistically driven fashion brands have been a big part of the development of Swedish Fashion. For artistically driven fashion companies the Artistic freedom tend to be the main driving force and the very reason for establishing their own brand. There is a need to balance between artistic and commercial interests, which could imply that designers need to design more commercially marketable garments to finance the conceptual department. Financial resources can create artistic freedom but bringing in wrong investors could do the opposite. The financial dilemma of gaining economic resources by designing more marketable garments makes the brand image loose credibility since it tend to rely on the artistic direction. Conclusion: Through out the study we have identified that there exist an internal conflict inside the artistically driven fashion designer. The corporate artist exists of the creative mind, which represents the intrinsic values that motivate and inspire the artist. To be able to run a fashion brand the artist also needs to have managerial and entrepreneurial skills to be able to develop. These two perspectives often collide and the designer needs to make some difficult choices.

    Abstract [sv]

    Textile Grid är ett undersökande textildesignprojekt som utforskar olika tekniker och material för att tänja på gränserna i textil. Utgångspunkten är ett enkelt rutmönster som översätts i teknikerna tryck, väv och trikå. Rutmönstret fungerar som en konstruktion i textilen och genom att jobba med kontrasterna mellan hårt och mjukt, samt rörelse och stabilitet utforskas både textilens utseende och rörelse. Resultatet är fem material som viks och formas efter sin egen konstruktion.

    Personalutbildning i butik2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens modebutiker är utsatta för hård konkurrens. För de butiker som använder sig av personlig service som ett konkurrensmedel så ligger fokus på personalens egenskaper och kunskaper. Det allt hårdare klimatet inom klädbranschen bidrar till att det kan vara svårt för butikscheferna att hinna med att utbilda sin personal i den omfattning de önskar. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka huruvida det finns ett behov av ett hjälpmedel för att effektivisera utbildningen av personalen. För att ta reda på detta så genomförs observationer, intervjuer och enkäter med de tre parter som har något att vinna på hjälpmedlet: butikschef, personal och i slutledet kunder. Undersökningarna har genomförts i anslutning till modekedjan Carlings som också är vårt avgränsningsområde. Inledningsvis så genomfördes observationer för att få en förståelse för hur arbetet i butik går till. Butikscheferna tillfrågades via kvalitativ intervju och kvantitativ enkät. Personal och kunder fick svara på en enkät med möjlighet till egna kommentarer. För att sätta detta i relation till tidigare forskning så har vi sökt relevant information i bland annat vetenskapliga artiklar, kurslitteratur och böcker. Kundernas förväntningar och önskemål stämmer till största del överens med vad butikschefen önskar av personalen. Personalen själv har generellt sett ett starkt intresse av att vidareutbildas. En analys och sammanställning av samtliga undersökningar visar att ett behov för en personalhandbok finns. Det optimala innehållet skulle vara att behandla exponering, säljteknik, jeanskunskap och allmän materialkunskap inklusive tvättråd.

    The iconic flower: Deconstruction of iconic flower prints to investigate the relation between form,print and the body through volume, padding and draping to achieve new expressions in dress.2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (konstnärlig kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor degree work explores the interrelation between print and form in fashion design. The aim of this work is to use the deconstruction of iconic flower prints to investigate the relation between form, print and the body through volume, padding and draping to achieve new expressions in dress.

    The work is both textile and design driven and the main focus has been to investigate transfer print technique in relation to drawstrings, padding and quilting with focus to create and enhance different interesting forms in each flower print. Through the use of polyester fabric in different qualities additional possibilities are shown within the techniques.

    The work strives to present a new design process and method that can be seen as a suggestion in how to achieve new expressions in dress. The value of this work is the new way of approaching the print technique in relation to shape within the fashion field. Through the interaction between fashion and textile, the collection challenge the traditional way of creating garments by letting the print decide the result.

