Anette Coaching What's up

  1. Launch of coaching

    Coaching offer, London, July, 2017

    Anette is certified as an executive coach from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) since September 2016. She is now offering coaching sessions.

    Coaching is an enquiry where the coach listens and helps you discover your real priorities through a series of conversations. Over a number of sessions (6-10) with intervals of the 2-4 weeks that we work together we will explore what you want to achieve with the aim to help you release and connect with your creative potential.

    Come along for a coaching experience!

  2. BOOST metadesign learning cycle

    This spring we have been engaging in an exciting learning cycle for the project BOOST.

    BOOST metadesign learning cycle, Skype, 27 June, 2017

    BOOST metadesign is based at the Department of Design, Linnaeus University, and conducted by Mathilda Tham, Sara Hyltén-Cavallius and Åsa Ståhl. The three-year-long development project explores needs of and dreams for housing and inhabiting at the intersection of migrants, students and an ageing population in a context of sustainability, and in the region of Småland, southern Sweden. The exploration is mainly taking place through collaborative workshops together with students, migrants and older people (wiser people, super adults, senior citizens, older adults) as well as architects, city planners, representatives for housing societies and municipalities. This will generate scenarios and guidelines directed at decision makers and citizens. To enrich and contextualize the practice, Anette Lundebye and Hannah Jones (Stanford University) have identified a series of practical examples and theory, in the remit of housing and our particular audiences. Specifically, we are interested in intergenerational housing concepts and practices. We set up a Skype learning cycle where practice and theory are shared and discussed and we generate ideas for the next steps. A key theme that we discuss are the norms around housing, ownership, temporalities of a home, the standard of a home, the amount of space privacy requires.

  3. The Future of Natural Materials

    Grow. Lamp – A Grow It Yourself by Danielle Trofe, using Ecovative’s patented Mushroom® Material technology.

    Anette recently did some consultancy work for Space Doctors, which consisted of desktop research on the future of natural materials (ingredients and processes) that might form the basis of different kinds of consumer packaged goods in the future. The examples looked at various areas from biomimicry to regenerative processes that might also be compostable or that stimulate or trigger natural processes, from mycelium, moss, kelp or citrus fibre. Much of what may form the future of the bioeconomy, or the biocycle economy.

  4. BOOST: ‘Future of Home’ facilitation guide

    BOOST ‘Future of Home’ facilitation guide, Spring 2017

    During Spring 2017, Hannah Jones and Anette developed a set of metadesign workshops and a facilitation guide as part of the BOOST metadesign project led by Mathilda Tham at the Department of Design, Linnaeus University. The guide includes: a definition of metadesign and crucial concepts and principles, alongside facilitation guidelines for a set of metadesign tools to lead a ‘dreams & needs’ workshop and a ‘future of home’ workshop. These were used by Sara Hyltén-Cavallius and Åsa Ståhl in a series of collaborative workshops together with students, migrants and older people as well as architects, city planners, building companies, housing associations and municipalities to explore the needs, dreams and visions to inform the ‘Future of Home’ in the region of Småland, Sweden.

  5. Launch of Småland Living Lab

    Labhall, Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden 27. October, 2016.

    A year after the idea of a Småland Living Lab was born, we designed and facilitated a multi-stakeholder one-day workshop to synergise knowledge and interests, and generate concrete ideas for projects in the remit of sustainability in Småland. The 41 participants went through a day of cooking, thinking, talking, mapping, making and forging new connections across: local authorities, NGO’s, researchers, industry, cultural sector, craft, small-hold farming and more. Now we are exploring the rich material that came out and preparing it for a next stage of funding applications and living lab’ing.

  6. Foreign Investment at the Linnean Society London

    "LOST" performance at the Linnean Society of London, Burlington House, London, 29. September 2016

    As a member of foreign investment Anette presented the performance LOST in collaboration with choreographer Dickson Mbi at the Linnean Society in London as part of the book launch of Wild New Territories: Portraits of the urban and the Wild edited by Ron den Daas and Kathy Kenny. The exhibition focused on the potential collapse of ecosystems within historically charged urban contexts. The performance articulated, biodiversity and the loss of species within the UK. Over the last 200 years, 413 species have become extinct in England.


  7. Metadesigning Futures

    Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, London, 18. September 2016

    As part of London Design Festival and Creative Matters: A New Forum for Creative Futures (15 – 18 September 2016) –  the metadesign research team invited to the event: Metadesigning Futures to celebrate several decades of research from the MA Design Futures programme at Goldsmiths. With the on-going question of how creativity is harnessed in the world, and how designers can play a more effective role in change? the participants (a mixture of experts, including graduates, lecturers and researchers who have developed and/or applied aspects of metadesign to their work,) engaged in playful speculation about possible futures through a series of short talks and workshops. Mathilda and Anette facilitated the ‘Bisociating New Futures’ workshop – a playful and rapid exercise to tease out fresh and possibly surprising new concepts as an alternative to collective brainstorming.


