Quadro : The sidetable that became podium for identity (English)
Abstract [en]

In my senior project I work with the unseen furniture: the side table. The name, Quadro, is a combination of the italian word quattro that means four and the latin word ”quadratum” or ”quadratus.”  After conducting an analysis of different side tables, I concluded that the side table's function is primarily to elevate other artifacts. I draw connections to the creation of identity through consumption and have created a sidetble through combining furniture design and conceptual design. The project was finalized with a survey to see if identity is visible through the selection of artifacts.

Abstract [sv]

I mitt projekt arbetar jag med den osedda möbeln: sidobordet. Namnet Quadro är en blandning mellan italienskans quattro som betyder fyra och latinets ”quadratum” eller ”quadratus”. Efter analys av olika sidobord kom jag fram till att sidobordets primärfunktion är att höja upp andra artefakter. Jag drar kopplingar till identitetsskapande genom konsumtion och har skapat ett sidobord genom att kombinera möbeldesign med konceptuell design. Projektet slutförs med en undersökning för att se om identitetsskapandet går att observera genom valet av artefakter.
