How do we define Scandinavian Design? What focus does it have? What are the attributes of my own designculture and what chracteristics and tradition lay within Japanese products and furniture-making?

Within our tradition and visual memory we classify designproducts into cultural sections. This is why I focused my research on cultural moments. Therefore I analysed culture-based artefacts and designobjects to find out deep-rooted traditions, often used materials, developed techniques, colors and forms within three different cultures. I created a method to cross these attributes to link old techniques with new material or viceversa.

One (KH1) of several drafts created within my method I prototyped as part of my Bachelor‘s thesis and for the graduate-exibition »Parcours« in Muenster.

The infografic shows what cultural influences the design of KH1 had.