  8. Curious Design Change workshop

    Curious Design Change Workshop at Linnaeus University, Sweden, 16. October 2015.

    To launch the design research platform Curious Design Change that Mathilda leads at Linnaeus University, Sweden, we designed and delivered a transdisciplinary workshop. The 30 participants included researchers from the fields of design, literature, gender studies, archeology, economics, history, informatics, and some externals — energy authority, municipality, business incubator. The workshop took place in the huge wood and metal workshop in three consecutive sessions on: Curiosity (mapping research interests and possible synergies), Change (possible strategies for implementation) and food for thought (making an organic lunch with a local chef). The question guiding the session was ‘what is the potential of our collaborations?’ and to explore what new and exciting transdisciplinary research may emerge between design and various fields such as gender studies or …  Imagine a new field called:Intergalactic gender expression!

  9. Swatching in Blue

    Anette Lundebye, Swatching in Blue (2013) Audio-visual piece. 1:04mins

    A day is blue, a moment red, a pale silence, a noisy mind… Anette participated in the Regents Open Exhibition (17. June – 31. July, 2015 ) – a group exhibition with a audio-visual piece from the series Swatching: a series of moving images that samples emotions and is a homage to the Albers (Annie and Joseph). Playing with colour refers to Wittgenstein’s concept of how colour concepts can be treated like the concepts of sensation. As moving images they also play with the notion of time and the role of contemplation in our busy lives today. Watch it here: swatching in blue

  10. Designing learning scenarios for futures of sustainability

    Nordes 2015: Design Ecologies, Konstfack, Stockholm, 9. June, 2015

    For their ambitious 3-hour workshop at the Nordes 2015: Design Ecologies conference, Dr. Hannah Jones and Anette held the question: How can we re-design design education to design itself, so that it can become really responsive and effective on behalf of the environment? The aim of the workshop was to facilitate the co-design of learning experiences, which explored and responded to a range of sustainable futures scenarios at a systemic level. The workshop outcomes took the form of design ‘seeds’ or prototypes of these sustainable futures learning experiences that might be further developed into classes etc. One of the key insights from the workshop was the experiential ways in which the teams of participants imagined and communicated these future learning-scenarios.

  11. Oxford Design Charette

    Oxford, St Hilda's College. 26 August, 2014.

    In August 2014 the staff at Department of Design, Linnaeus University, Sweden gathered in Oxford for two intensive learning days in preparation for the launch of two new degree programmes, Design + Change and Visual Communication + Change , in 2015.  Mathilda and Anette facilitated a design charette which  enabled the staff to go through the six terms of the three years of the degree programmes in one intense day!

    A key insight was how valuable an immersive process without disruptive show-and-tells can be. The staff engaged in a series of mini-projects, involving mapping, role-play, making and more, staying inside the process all day long. Instead of formal presentations of project results, each term ended with a quiet moment of ‘graphic harvesting’ of experiences through means of drawing and writing.

  12. foreign investment in Hong Kong

    Oi! art center, Hong Kong, 23. January 2014

    As a member of foreign investment, Anette went to Hong Kong to present their pioneering project One Square Foot of Sky as part of the exhibition “Collector Club” curated by Ying Kwok at the art space Oi!  from 24 January – 21 April 2014. This piece forms part of a newly developed work that had its debut in London 2012. The piece poses taxing questions of the monetary, symbolic and copyright value of the sky and offers a new valuation for the skyline above Oi! With it’s reputation as one of the top investment capitals for the property market, Hong Kong is also an emerging fine art market. Beauty will embrace the beast and ‘investments of passion’ will become the future.

  13. metadesign and a music festival

    Masters Design (MA) programme at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Oslo 4. November 2013

    To kick off this year’s Socially Responsive Design (SRvD) project for the MA design students at Oslo National Academy of the Arts  (KHiO), Anette facilitated 2-days of workshops using a metadesign tools and methods to look at issues around sustainability and design at a systemic level. This year’s case study is the Hove Festival, one of  Norway’s largest music festivals. With the aim to address sustainable consumption and behaviour change, students will question: How can a festival be doing the most good? Through observation and research the students should create interventions and playful events that can challenge wasteful behaviours and attitudes of the festival goers.