    An investigation on consumer behavior and preferences towards apparel, purchase by Indian consumers age 15: 252011Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The Indian economy has grown over the last 10 years with new jobs created in the ITES sector, Biomedical, Automotive engineering, Apparel manufacturing and Civil engineering. The growth is strongly led by Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES); this is supported by the education sector with increase in the number of students enrolling for higher education and large numbers of students graduating every year thus creating a large pool of technical and managerial manpower. The working class people segment has grown since the economic growth and it has benefited middle class and upper middle class people. Due to the increase in the number of working people and substantial raise in income, spending power has increased over the years, and particularly the young Indians in the age of 15 – 25 like to shop more. The Government of India has laid down strict rules to protect the environment and avoiding child labor but there is no legality followed by companies in providing an ethical environment in means of working time and salary. The increase in food, energy and real estate costs makes people’s lives more difficult at this time. Are we going to follow the western countries and repeat the same mistake leading to a standstill? As resources are getting to near exhaustion, now is the time to think and ask ourselves question of what we are doing and justify ensuring that we buy only for our needs. This study focuses on the consumer behavior of young Indians in the age of 15 – 25 to understand and know their perception towards spending and to show a new path for the society and the industry for a sustainable environment.

    Exploring static electricity as design material for woven and hand-tufted textiles2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    “Electrostatic textile surfaces” is a design example of surfaces which have the ability to interact to human action by movement. The design exploration was directed by the intention of achieving movement through static electricity. During this project textile techniques such as weaving and hand-tufting have been explored in combination with unconventional materials and functions and used as methods to design the surfaces. The findings from the design process regard the categorization of the yarns through the material exploration, the development of a design method through the experimentation of the technique and the surface appearance through the materialization of the method. The two final surfaces are exhibited horizontally and vertically in relation to the ground. The scale of the final structures is related to the body scale. One can electrify the surfaces by walking around or through them letting an open dialog to take place depended on personal interpretations.

    Sustainable development in codes of conduct for suppliers2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept sustainable development is defined as meeting the needs of the existing global population without compromising the opportunities for future generations to also meet their needs. Therefore, in order to work towards sustainable development, active sustainable choices need to be made in a company’s business activities. This thesis has a qualitative approach that aims to study five different Swedish textile companies and how they work towards sustainable development in their code of conduct for suppliers. Theories are collected from literature, articles and web sources, which include sustainable development, social, environmental and economic sustainability and codes of conduct. The main target is to identify different sustainable approaches towards sustainable development in the code of conduct for suppliers focusing on the social, environmental and economic sustainability. The empirical data is collected from five personal interviews with representatives in charge of sustainable activities from the selected companies. The result of the study confirms that all companies to different extents are working towards sustainable development in their code of conduct for suppliers. Sustainable approaches in these codes are agreements with suppliers including following the country’s laws and regulations of the suppliers. The companies also collaborate with third-party industrial research institutes to reduce water and chemical supply in the production. Moreover, the study shows that the concept sustainable development seems to be less embedded in the code of conduct for suppliers. Companies rather work with sustainable activities in forms of running projects and establishing agreements beyond having a code of conduct.

    Co–designing with plants.: Degrading as an overlooked potential for interior aesthetics based on textile structures.2017Ingår i: The Design Journal.: An International Journal for All Aspects of Design / [ed] Loredana Di Lucchio, Lorenzo Imbesi, Paul Atkinson, 5 Howick Place, London, SW1P 1WG: Taylor & Francis Group, 2017, Vol. 20, s. 4742-4744Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This research explores the dynamic qualities of plant degradation in textile structures for interior and aims to develop alternative aesthetics, interactions, life–cycles and applications for living with plants by referring to outdoor expressions and experiences. A series of material explorations illustrates the potential of corn seeds in textile indoor applications, focusing on aesthetics and material properties of degradation to create an interplay of texture, structure, form and color. The hybrid textiles refer to Blaisse view on curtains as fluid atmospheres and second skin, challenging the static nature of architecture and reinforcing the dialogue between landscape and interior. Bringing aesthetics of decay into interior spaces not only challenges the nature of materials, it also invites to rethink the aesthetic and cultural bias towards natural processes in interior scenarios.

    Growing textile hybrid structures: Using Plants for Dynamic Textile Transformation, an Approach Towards Biophilic Urbanism2017Ingår i: / [ed] Alberto T. Estévez, 2017, Vol. 3, s. 264-275Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper attempts to illustrate a „Material System“ that can exemplify a hybrid material behavior through a designed assembly of two categories of materials (biological and textile). The transformable system is achieved by natural dynamic transformations, using the potential of seeds for their passive and active, adaptive and responsive characteristics. The paper will showcase a series of experiments illustrating alternative forms of plant organization, human management and dynamic transformation in textile interior scenarios. The use of jacquard double weave structures on industrial machines allows a variety of patterns and constructions. Pocket weave is used in order to create enclosures capable of accommodating external elements such as seeds seamlessly. Activated by surrounding factors and forms of human management, the final prototypes, presented within an interior scenario, attempt to utilize the various behavioral properties, creating a non–tech responsive structure. Consequently, the research opens up the design space for climate responsive architectural structures where the responsive capacity is embedded in the structure of the material system itself. The paper aims to contribute to the future development of biophilic design and biodesign in the context of textile and interior design.

