We are pleased to announce an exhibition Wooden rollator by Christoffer Ohlander on September 23 (Sat) and 24 (Sun), as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura.
Christoffer Ohlander is an industrial designer based in Stockholm.
Since graduating with a bachelor’s degree in industrial design from Konstfack in Stockholm 2015, he has been working as a design engineer for renowned audio company Teenage Engineering. Christoffers work has won several design awards and was last exhibited during the 2016 Japan design week.
By implementing a human-centred product design, he tries to enhance the users well-being. He tries to create products that fulfill emotional needs, while still being functional.
Here are some words from the artist himself.
The wooden rollator is a crossover between furniture and aid-product, made for indoor use. The benefits of using wood are many – it can make the rollator lighter, more environmentally friendly and durable. I’m trying to create a rollator that is not seen as a necessary evil, but as something to empower the user both functionally and on an emotional level.
