THERE, NEAR AND HERE: SCALE AND HORIZON IN DESIGN BY STEFAN HOLMLID
Thursday, May 30, 2013 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
RMIT Design Hub Victoria Street, corner of Swanston Street Melbourne, VIC 3001 Australia
We had the immense pleasure in hosting Stefan’s talk on service design.
Stefan Holmlid is associate professor at the Human-Centered Systems and is heading the Interaction and Service design research group. His current research projects make a deep dive into the realms of services, especially concerning the expressive powers of design methods and techniques in service development and service innovation, such as co-creative practices in service prototyping. The idea that design objects and design materials can be both dynamic, active and that the design is co-created “in use”, drive his research of relevant theoretical grounding for design, inspire his design research on materials, and challenges the way we understand how to prototype design objects for user involvement. He is a co-founder of the the international Service Design and Service Innovation conference, ServDes, the Service Design in Tourism conference, and the International Service Design Network.
Associate Professor Stefan Holmlid (Linköping University) & Dr Gavin Melles (Swinburne University) gratefully acknowledge their joint STINT (Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education) Initiation Grant (IB2012 4052) in Service Design and Design Education for funding A/P Holmlid’s visit to Melbourne.
