My work includes freelance industrial design, lecturing and interdisciplinary collaborations. Projects range from norm-critial speculative design, furniture and home accessories, to user centered health innovation. I am also a founding member of design & architecture studio Objecthood, with clients such as Messe Frankfurt, KLONG, Skultuna, Stolab and Sagaform.

Swedish by nationality, I graduated from Central Saint Martins 2007 and now work in Halmstad as designer and researcher.
