The project is named after Carl Malmstrem, a Swedish furniture and interior designer who set up the Carl Malmsten Workshop in 1930, which later became a department at the Linköpings University.

The Project: Carl Malmsten made me do it.

The aim with this work is to try to create processes and products deriving from humanist values.

I have developed a humanistic design manifesto that I relate to in my work and based on it, I make wise choices.

In order to verify the work process, I have tried to answer to various philosophical choices, choice of materials, choice of cultural values and choices in life that I have as a human being.
