In my degree project I have analysed the reasons behind concealing products in our homes. With social behavioural literature, consumer research articles, inspirational conversations and an extensive survey as a foundation, I was able to establish and analyse four different motivations behind concealing objects. Those were: Safety, Peace of Mind, Ambition and Status and Social Shame.
With the four different motivations as a background I could create different concepts which worked as symbols for different behaviours found in the analysis. I continued working with two concepts which resulted in the making of a small light cabinet and a document filing unit. The objects were exhibited at the degree project exhibition in central Lund, Sweden 16th - 22nd of June 2011. (Less)
