Abstract [sv]

Rapporten redogör för mitt examensarbete, ett bänksystem för det offentliga rummet. Arbetet har genomförts i samarbete med Lammhults möbel AB. Examensarbetet är en resa som beskriver min designprocess, som var styrd av en väldigt specificerad brief. Rapporten beskriver ett nära samarbete med Lammhults produktutvecklare och utmaningen i att gestalta en produktionsanpassad produkt. En annan del av mitt examensarbete var att genomföra formundersökningar. I detta arbete utgick jag från Cheryl akner-koler formteoretiska lära. I formexperimenten har jag använt mitt bänksystem som grundform. Formstudierna har jag gjort för att få djupare kunskaper inom ämnet och hur jag på ett mera teoretiskt plan kan beskriva och analysera form. Då mitt samarbete med Lammhults sträcker sig under ett års tid kommer den slutgiltiga designen inte vara prototypen jag redogör för i denna repport eller den jag visar på examensutställningen.

Abstract [en]

The report explains my Bachelor thesis, a bench system for public spaces. The work was done in collaboration with Lammhults möbel AB. The examproject is a journey that describes my designprocess which was guided by a very detailed briefing. The report describes my work that was very closely linked with the Lammhults product development team and the challenge was to design a commercial product that can be put into production. Another part of my degreeproject was to do form studies. The form study I did through formexperiments mixed with formtheory. In the experiments, I used my final shape of the bench as a bas. The formstudies is done to gain my deeper knowledge and understanding of the form field. This will work as a base to my more theoretical and analytical part of analyze form. My cooperation with Lammhults extends for a year, so probability risk is that the prototype I will show here unfortunately, not are the final productionready prototype.