    On Textile Farming: Seeds as Material for Textile Design2018Licentiatavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Presently, designing with living systems such as insects, fungi and bacteria has become an area of extended interest, proposing collaborative processes of designing and manufacturing - as a solution for symbiotic ways of living. On the scale of the interior, modern systems for interior gardening, combining both functional, e.g., food supply, purifying the air, and aesthetic values, experience exceptional popularity, ensuring a complementary perspective on horticultural landscapes indoors. As a result, the spaces where people live and crops grow increasingly intersect and therefore open

    up for developments that bridge both areas and where aesthetic perspectives become equally important. However, modern indoor gardening systems are shaped by commercial horticultural practices, bringing reservoirs such as buckets, tubs or tanks, mostly built of plastic, into the homes. Textile Farming aims to explore alternative forms of plant organisation by blending seeds and textile structures into a hybrid material for textile interior scenarios. Consequently the materials’ performative capacity becomes part of the textile design process. A foundational part are forms of human management, e.g. activation of the seeds, maintenance of the plants, interaction with the hybrid textile structures within and beyond interiors, that leads to experiences and expressions. By practice based design research and through a series of design examples that explore the transformative potential of seeds in textile structures, alternative forms of plant organisation and methods for the textile design process lead to scenarios that propose alternatives to how we live with and organise plants today.

    Transforming textile expressions by using plants to integrate growth, wilderness and decay into textile structures for interior2017Ingår i: Alive. Active.

    Abstract [en]

     The emergence of biodesign, as a new field in design, opens up the design process for new methods, techniques and materials, consequently these new possibilities offer special potential for the textile design practice i.e. integrating living systems into textile structures. The purpose of this work is to develop knowledge on dynamic and active expressions through using bio–based materials in textile design processes. Major placeholders are exploring new forms of plant organization, and challenging existing concepts of living with plants, focusing on surface aesthetics. By practice–based design research, the experimental design explorations will illustrate the expressiveness of growth, wilderness and decay, using moisture, light and heat as design materials. This pictorial shows 10 sets of experiments that explore dynamic transformations of bio–based materials such as seeds and plants in interaction with textile materials and techniques like weaving, knitting and crochet. Consequently, the experiments illustrate potentialities in a design space where plants are placed as living materials for new processes and dynamic expressions. Subsequently, these materials open up the discussion on alternative aesthetics when designing interior textiles and designing spatial scenarios with them. The integration of living systems and dynamic expressions, especially towards growth, wilderness and decay, rises new issues i.e. their integration, maintenance, application and interaction.

    En välgörenhetsorganisations ansikte utåt2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Många välgörenhetsorganisationer har idag second hand-butiker knutna till sin verksamhet som ett sätt att omvandla gåvor till likvida medel som doneras till välgörande ändamål. Detta innebär att organisationerna måste arbeta aktivt med sin varumärkesidentitet för att kunna särskilja sig från andra aktörer på marknaden. Författarna till denna uppsats har försökt klargöra varumärkesidentiteten hos Röda Korsets mötesplats Kupan som bedriver försäljning av second hand. Inom teorier och tidigare forskning betonar man vikten av att varumärkesinnehavare måste veta vad som kännetecknar deras varumärke och vad det skall förmedla, annars finns risken att konsumenterna får svårt att bilda en tydlig uppfattning utav varumärket. Det önskade scenariot är att varumärkesinnehavaren och konsumentmarknaden skall uppfatta varumärket likadant. Röda Korset är en mångsidig organisation med många olika verksamheter knutna till sig, varav second hand-verksamheten utgör en av dessa. Mötesplats Kupan har många olika syften, dels skall rörelsen kunna gestalta det konkreta över vad Röda Korset innebär och vara en kommunikationskanal och upplysa om organisationens internationella uppdrag att ingen lämnas ensam vid en katastrof. Mötesplats Kupan har också en funktion av att vara en fysisk mötesplats och bedriva second hand-verksamhet som ett verktyg för organisationens insamling. Idag spretar verksamheten åt alla olika håll inom Sverige och kretsarna sköter sina mötesplatser på olika sätt då det inte finns några konkreta eller tydliga direktiv från Röda Korset centralt om hur verksamheten skall skötas. Detta innebär att även om rörelsen har en stark identitet lokalt sett skiljer sig dem sinsemellan och kan riskera att avvika från det som Röda Korset önskar förmedla. Myrorna däremot är en butikskedja av second hand med ett helhetskoncept som är märkbart i alla butiker med bland annat ett identiskt skyltmaterial. Myrorna skänker sitt överskott till Frälsningsarmén som är en organisation jämte Myrorna och de har utöver detta inget konkret samarbete. Detta underlättar för Myrorna att inta en tydlig position i kundernas medvetande som varumärke, men de riskerar att inte förstå huruvida Myrorna arbetar för välgörenhet.

