B U S S TO P

//With a future filled with plans of extensive infrastructure projects, the city of Gothenburg is seeing a rising need for Flexible bus stops, which can adapt to the needs of a City in change//

During my internship at Yovinn, I was part of a project developing three concepts for flexible bus stops. This was a group project where I and two other designers divided the three concepts between us, and I focused on the concept called Foldable. Sketches and CAD models were made individually, with shared support and feedback. Ideations and presentations were made in a group effort. Collaborative partners:

BUS

STOPS

With the help of a pilot study made by Yovinn’s sister company Invinn, we identified essential needs of travelers and bus drivers, as well as the requirements for the actual bus stop. From these needs and requirements we then derived concrete functions and attributes which would need to be incorporated in our concepts.

IDEAS

Through group brainstorming based on the research identifying needs and requirements, we came up with a bunch of ideas for features and functions. By combining these we lay ground to our three different concepts, which we then divided between us for further development. I continued developing the concept Foldable, a concept which would focus on a flat pack principle.

IDEATION MINIMALISTIC FLEXIBLE FOLDABLE

ROUNDED

With focus on flexibility, my goal was to develop a bus stop which would be easy to install and take up minimal space when in storage, making the handling both time and money saving. This led me to the idea of a foldable bus stop, designed in a way where every vital part of the installment would be connected in one foldable piece and easily moved from storage to location; a flat packed bus stop.

WAV E -

DISH DRYER

//Sweden has the highest number of single households in the world, yet the majority of household appliances are targeted towards other groups. In a society where single households and compact living are becoming increasingly present, the need for targeted products has become more relevant//

Based on thorough user research and function development, my Bachelor Thesis project Wave is an innovative dish dryer which focuses on flexibility. Featuring adaptable supports and quick drying fans, Wave accommodates the needs which traditional dish racks do not. Collaborative partner:

IDEATION FLEXIBLE

With focus on the identified needs of my target group, my aim was to design a product which could accomodate a wide range of kitchenware and adapt to different situations while still being as compact as possible.

CLEAN PLAYFUL

COMPACT

Inspired by a playful yet simplistic form language, it focuses on conveying a clean and functional impression. Using a minimal amount of technical functions, it meets the needs without adding more technical noise. WAVE

Using fans to dry decreased the time in half compared to letting them self dry

There was only a marginal difference between drying with hot air compared to cold

The ideal placement of the fans where in the center, with wide openings rather than small ones

WORKSHOP With a generous financial contribution from Electrolux, I was able to 3D print three parts of the prototype through the company Acron. The rest of the prototype was made by hand in the workshop, using polyurethane foam, MDF boards and acrylic glass, amongst other materials. The prototype also featured fully functional fans, placed at the top. WAVE

UV SENSOR+APP

//As climate change arises as an increasingly relevant problem, this UV sensor bracelet gives the user a way to overview and prevent overexposing their young ones to harmful radiation//

Uvio is a project focusing on Interaction in spatial contexts. Having this as my starting point, I chose to focus on young children’s interaction with their outside environment and the objects they wear, while aiming to use this context to create a product which could benefit both children and their parents in enabling a safe experience outside in the sun.

Ozone layer depletion decreases our atmosphere’s natural protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation, which leads to multiple health risks.

HOME OBSERVATIONS

IDEATION INTUITIVE EDUCATIONAL PLAYFUL

SAFE

Revolving around children and their safety, the development of this design was a challenge in finding a playful and intuitive expression which took into account the needs of both children and parents. With the use of shapes, images, light cues and tactile elements, the product was designed to be both functional and educational, by involving the child rather than designing it only for the parents. Targeted towards the parents is instead an app connected to the UV bracelet. UVIO

TREKKLE -

TRICYCLE

//During our childhoods, many of the most joyful and educational experiences for us happen when we work together with others. When we play with friends and family, we learn both about ourselves and our place in the world//

Trekkle is a tricycle designed for preschool children. With it’s array of shapes and surfaces, it encourages the user to explore and be creative during use. This tricycle is perfect when you want to play together with someone, as its double set of pedals offers the joy of cooperation.

PLAYFUL

The ideation process was focused on developing a tricycle which would encourage cooperative play by offering a lot of different surfaces and ways of being used. As preschool children are inclined towards finding their own ways of using things, I wanted to embrace this behaviour and give them as many opportunities of doing this as possible. TREKKLE

TEST

PROTOTYPE

To test out proportions and volume, I used standard measurements to make a fullscale 4-year old in cardboard with movable joints. Using this I then made a cardboard model of the tricycle and adjusted the proportions according to the childs’ movements. This gave me the chance to study the theoretical movements of a child and get a sense of how I could best adapt my design to fit them and their needs. TREKKLE
