Havfolket

by Tuva Aga Malm

De brutale naturkreftene som preger øykulturen i Nord-Norge fascinerer meg. Vi ser en øykultur med dype tradisjoner innen fiske og handel, der kamp mot natur har styrt bosetting og levemåte. Men øykulturen er i sterk endring.

Inside Down

by Laura Andrea Peña Cuellar

The idea then was to create a form of cave or quarry like structure, which followed the premises of the myth describing the underground of Gamle Aker. I made this decision in order to draw my user into some kind of closer relation with the myth, as a way of nurturing the mystery that surrounds the place.

We Grew Together

by Mari Koppanen

We Grew Together is a culturally sensitive material study about Amadou: a suede-like material derived from a polypore mushroom called Fomes fomentarius (eng. Tinder Mushroom) growing mainly on birch and beech trees. The material has a long handicraft tradition in Central Romania as the locals use it for small items such as hats and bags.

Bevar meg vel

by Martine Scheen

Prosjektet ‘Bevar meg vel’ er et masterprosjekt om brukertilpasset gjenbruk og transformasjon av arkitektur med kulturminneverdi.

Plantebanken - forskningspark for biomangfold.

Over the Deadline

by Nina Tsyboulskaia

There is an empty space after someone’s death, the question is if that space should be filled. “Over the deadline” is a project that tries to indicate the thin ethical line that I, as a designer, should consider in my work, and the location of that line is changing in the same tempo as everything else around me.

Nice Shelves

by Mads John Thomseth

«Fine Hyller» is an investigative design project. Its purpose is to explore different ways to build and interpret a shelf. Even though they’re called shelves, they’re really threedimensional sketches. They’re built quickly to accommodate my curiosity, mixing aesthetics. Hopefully I’ll see something new, with a goal of putting them back into context for others to enjoy.

Behind Closed Doors

by Charlotte Kristine Kristiansen

Behind Closed Doors is a project about loneliness and how we meet it. An attempt to use design to create reflection around how our relationship with this feeling is affected by all the negative focus we meet it with in media and society today. How the shame and taboo that arises here is creating a distance and alienation of loneliness and the lonely.

Life on Mars: The Great Indoors

by Christopher Caleb Hansen

In my project, I use a fictional scenario to speculate on a future human colonization of Mars. I use design fiction as a tool to understand the complex issues that lie in being a human being and the society we live in. By exploring these outcomes, we can better understand our current social, cultural and technological context.
