Inspiration was drawn from the furniture’s heritage and ACNE’s creative studio essence. Seven pieces was designed, a valet stand, an escritoire, a library ladder, a tabouret, a pendant lamp and a vitrine. The research made was emphasized on historic furniture, but also on what could suit a company such as ACNE. The Design process involved creating mood boards, sketching, building sketch models and finally, 3D modelling in both Rhino and Solid Works. The end result of the thesis work is in renderings. However, prototyping - with a small production in mind - is currently being developed in a collaboration between ACNE and Carl Malmstens carpentry school in Stockholm. (Less)
