Abstract [en]

Skövde Kulturhus is a cultural centre in Skövde that have been remodelled to incorporate new areas

and to improve the old ones. The centre has different locals where different activities can be

performed such as watching movies and theatre plays, dance, etc. In the art gallery, one of the new

areas is the workshop, and for this, new furniture is needed. During the project, a set of a table and

chairs have been developed for the workshop, following some specifications, set by the personnel of

the Cultural Centre and by the conclusion from the different investigations.

This report covers the whole process from the different researches to the evaluation and the

development of the final concepts; it follows a modification of the Cyclic Strategy Method process,

which includes the research and different design tools to create the concepts, as morphological chart,

braindrawing and a study of the form. User studies have been made to get a good understanding of the

way a person uses this furniture using surveys; ergonomics research has been made to design

furniture for all kind of people; and market research have been made to discovered what kind of

furniture is usually used. All these researches have been investigated to create the optimal table and

chair for the activities done at the Centre. The final solutions, which have been evaluated against

other concepts, are a wooden table, whose design and modular form permits to join other tables to

work in teams; and a wooden chair, which have been designed for different people size. Both would

fulfil the requirements and fit in the new cultural centre.
