A dismantleable construction for outdoor environments : with a starting point in Hans Johansson’s design (English)
Abstract [sv]

Jag fångades av enkelheten i inredningsarkitekten Hans Johanssons konstruktioner, flexibiliteten och den eleganta lättheten i hans möbler, de nätta dimensionerna och sättet han använder materialet trä. I mitt examensarbete undersöker jag möjligheten att vidareutveckla hans konstruktioner för att passa ett modernt liv på gränsen mellan ute och inne.Hans Johansson, som i år fyller nittio, började arbeta med sin idé om möbler konstruerade av ramar som ihopfogas utan skruv eller beslag för mer än ett halvt sekel sedan. Kanske är det först nu, i en ny sorts trångboddhet, som tiden är mogen för hans demonterbara möbler. Sparsamheten i material, flexibilitet, inhemska träslag och platta paket känns tidslöst och modernt. Jag vill lära mig att tänka om mitt hantverk i nya banor och Hans Johanssons arbete innehåller en del av det jag tror mig sakna. Mina studier av Johanssons möbler och desskonstruktioner resulterade i en demonterbar trädgårdsmöbel för fyra personer, ett bord och två bänkar som ryms i en låda bara 86 mm tjock.

Abstract [en]

I was captured by the simplicity of the interior designer Hans Johansson’s designs, theflexibility and the elegant lightness of his constructions, the petite dimensions and the way he uses wood as a material. In my thesis I investigate the possibility of developing his constructions to suit modern life on the border between outside and inside. Hans Johansson, who this year turns ninety, began working on his idea of furniture constructed by frames joined together without screws or fittings more than half a century ago. Perhaps it is only now, in a new kind of overcrowding that the time is ripe for his dismantled furniture. Frugality of materials, flexibility, native woods and flat pack feels timeless and modern. I want to learn to think about my craft in new ways and Hans Johansson’s work contains some of the aspects I wish to explore. My studies of Johansson’s furniture and its construction resulted in demountable garden furniture for four people, one table and two benches that can fit in a box only 86 mm thick.