    Hur ska klädexponeringen se ut i den perfekta webbshoppen?2011Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    I dagens samhälle handlar det om att vara så effektiv som möjligt för att vinna tid. Som Benjamin Franklin en gång sa att ”Tid är pengar”, är något som vi människor allt mer tagit fasta på då vi ställer höga krav på utvecklingen och dess teniska förmågor. Idag har de flesta människor tillgång till en dator med internetuppkoppling som vi dagligen utför sysslor vid. Det kan vara allt ifrån jobbrelaterade aktiviteter, hålla kontakten med nära och kära, söka information om vad som händer i världen och i vår omgivning, till mer nöjesinriktade delar såsom online spel och shopping. Just shopping via internet är något som vuxit väldigt mycket under det senaste årtiondet, de flesta människor idag har förmodligen någon gång köpt något via nätet eller haft tanke på att göra det. Syftet med denna uppsats är att uppmärksamma de säljfrämjande exponeringsverktyg som kunden anser bör finnas med i produktinformationen på webbutikerna för att de ska leda till ett köp hos dem. Detta för att öka kundnöjdheten online. Visionen är att öka förståelsen kring den produktinformation som konsumenten behöver för att kunna känna sig trygg i att handla kläder på internet. Vår kvantitativa undersökning ämnades för målgruppen män och kvinnor i åldrarna 18-35 år men den gemensamma nämnaren av intresset att handla kläder på internet. Undersökningen behandlade frågor som rör exponeringsverktygen på webben. Vi frågade hur respondenterna upplever de säljverktyg som finns idag, de utvecklingsmöjligheter vi funnit som finns inom klädexponeringen samt om de svarande själva hade idéer eller förslag på vad de skulle vilja se i produktinformationen i den perfekta webbutiken. De slutsatser som kunde dras utav vår studie var att en utveckling av de säljfrämjande exponeringsverktygen är önskad av våra respondenter då intresset för att handla kläder via internet är stort. För att konsumenten ska kunna känna sig säker när denne handlar kläder på internet bör webbutikerna arbeta med att skapa den befintliga produktinformationen så lik en fysisk klädexponering som möjligt. Detta kan uppnås genom utvecklingsmöjligheter såsom modeller med olika kroppsformer, virtuell 3D docka enligt egen längd, vikt och mått, virtuell butik samt omfattande produktinformation och högupplösta bilder. Today´s society is all about being as efficient as possible to win time. Benjamin Franklin once said “Time is money”. This is something we human beings have taken seriously as we raise our demand for development and its technological abilities. Today most people have access to a computer with wireless Internet connection from where they perform different chores. It could be anything from work related activities, staying in contact with loved ones, searching information about what’s going on in the world and in our surroundings, to more entertainment-oriented activities such as online games and shopping. Shopping online is something that has grown fast in the fashion industry in the last decade, and most people today have probably bought something or at least have thought of doing so. The purpose of this essay is to highlight the sales promoting exposure tools which the consumer find necessary in the product information found in web shops to lead them to purchase. This is to increase customer satisfaction online. Our aim is to increase the understanding of what the customer needs in form of product information to feel safe when buying clothes on the Internet. Our quantitative study is based on men and women aged 18-53 with a common interest in buying clothes on the Internet. The research deals with questions regarding exposure tools on the web. We asked the respondents how they perceived existing sales tools, the potentials for development in clothing exposure that we found and also if the respondents themselves had any ideas of what they would like to see included in the product information in the perfect web store. The conclusion we could draw from our study was that sales promoting exposure tools are needed by our respondents since the interest in buying clothes online is great. In order to make the customer feel sure when buying clothes on the Internet the web shops ought to work towards making the product information as similar to a physical exposure of the clothes as possible. This can be achieved through new developments such as models of various body types, virtual 3D dolls according to the consumers own measurements and weight, virtual stores and through comprehensive product information and high definition images.

