”Idesign got 5 points out of a possible 5 for the design. Would there have been room for more, they would have gotten it.” Leif Thies, Design Manager SL.
In the pitch for 96 new cars for the Stockholm metro for launch in 2017, we helped Siemens bring forward an offer out of the ordinary.
While I was working at Idesign, we created a concept where colours, materials and finish were made essential to the design. The fabric of the seats was inspired by the architecture in Stockholm and the handrails were covered by brass to achieve a beautiful, contrasting effect. The concept was also designed for driverless use as an exciting area for travellers to visit. My main responsibilities in this project was the exterior design and the driver's cabin with its driverless option.
An innovative new product line helped Wilfa become a market leader in home appliances. As an intern at Designit I was involved in a early stage of ideation and research in the development of the Wilfa Svart Precision.
The Nordic region has amongst the highest per capita levels of coffee consumption, most of the coffee made in Norway is made at home on a filter brewer. A lot of research and testings had to be done on prototype models to reach the high level of a user-friendly coffee maker.

Velux Window Controller
During my time as an intern at Designit. We created the VELUX Control Pad which makes it possible to operate blinds and skylights from anywhere in the house. Programs can be created to schedule blinds and skylights to be repeated daily, weekly, or by the month of the year. Allowing variability and energy lighting efficiency.
Bread and Butter
A solution to prepare crisp-bread for people with just one functioning hand. The concept is mainly to be used in hospital restaurants. Bread is locked by simply adjusting and turning an eccentric knob. In-house project while working at Myra
Discovery and adventure has always been part of humanity. Scuba diving is a way to experience the world in which we live. Paraplegic divers have to use their arms to swim and manoeuvre under water. Buoyancy in diving is important, despite it being one of the most difficult skills to master in the sport. For disabled divers with non-functioning legs it’s almost impossible to keep balance and position under water whit out special adjustments in equipment. Disabled people usually chained to the wheelchair can now feel the sense of weightlessness and complete freedom of movement.
Focus for this project is recreational diving in warmer countries, not only giving the opportunity to be inspired by the rich marine life with underwater creatures and coral reefs, also the social side with all the diving associates and communities. Design for all is the design philosophy in this project, targeting as wide user group as possible including people with paraplegia.
This concept of a buoyancy compensator/ diving vest, widens the inflatable areas in upper, lower and sideways making it possible to control your position in real-time while diving. Buoyancy and body trim can be adjusted via the chest mounted control to assist the user into a horizontal, vertical, or angular position, increasing the freedom of movement & enhancing the overall experience.
