Description
Jonas Ahnmé, Industrial Designer, MFA, head of the bachelor education. MEDes (Master of European Design) coordinator. After graduation in the year 2000 he worked at Björn Dahlström Design, designing various types of products, like drinking glasses for Iittala, tents for Fjällräven and large scale industry applications for Atlas Copco. In 2003 he started Ahnmé Design, and continued working with products in different scales and contexts, such as big industrial flexoprinters for EZ Engineering, pacifiers for children for Denty, and a sailing dinghy for eSEA. During recent years he has also been involved in software development, like the Kolormondo app, that shows the color space as an interactive globe. As Senior Lecturer in Industrial Design, he combines his interest in pedagogics with design knowledge. Focuses are on collaborations and artistically driven inclusive design, and on actively engaging in different contexts during the design process. Collaborations range from working with inclusive design in student driven projects with municipalities and organisations, to exploring the working environment of ambulance nurses, facilitating workshops with design students and refugees in Sweden, and merging textile students with design students and letting them co-create with 9 year olds. The latest collaborative project was in the fall of 2018, when students from Industrial Design and Interior Architecture & Furniture Design worked on the theme of Migration, starting out with one week in Lesbos and in Athens.