    It all started with a thought of one single colour; the colour red. The idea of building a collection from one colour was frighten- ing and intriguing at the same time. It was frightening because I didn’t know if it was enough to build a whole collection on only one colour, but the possibility to find other expressions arouse my curiosity. But why red? I find that this colour, of all colours, has the deepest range of shades. With red ink and my fingers as tools I created an ab- stract sketch to refer to. When the differ- ent shades come together it creates a great vivid expression of the whole picture. I am not interested in one shade alone, it is the interaction between two or more which are interesting.

    Price Strategy for Product Launch: from the Customer Value Perspective2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Fristads has noticed needs and necessity of high visibility work wear in the market, particular for the high risk working industries. In addition to it, new international standards for work wear will be introduced in year 2013 which may put higher requirements on visibility of the work wear. Fristads aims to be the first company to develop the new product and pricing is one of the major problems they encounter. After studying different relevant literatures, we have decided to approach the pricing problem using customer value based pricing as the starting-point. Purpose: To identify and analyse the pricing with focus on customer values and product launch. Methodology: My research methodology has a qualitative approach with a certain quantitative feature, and it follows the inductive reasoning. Uncontrolled studies of preferences and intentions have been used when three dealers and one end-customer were interviewed. Secondary sources have been reviewed and the critical pricing issues are identified. The primary data obtained from the interviews is made as foundation for the creation of the price strategy. Result: The interviews have shown that the customers like Fristads’ product idea and the design of the work wear with enhanced visibility. A probably accepted price on the new work wear has been defined according to the customer survey. Pricing strategies for the product launch focusing on the customer value have been recommended. The final decision on the price strategy shall however be made in concurrence with the other strategies at Fristads in order to cover all the aspects.

    Finns det efterfrågan av re-designade yogakläderoch accessoarer på den svenska marknaden?2014Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka om det finns behov av re-designade kläder och accessoarer för yogautövare i Göteborg. Den uppsamlade informationen användes för att bedöma möjligheten till att starta ett företag vars verksamhet bygger på försäljning av yogakläder- och accessoarer genom re-design av secondhandvaror. I den teoretiska referensramen beskrivs vad marknadsföringsmix innebär, vilken inkluderar konkurrensmedel som är viktiga när man vill starta ett nytt företag, nämligen de fyra p:na. Vi har fått fram resultatet av vår marknadsundersökning genom intervjuer med sex olika yogautövare. Genom att intervjua dessa personer har vi undersökt deras köpvanor, köpbeteende, kunskaper samt inställning till re-design och secondhand samt inställning till olika prisklasser. Genom vår studie har vi kommit fram till att det finns en för liten marknad i Göteborg för försäljning av re-designade yogakläder och accessoarer. De flesta föredrar vanliga sportkläder framför yogakläder och vad gäller accessoarer så anser de flesta att de inte slits så mycket och därför köps väldigt sällan. Däremot har vi kommit fram till att man kan fundera på att i sitt företag satsa på unika re-designade yogaaccessoarer av hög kvalitet som kan fungera som en imageskapare för företaget samtidigt som man breddar ut sitt sortiment med andra relaterade varor vilka troligen köps oftare och kan generera vinst, vilket dock måste undersökas närmare.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the fundamental meanings of deconstruction in fashion design and has the aim to investigate deconstruction in feminine ideal. It also stresses other thoughts of deconstruction in terms of philosophy through Jacques Derrida, architecture and philosopher Peter Eisenman and how deconstruction can be applied to find parallels between its setting and the setting it is compared to. Since the 1960s, deconstruction is a term that has been interpreted within many fields and traversed across different media. Influential Japanese designers have used the term in their works, juxtapositioning them to traditional Western ideas to create clear contrasts between stereotypical and categorised perception and unconventional interpretations. During the 1980s, designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto explored the term to subsequently create a great distress in the fashion field. Their designs were examples of archetypes evoked from the past and presented as newborn strangers or dismantled ghosts. These designers investigated the mechanical functions of each archetype as they sought to find the meaning of each garment to later reinterpret its traditional essence. Also, they questioned the relationship between body and garment, raising thoughts of whether or not the bearer of the garment was personified to the garments traditional significance. The deconstructed element chosen for investigation in this project consists of a personification of the silhouette of the 1870s dress. This personification is discussed in terms of social and moral standards and constrictions as well as the political function of the dress. The fact that you could deconstruct a 1870s dress is clearly a way to take a historical archetype from its traditional meaning and place it into a new context. Similar to Jacques Derrida, the works of deconstruction in fashion design discuss our assumptions of archetypes and whether or not these archetypes can ever lack of historical or individual meaning. The constant dialogue with the past is a catalyst to reinterpret standardisations in fashion design through questioning the conformity of archetypes.

