A lamp that easily snaps into place wherever you need it
May, 2015 (Prototype) - This lamp is part of my bachelor project made during my studies at Designschool Kolding.
With SNAP LAMP I aimed to make it easy to get light where you need it. The lamp offers a flexible lighting solution with its clamp base, which lets you attach it to any surface ranging from 8-40mm thickness. The clamp is seamlessly integrated into the design for ease.
The shade rotates in two directions so it can be focused where you need light the most. The lamp is outfitted with LED technology and a dimmer function.
A floor lamp that gives general lighting in a flexible way
May, 2015 (Prototype) - This lamp is part of my bachelor project made in collaboration with the danish lifestyle design company Muuto.
LEAN LIGHT is a movable floor lamp with integrated LED. The need for lighting to be flexible and easy changeable is the basic idea for the development of this lamp. It can be used as general lighting in a room either as direct light or indirect when positioned to throw the light in the direction of a wall, a ceiling or the floor.
A collection of 5 lamps developed in a team with Nanna Neergaard and collaboration partner Le Klint.
Master project, June 2017 (prototypes)
“Le Klint wish to be seen as a 75-year young company”. Through a strategic design process we have analyzed and reinterpreted the design DNA and traditions of the company in a new and yet recognizable form.
The aim was to create an innovative collection of lamps targeting a younger user segment, both in appearance as well as in price.
The aesthetic consideration is based on the traditional pleated structures and the way they beautifully break up the light, whereas the lines concentrates the light and the straight sections diffuses the light. We wanted to bring these qualities into our collection in a new interpretation of pleats.
Inspired by the iconic arches of Grundtvig Memorial Church by P.V. Jensen Klint, Arc Collection got its iconic curved lines. The overall convex shape of the shade and the concave shapes of each "pleat" create a stability in the structure and is further an recognizable reference to the repetitive layers of the arches in the church.
Our full master project included a collection of 5 lamps as well as an implementation plan, that would:
1) Create a unique market position and increase the company’s visibility
2) Reach a younger customer segment in both aesthetics and in price without compromising with Le Klint’s traditions and core values
3) Be suitable for the core processes of the Le Klint production
4) Be relevant at an international level
An interior project made for fashion & lifestyle communication agency, NOISE PR. Furthermore it functions as an external showroom for Muuto showcasing broad variety of Muuto setups.
During my internship at Muuto I made this interior project in collaboration with Design assistant, Svenja Nesch.
The aim was to develop five separate Muuto concepts for NOISE PR placed around the 1000 squaremetre office. Each of them with various themes, usabilities and Muuto products in focus.
3D-interior project made for Passagen Aps
November, 2016 - made in collaboration with Nanna Neergaard.
The aim of the project was to create 3D-visualizations that could showcase the the rooms and structure of the newly renovated apartment as well as suggest a possible way of arranging furniture within this space.
For desk related work such as drawing and sketching
Angle Light is designed to give the perfect light for desk related work such as drawing, sketching and painting.
The lamp is switched on and crolled by finger touch.
The LED technology with a mix of warm and cold LED diodes allows adjustment of the color temperature of the light according to the secondary light in a room. This ensures thet colors seen in the light of the lamp are seen real.
Angle Light is characterized by its graphic form and the contrast between the general form an the subtracted space at the rear.
Angle Light has one light source, but the luminaire provides three different types of lightning:
Direct - A high efficient light without glare
Indirect - A reflected light from the angled aluminium surface, which reduces shadows from the hand when drawing
Diffuse - A soft light at the rear, which gives a comfortable secondary light in the room
Fire resistant tent for a sustainable festival
September, 2013 + June, 2014
This tent is a result of a former course I had concerning sustainable materials. The task was to explore and research in the field of sustainable materials and develop an idea for some kind of camp with this new knowledge.
I always wanted to make my own tent so I started exploring for the possibility of making a tent in a fire-resistant material for the purpose of making it suitable for festivals. I developed a shape for the tent, which could give new possibilities in building up a camp with tents that could be connected to each other. The hole idea was that the tents should be rental tent that could be booked and arranged in camps when booking the festival ticket. During the projekt I made scale models to communicate the idea.
After the course ended I was lucky to able to continue with my burning desire for building my own tent. I got a collaboration partner, ROCKWOOL, who already was dealing with some residental huts at Roskilde Festival made with insulating materials.
