Conference Paper
Full-text available
Starting from a codesign project on inclusive, pedagogical play practices in schools, this paper presents a phenomenological design experiment called Dramatic Reflection. The Dramatic Reflection experiment was created in collaboration with ped-agogical teams in two Danish schools for the purpose of exploring pedagogical actions regarding different...
Article
The aim of this paper is to emphasise the relevance and importance of sensibility, contemplation and craftmanship as a foundation for sustainable development driven by fashion and textile design. The paper looks beyond the frameworks and tools that often guide lecturers in higher educational institutions. Within design, we have access to several ne...
Chapter
Smart textiles have established a foothold in different academic fields, such as in chemistry, engineering, and in human-computer interaction (HCI). Within HCI, smart textiles are present in research in many ways, for example, as context, as means, or as focus. However, interdisciplinary projects tend to leave the implications of and to textile des...
Article
Full-text available
Experiments take various forms, have various purposes, and generate various knowledge; depending on how, when and why they are integrated in a design research study with a programmatic approach. This is what we will argue for throughout this article using examples and experiences from our now finalized Ph.D. studies. Reviewing the prevailing litera...
Article
Full-text available
The fashion industry is currently undergoing a radical change towards an overall sustainable paradigm shift. This paper investigates how the fashion collection, as a particular design framework, might be reconfigured as a strategic driver for garment longevity furthering sustainable fashion design. The study builds on a case study of a company offe...
Article
Purpose Suppliers stand in the wake of a new diversified strategic momentum in the global production network, where innovation is growing in importance. The term “supplier-driven innovation” is coined in contrast to the current hype on user-driven innovation; this paper aims to discuss the wicked problems for suppliers to actively engage in custome...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this working paper we discuss the role of Tangible Dialogue Tools (TDT) as mediating objects. We define TDT as a design research approach combining tangible means with semi-structured interviews. As such TDT are not only tools or techniques for design or design research. Rather they imply an action, namely a dialogue, based on a physical object....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents a study of three older women and their needs defining accessories, to understand the relationships between them and their favorite objects, and to clarify why they choose to wear them. The women were asked to showcase the accessories in their own home; thus the objects became enablers of conversations about personal life experie...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper is based on a pilot study of six parents’ preferences for baby clothing and their experience of value. We investigate ways in which design aesthetics, material and the senses have an impact on high use frequency aiming to understand longevity as a parameter for sustainability in textiles and clothing. We take as a starting point that lon...
Article
Product design, and especially relevant for this study in textile design, is concerned with designing not only products but also the materials that form the products. Here, designers should relate their materials and products to an existing context and environment that correspond to future users’ created meanings and experiences. Therefore, for des...
Chapter
In an era of increasingly available digital resources, many textile designers and makers find themselves at an interesting juncture between traditional craft processes and newer digital technologies. Highly specialized craft/design practitioners may now elect to make use of digital processes in their work, but often choose not to abandon craft skil...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Research through design is a murky field and there is an increasing interest in understanding its varied practices and methodology. In the research literature that is initially reviewed in this paper two positions are located as the most dominant representing opposite opinions concerning the nature of such a methodology. One position proposes a cro...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Product design, and especially relevant for this study textiles design, is concerned with designing not only the product itself, but just as much the material, which forms the product. It is further highly relevant that designers relate their materials and product to an existing context and environment that corresponds to meanings and experiences....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Design experiments are claimed to be a core means of inquiry in the research tradition of research-through-design. However, it is rarely articulated how the experiments were carried out in order to test a hypothesis, to begin a fruitful journey into unexplored design terrain or just gradually build knowledge. On the basis of the analysis of ten PhD...

Article
It is not rare that textile designers experience a need to explain or discuss decisions made during the design process. This article draws on the Fabric as Upholstery Workshop, which explored the Repertory Grid, an interview technique, as a tool for structuring a dialog about emotional value of applied textiles. Originally developed as a one-to-one...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
It is, today, widely appreciated that Research-through-Design – or Constructive Design Research as we will call it in this paper – allows for designers to produce knowledge based on the skills and capacities of the design field itself. However, most of the research fails to bridge the gap between the general notions of constructive design research...
Article
Full-text available
This is a report from an ongoing research project and as such it is work in progress. The paper proposes an exploratory approach in order to enable end-users to contribute with their experiences of emotional values of fabrics in use. It is suggested that the textile designer with her repertoire of (experiential, implicit and tacit) textile design k...
Article
Full-text available
In recent years the challenges for the textile industry has changed because of technological development and outsourcing. The consequence is an increased focus on innovation in the textile trade. This paper describes the objectives in a three year research project. In order to contribute to the estab- lishment of an initial framework for the projec...
Article
This is a report from an on-going research project within design research. The project involves a collaborative partner from the textile industry working with fabrics for upholstery. The author - herself a textile designer, is affiliated with the design unit in the company and the project has a very strong relation to design practice. Focusing on s...