    Visual dominance. Our human perception, that with great authority, powerfully influences and controls all of our senses. In turn, our minds try to acquire and maintain meaningful perceptions in what we are experiencing, may that be in a chaotic world, a cacophony in colour or vibrations in patterns. This project explores disturbances in pattern and colour and how these elements can deceive the eye. Playing with elements such as opacity, layers and transparency the nine outfits presented in this project attempt to explore the principles of Gestalt psychology to create disorder and confusion. Significantly, the project discusses our perception of pattern and colour and how with small measures these components can outsmart our senses, highlighting the importance of psychological methods and techniques in design rather than scientific or mathematical.

    This is a textile design project aim to make a communication stage with smart colors (Thermo-­‐ chromic leuco-­‐dyes and photo-­‐luminescent colors). All through a research question has been designed. The objects, colors, and materials have been chosen based on the inspirations from the stimuli. Afterward experimental method has been employed to reflect the theory of the project, which was the notion of death and life. Subsequently the design process has been started by conception of combining textile and information technology in order to make a design prototype so people can interact with the prototype and reactions could be observed and sensed by human. This communication stage has its own specifications and characteristics that people can have their own understanding of it while using it.

    On textile printing with thermochromic inks2017Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis describes an exploration of the principles of applying leuco dye-based inks to textile design practice. The main motivation has been to explore the design properties and potentials of leuco dye-based thermochromic inks when printed on textiles in order to obtain an understanding and facilitate the design of dynamic surface patterns. The significance of this is related to the development of a methodology to assist designers in seeing possibilities, making informed decisions, and predicting colour transitions at different temperatures when designing a dynamic surface pattern.

    The research was conducted by undertaking a series of design experiments using leuco dye-based thermochromic inks, which resulted in various working methods and two pedagogical tools. This process offered the insight and depth of understanding required to design dynamic surface patterns, in that it highlighted the different colour-changing properties of leuco dye-based thermochromic inks, which have the potential to create a more complex and dynamic range of patterns on textiles than those that exist today. There is much to explore beyond the current design possibilities offered by thermochromic inks, and it is hoped that designers and researchers can apply the knowledge that has been obtained during the work of this thesis to their practical explorations so as to move towards new ways of thinking and designing, and further innovation in textile design.

    Knowledge,need and demand of eco-labelled upholstery fabrics at Svensson Markspelle, Ludvig Svensson2010Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to greater awareness of the need to conserve the world's resources - one direction is to promote products with less environmental impact during manufacturing processes. There are different perspectives to understand what is driving this development towards environmental production. On one hand, producers manage their production with less environmental impact either of an integrated environmental management of the company or because of regulatory requirements in steering manufacturing, especially under circumstances in Sweden. The development may also be because of responding to market demand for eco-labelled prod-ucts. My case studies have two approaches of qualitative research in order to answer the research questions: The first angle, makes a description of how a company has adapted to environmental production conditions, and examine the product development process and the choice of implementing product groups in its range. The second angle is from a customer perspective, exploring choices of specific products. The study begins with the producer Lud-vig Svensson AB and their brand Svensson Markspelle of their eco-labelled furniture fabrics and then followed by a comparison of the different kind of customers within the brand. The findings of the thesis revealed that, Ludvig Svensson has adjusted to a sustainable production since before the implementation of an eco-label. It also shows that there is a need for greater information about the company’s environmental work out to customers as eco-labels is limited in its message as a communication tool, regardless whether the eco-label is part of the ongoing environmental work or not. More customer-oriented information could make a difference as an eco-label is a simple message for complex conditions. There is also an op-portunity to increase knowledge. However, it is important to emphasize that although the organization Ecolabelling Sweden has a responsibility to raise awareness about eco-labels they certify for. Findings of the customer study showed that the choices that govern the public environment are complex. At many times other requirements such as washability, durability and flame resistance are put higher than the choice of an upholstery fabric. To be envi-ronmental friendly in product selection is not just about choosing a product with minor envi-ronmental impact, but high quality is such as great environmental choice. The study also showed that there are general aspects that are problematic to make environmentally con-scious choices and the obstacles of lack of knowledge in some areas come from several directions with regard to conditions in the public procurement.

