How do we create a sustainable design in a world that revolves around consumption and mass production? Choosing a sustainable material for your design is part of the solution. But I believe we should take it one step further. One of the key issues, I think is that we don’t have a close bond between the products that we purchase today. We need to create a circular system where the main goal is to make a product that lasts, not only aesthetically. The product should be of such good quality that you could use it for generations. We need to go back to our roots.

The clothing hanger is supposed to illustrate something that grows and reaches for the sky, like a three. It has four tall branches with hangers and two shelves. This clothing hanger could work perfectly in your bedroom for the clothes and jewelry you take off before going to bed or in your entry hall for your jacket and keys. I wanted the design to feel like it was handmade, but still look like a beautiful furniture design that could fit into Bolias portfolio.

Industrial design, Bachelor project, 2019.

By the aesthetics assistive products possess, the users get labeled as people who are sick and abnormal. The brief and the goal of the project was to design toilet armrests with the universal design principles to make the bathroom atmosphere feel more appealing but also use this project as an example of that we can think differently when we design for these marginalized groups of people.

The garden protector, industrial design, 2018.

Luna is a garden luminaire that was designed to use its reflections to scare away animals from your flowers or plants. The thin sheets spin with the wind and create reflections to scare away the animals with light from the sun during the day, and with light from the light sources on the arms. During the day it stores solar energy in a battery that can be used during the nights. Luna is portable which makes it easy to move around in the garden.

The luminaire stool, light and color project, 2018.

Vio is an outdoor luminaire stool that is lightened with only one LED. The furniture is designed for urban environments, that glows during the night and that distinguish from the environment during the day. The tilted seating surface makes rain drip off easier.