  14. playing with diversities for socially responsive design

    Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje, Macedonia 5. October 2013

    How do you work as ‘socially responsive designer’? During Skopje Design Week, Anette gave a three-hour creative workshop where participants were introduced to a playful design process based on ‘bisociation’ (Koestler 1964, Jones and Lundebye, 2012) that has evolved from the on-going research into ‘metadesign’ tools. The set of tools provide an effective starting point for rapid prototyping of design seeds with the aim to create socially responsive design. Key themes that came up in this workshop tended to focus on: craftsmanship, gift economy, shared ownership, localism and storytelling. The workshop was supported by Norsk Form and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

  15. Designing together for the 21st Century

    Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje, Macedonia 4. October 2013

    What happens when designers shift their focus from satisfying consumer desires, to facilitating new social possibilities? Anette was invited by press to exit project space to give a talk at Skopje Design Week (1-6 oct. 2013). The talk took a closer look at two frameworks that champion transformative approaches to design: Metadesign – the design of design, and Socially Responsive Design – that shifts from designing for people to designing with people. Through the manifesto: Designing together for the 21st Century  we explored some projects and practices that are responding to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The presentation was supported by Norsk Form and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

  16. Swarovski Futuring Workshop

    Wattens, Austria, 18 & 19 June, 2013.

    Anette was invited by the design research studio Loop.pH to be part of a team that designed and facilitated a two-day ‘futuring’ workshop for Swarovski.  The  aim was to explore ‘sustainable innovation’ and Swarovski’s future role as a corporate citizen. This ambitious workshop used a mix of approaches and tools from Metadesign and 100% Open and brought together a multidisciplinary group of experts from diverse disciplines including: mathematics, material science, social enterprise, sustainable design, synthetic biology and architecture to work together with Swarovski innovators.

  17. ‘Socially responsive design’ publication

    Published by Colophon: Kunsthøyskolen i Oslo/ Oslo National Academy of the Arts, 2013

    Anette and Hannah Jones contributed to this publication with ‘A Manifesto for Designing Together in the 21st Century’. The publication is dedicated to celebrate the past seven years of student projects and various forms of social interventions by design practitioners in the context of Socially Responsive Design  on the MA Design Programme at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. The editors Maziar Raein and Sanneke Duijf say that it is intended more as a primer for debate rather than a definitive book. The design was done by former students Steinar & Mats.

  18. A case of SRVD at DESIS-UK

    Northumbria University, Newcastle, Tuesday 21. May 2013

    For the first Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability (DESIS) UK Network event, Anette and Hannah Jones presented the case: Metadesigning spaces of engagement & exchange. This Socially Responsive Design project took place in 2011 with the students on MA Design at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) in the context of the revitalisation of a multi-cultural shopping centre, Veivet senter, in Oslo. Our role as facilitators was to offer a Metadesign process with holistic & creative methodologies. By using a ‘possibility-seeking’ approach, rather than ‘problem solving’, the students have to work and adapt their collaborative designs to what emerges in the situation – making them both user-centred and context specific. The case is an example of how to employ design thinking and skills to deliver sustainable social and environmental benefits to communities.

  19. Stone soup

    Zalog, Ljubljana, Slovenia 27. March 2013

    Anette was invited to Ljubljana to work with the artists Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska in a project organised by the architect Bostjan Bugaric. The context was Zalog a suburb of Ljubjana. As an output of our ‘Zalog conversations’ we re-enacted the ‘Stone Soup’, a work that Hristina Ivanovska has previously done in Stockholm amongst other places. The premise of this performative art intervention is a coming together of ‘foreigners’ into a community, and the participants are invited to make a soup by bringing a chosen ingredient. Once the soup is made all the participants are served the soup whose flavour depends on the gifts each person brought to the pot. This stone soup and gesture has historical roots in folk-tales as well as ‘potluck’ and gift-economies in various communities. This intervention inscribed itself as part of a bigger investigation into the area and the programme: Cultural Acupuncture Treatment For Suburb, which has as focus to improve public spaces in the suburbs in six localities around Central European capitals.

  20. sky mile by foreign investment

    Wild New Territories, London 19 & 20 September 2012

    foreign investment did a new piece in which Anette is involved. This time the context is the exhibition called Wild New Territories; a project that aims to challenge some of the widespread assumptions on the disconnect between ‘wilderness’, ‘humanity’ and ‘nature’. Here foreign investment speculate on the value of the sky above the Kings Cross area in London. This work can be described as a “peinture vivante” and includes an Urban Shepherd and the Pearly King and Princess of St. Pancras. The performances took place at Canada House and then at Camley Natural Park in Kings Cross, London.