    Psychosocial Factors Influencing Young Consumers' Clothing Disposal Behaviour in Greece2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The following Master thesis deals with the problem of clothing disposal in Greece examining primarily the psychosocial factors that influence this behaviour. More specifically, the author sets a theoretical framework using the Triandis’ (1977) model of Interpersonal Behaviour and examines how the factors included in the model influence clothing disposition among young individuals in Greece as well as to what extend they do it. Furthermore, the author explores the clothing disposition behaviour of the above mentioned sample regarding an old t-shirt. The thesis consists of six chapters. In the first chapter, the author examines the problem of clothing disposal in terms of how it is formulated and what are the environmental effects deriving from it. Due to the fact that there is no information about clothing disposal in Greece, the problem is examined in relation to countries like the USA and the UK and then the findings are connected to Greece so the reader can understand the importance of the problem in the country. The second chapter sets the theoretical framework of the problem by examining the existing theories and studies in the fields of disposition and clothing disposition. Moreover, in this chapter there is a thorough analysis of Triandis’ (1977) Theory of Interpersonal Behaviour to guide the reader through the rest of the paper. In the third chapter, the research methodology is analysed in respect to the general design, the sampling technique used and the questionnaire development and distribution. After setting all the necessary elements, in chapter four the author analyses the results of the research with a statistical method based on SPSS. Findings of the three research questions are demonstrated in this chapter with a small discussion regarding them. Chapter five consists of the discussion around the findings of the research. Under this section the author discusses how and why the psychosocial factors, as presented in Triandis’ (1977) Theory of Interpersonal Behaviour, influence clothing disposal behaviour among young individuals in Greece as well as the actual disposal behaviour. Finally, in chapter six of this thesis a conclusion of the findings takes place with parallel suggestions about further research in this field and some proposals in relation to the problem.

    Dead Skin, Living Machine: textile under surgery2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Dead Skin, Living Machine is a process of making / building textile dead skin as inspirational source with respect to textile interaction. Knits are elaborated within perception, identity and interaction as witnesses of object's life in our environment, while the act of knitting is wildly ruled by its own responsive potential. Knitting and videos dialog work tend to explore the emergence of textile material.

    Understanding China's love for luxury.An analysis of luxury consumption in China2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The main assumption of this thesis is existence of traditional and modern values in the Chinese society. The author of this paper believes that this characteristic differentiates that market from other luxury markets and drives the way luxury is consumed. The study tries also proving that the perception of luxury and conspicuous consumption can be changed in time in the process of bigger internationalization of the country. The research focus is put primarily on psychology of luxury consumer in China and what stands behind their motivation of purchasing high-end products.

    Electroluminescent Textiles2019Ingår i: Material District, 2019Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this research, the aim was to explore the materiality of light through a textile design perspective. Print designs were developed with textile printing methodology, using multiple screens and blending ink colours through mixing and overprinting. This is in contrast to existing electroluminescent panels, which typically use single-colour prints with clear graphic shapes.

    These electroluminescent prints consist of a transparent electrode, printed first in pattern with a phosphor paste, then a ceramic dielectric layer, and finally a second electrode. When alternating current is applied through the electrodes, the phosphor illuminates.

    Sample one emphasises the clarity of a single screen phosphor print, but is printed using a blend of two colours of phosphor ink, usually used unmixed. The scratchy detail of the knit pattern adds texture and depth.

    Sample two takes advantage of the blue phosphor’s translucency, creating a three-colour print using only two screens through overlapping and blending. The design is based on a twill weave, and, rather than the clean edges of typical electroluminescent printing, embraces the speckled background as a pattern element. The alignment of the two layers of the printed pattern lends a visual depth to the result, in contrast to the flatness of sample one.

    The pattern in sample three is created by rasterising and combining images of two knitted textiles. The use of two complementary colours in the print amplifies the raster, creating a visual vibration that keeps the eye moving over the pattern surface.
