R EST Wood and modell structure in the nature of Småland The assignment of the Wood Project was to get to know the material wood as a constructive tool and tectonic material. The little wooden house REST is a resting place for people traveling by foot or by canoe through the woods of Småland in Sweden. Here you can have a night rest during winter or summertime with the beautiful view over the water. REST is built with solid pine timber, combined together with dovetail joints. The sedum roof is not only aesthetically pleasing but also a good environmental choice as it takes up the acid rain and absorb air

I L L US I O N Architectural Design Process and Prototypes The aim with the course Architectural Design Process and Prototype were to produce one or a few furniture in full scale and investigate the made furniture piece and it’s meaning. When does a chair cease to be just a chair? Is a chair still a chair if it’s form and design is constantly evolving? Illusion is a series of furniture created only in cotton thread and wallpaper paste. My furnitures took its output in philosopher Hannah Arrendts theories of our society, consumption and living habits. By creating a kind of “Anti-Furniture” that during the upcoming exhibition would change shape from day to day. I wanted to highlight what a chair is, and for how long time we still define it as a furniture object.
