Abstract [sv]

Vårt samhälle är uppbyggt av normer som säger hur vi bör se ut, bete oss och leva. Många av dessa normer fokuserar på hur en person som man eller kvinna bör vara i förhållande till sitt kön. Könsnormer återspeglas i design och det vi formger, i produkter, möbler och byggnader. Genom ett genusspecificerat normkritiskt förhållningssätt undersöker vi hur könsnormer uppkommer i design och hur vi som formgivare kan designa normkritiskt. Med mönsterdesign som undersökande metod vill vi belysa och undersöka hur könsnormer upprepas i det vi formger, precis som ett mönster definieras av linjer och former som upprepas eller upplevs att göra det.

Under vår undersökning framkommer det att mönster kan bidra till diskussion och ställningstagande som fungerar i flera forum. Vi undersöker hur unisex och manligt och kvinnligt kan gestaltas i mönster och hur normkritik fungerar som förhållningssätt i en designprocess.

Abstract [en]

Our society is made up of norms that say how we should look, behave and live our lives. Many of these norms focuses on how you as a man or woman should behave in relation to your gender. Gender norms are reflected in design and what we design in products, furniture and buildings. With a gender specified norm critical approach, we examine how gender norms are reflected in design and how we as designers can design with norm criticism. With pattern design as an exploratory approach, we want to highlight and examine how gender norms affect and is repeated in what we design, just like a pattern is defined by lines and shapes that are repeated or experienced to be repeated.

During our investigation it appears that patterns can contribute with discussion and stance that will work in multiple forums. We examine how unisex and male and female can be embodied in patterns, and how norm criticism works as an approach in a design process.
