Troughout my professional life I have worked with research topics both in theory and in practice that are focusing on expanding and crossing knowledge borders and practice for creating a better and more inspirering society. My Phd explores the borders between business and art and how human basic aesthetic needs and creativity are transformed in a industry and was a pioneering work within the field of artistic research. In my practice I have both run my own design companies and during nine years been the president of the largest design and art university in Sweden (Konstfack). In the field of design I have being part of the knowledge transfer from design specialists to designtools for all in the purpose to use design methods to accomplish human centred solutions on complex societal challenges. In my role of director of Openlab I am part of that journey for the publc sector and the academy.
