    Att öka status på second hand-inredning: Hur man gör second hand till något nytt och fräscht2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With the current climate changes and a continual growth of consumption in Sweden, it is important to seek solutions on how we can influence to a more sustainable way of life. This study is examining how product design could be used in order to affect consumers to shop more home furnishing second hand.

    By using methods from emotional design, where the users’ needs are in focus, the goal is to find out what one can do to make second hand to be seen as more attractive and gain higher status. Theories from circular economy and design for sustainable development constitutes the base of the process and contributes with knowledge in how a more sustainable society can be reached. The solution’s purpose is to reduce waste and give existing products a prolonged life.

    The first part of the process gave insights in second hand-trading and identified needs. A following analysis of the users’ needs and concerns, plus specification of demands, became the framework of the following design process. Iterations of brainstorming sessions and user studies shaped and developed the result. The final concept was a tool for non-profit thrift shops. The tool is an app which should be used as an instruction and inspirational working portal on how to, in an easy way, fix home furnishing that otherwise would have been thrown away. This is because a major part of the home decoration that is donated is considered not possible to sell and therefore gets recycled or burnt up.

    The result is contributing with new ideas of concepts in the second hand-trade. It shows that people with no experience of design can be using methods from design to work in a circular way and threw that contribute to a more sustainable society. It also shows that there are possibilities to use design to change consumers mindset and perception of second hand.
