I study and teach design for wellbeing and experience in architecture and interior architecture
I graduated from Kolding School of Arts and Crafts in 1994 as a textile designer specialising in weaving. My career has been a journey with twists and turns, with lots of loops between several interesting touch points such as art, design, research and teaching. The common denominator for all the pathways has always been materials, texture and tangible aspects in combination with aesthetics, curiosity and context. In 2007 I entered academia with an Industrial PhD Scholarship. Today, in 2017, I am the Head of Research & Development at Design School Kolding taking a deep interest in sustainability and research through design. All along the way I have pursued an artistic career, in recent years on a very limited basis due to my academic work. For me as an academic rooted in practice it is crucial to combine doing with theorizing.
What I like most about my job is to spread beauty around the city of Montréal.
Using our design research, we help companies create workplace ecosystems that promote wellbeing.