The main material I worked with for my tent was a fabric bade from the volcanic stone, basalt. At last years Roskilde festival i made the first prototype of the tent in 1:1 and I stayed there for 3 days during the festival.
Flashlight and batong for guards and policemen
This project was a collaboration with Würth with the aim of developing their new working flashlights. My flashlight is a flash bat, which designed for a guard or a policeman. In addition to serving purely functional as an effective light source it also gives the guard a sense of security because the flashlight can be used as a shield (and a if necessary a weapon) . The flashlight has two light sources; a strongly focused light in front and a broader light source along its shape for illuminating larger areas.
The flash bat can be hold in two different ergonomic grips from where the thumb or forefinger can operate the light sources.
For mobile workers in airport waiting areas
This project was made during a four week collaboration course between Design School Kolding, Tongji University and external partner, Avarte.
The main purpose was to develop a sustainable product in the context of a movable workspace. This project deals with the public waiting areas inside airports, larger trainstations e.i.
The concept “Wait & Work” is designed to give people traveling a posibility to work on a small desk during waiting hours in airports. The 3 core design principles in the design are flexibility, simplicity and ergonomics.
Flatpacked coffee table in plywood and copper
This project was a conceptual design proposal for the competition FSC Design Award 2012.
It is af coffee table inspired from inspired from traditional nesting tables. But for this table the one tabletop is twisted so that the table creates a cross.
The idea is to have two outlets surfaces so you can put your coffee on the lowest and books or electronics at the highest.
The table received the FSC design award’s consumer prize in 2012 and the prototype was exhibited at Danish Design Center in Copenhagen from January 2013 to march 2013.
90 degree is a self-assembly table, where the consumer can assembly the frame and then add on the table tops without tools. The round sticks and fittings are screwed together in threads. The table is therefore suitable for flat packing and can be packed closely together in a box size 65 x 25 x 5 cm.
A device for orthopedic surgery boot for operations of the femur
February, 2015 - Developed in a team with Nanna Neergaard in collaboration with Sygehus Lillebælt.
The project deals with optimizing a patients safety during operation of a femoral bone. The overall aim was to improve wellfare of patients and staff in the orthopedic surgery clinic.
During observation studies in the orthopedic surgery clinic at the hospital we identified a huge challenge in the operation room: an extension boot used for femur operations, that among surgeons were called ‘an object from hell’. The operation device had got that designation because all staff found it very difficult to use it correctly without the huge risk of causing the the elder patients harms like pressure sores.
Part of ECCO X winter collection
December 2014 - The project is made together with two fellow students from fashion design Marie Rousing and Louise Permin Tønder.
This project was made during a four week collaboration course between Design School Kolding, D’Wayne Edwards from Pensole Academy, Oregon and Ecco shoes, Denmark.
The intention for this project was to develop a collection of winter products, containing winter boots and a bag, that could make ECCO as brand more attractive to young women in Scandinavia.
With a a design brief based on a consumer profile represented by professional female freestyler skier, Kaya Turski, and the Winter X games as main inspiration, our main purpose was to design a collection of products that represented Kayas professional attitude and passion for skiing in off-hill products.
I designed the the innovative ‘AUTOLACE BOOT’.
A LEGO playground with a lot of possibilities
This project aims to give children the possibility of creating their own playground. The playground has a permanent main shape. Large scale LEGO bricks could easily be added in order to create a personalized environment in which the play could take place. With only a few bricks it is possible to combine and design a whole new playground; a sports car, an airplane, a spaceship, af castle or whatever - there is really no limit to the imagination of a child.
The main inspiration comes from building playgrounds, which unfortunately don't exist anymore, because of stricter safety rules. The building playground gave endless possibilities to build different environment. The LEGO Muoto intends to do the same - just more easily, safer and a lot quicker.
Bringing together different worlds by play with LEGO
From an overall goal about creating World Peace through play, I developed a concept for play that could embrace and unite the differences among kids from various contries around the world.
The interaction part is happening through play at a platform. There could be various tasks to do he; ex. build your own house. Each kid has then a framed area in where they can build this house. The areas are separated with semitransparent acrylic screens, which means that it is not possible to see what the others are building, but i is possible to see the outline area of what is adjacent to the screen. By the kids can 'connect' their own creation to the others, and later the platform screens will reveal what has been build as one piece.
