Larsbergsserien: Om en designprocess av utomhusmöbler i ofentlig miljö från skiss till verklighet
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10,5 credits / 16 HE creditsStudent thesis
Based on a project from the third course in furniture design at Carl almsten Furniture Studies I have got the opportunity to design outdoor furniture with integrated lightning for John Mattson Fastighets AB, property owners in Larsberg, Lidingö. My concept is to create a space for socializing and security. I have worked through a design process based on a specific specification and concept formulation. The furniture will be produced by the lighting company ateljé Lyktan. In this thesis I will describe the process of this product development.
Parallel to the design process I have done an investigation of the market for my furnitures and outdoor furniture generally. My question is about how the process of the outdoor furniture looks from sketch to reality. Who decides about the furniture in the public space in the city of Stockholm? The result bifurcates into two different parts. The first touches the order John Mattson Fastighets AB did and will be presented in the form of pictures and drawings. The second result concerns my investigation. It is mainly landscape architects that distribute and decide about outdoor furniture in an outdoor environment, but depending on customer requirements vary on the furniture. Architect offices usually wins contracts through tenders or are hired by a private customer.
