Consequently, some of these companies moved their designers from the end of the product-development process, where their contribution is limited, to the beginning. Their human-centric design approach proved to be a differentiator: those companies that used it have reaped the financial benefits of creating products shaped by human needs. In order for this approach to be adopted across large organizations, it needed to be standardized.
Cue design thinking, a formalized framework of applying the creative design process to traditional business problems. Design thinking was coined in the 's by David Kelley and Tim Brown of IDEO, with Roger Martin, and encapsulated methods and ideas that have been brewing for years into a single unified concept.
What — Definition of Design Thinking Design thinking is an ideology supported by an accompanying process. A complete definition requires an understanding of both. Defintion: The design thinking ideology asserts that a hands-on, user-centric approach to problem solving can lead to innovation, and innovation can lead to differentiation and a competitive advantage.
This hands-on, user-centric approach is defined by the design thinking process and comprises 6 distinct phases, as defined and illustrated below. How — The Process The design-thinking framework follows an overall flow of 1 understand, 2 explore, and 3 materialize. Within these larger buckets fall the 6 phases: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test, and implement. Empathize: Conduct research in order to develop knowledge about what your users do, say, think, and feel. Imagine your goal is to improve an onboarding experience for new users.
In this phase, you talk to a range of actual users.
Consider the onboarding example again. In the define phase, use the data gathered in the empathize phase to glean insights. Is there a common pain point across many different users? Identify unmet user needs. Ideate: Brainstorm a range of crazy, creative ideas that address the unmet user needs identified in the define phase. Give yourself and your team total freedom; no idea is too farfetched and quantity supersedes quality.
At this phase, bring your team members together and sketch out many different ideas. Then, have them share ideas with one another, mixing and remixing, building on others' ideas. In , the designers at Folkform were invited to experiment at the factory using the traditional manufacturing process of the board material.
This resulted in a completely new Masonite material in which flowers and butterflies were pressed into the boards, giving new emotional and symbolic value to the traditional wallboards. The narratives tell the story behind how a new hardboard material was created using the old manufacturing process and how the traditional material was used in radically new ways, resulting in innovation of the products' meaning.
My colleague and I collaboratively created handmade patterns made from real flowers and butterflies on the surface of the hardboard. Figure 3 Open in figure viewer PowerPoint Real flowers and butterflies were placed by hand on the Masonite pulp by the designers at Folkform [Colour figure can be viewed at wileyonlinelibrary.
We managed to create a new expression of the traditional material by putting flowers and other organic material on top of the pulp before it was pressed in the steam press into board material. One of the furniture pieces and a manifestation of this material exploration became The Butterfly Cabinet from the collector series. The furniture collection consisted of three different cabinets, which were all made from hardboard material.
They were first exhibited at the Mint Gallery in London. The new material in the final cabinet was the result of experiments with the old hardboard material inside the Masonite factory.
Real butterflies and flowers were pressed into the wooden board. This was a radical new idea and a technique that had never been tried before.
The butterfly wings merged with the wood and became like a tattoo on the wooden surface. The material was playing with the perception of the eye, between the old material and the new organic details that were added.
The first time we visited the factory was on an early winter morning. We were invited to try out our idea of pressing real flowers into the wooden hardboard. Natural flowers or the thin butterfly wings were placed on the Masonite pulp before it was inserted into the huge Masonite presses to embed a permanent organic decoration. The first experiments were conducted at night while the normal production line was closed.
Looking back at the manufacturing process, I realize that one of the main features of the flower boards was merging new and old material. Manipulating the tensions between the handmade and industrial process, since we were climbing up the production line where the hardboards were manufactured to scatter flowers on the pulp and create the final patterns on the boards.
After our first exhibition, at the Milan furniture fair for young designers in , I received an email from Adam Stechs, a journalist based in Prague, who asked us if we wanted to try out pressing his whole butterfly collection into our furniture.
We invited the butterfly collector Adam to take part in the design process and he gave us all 32 of his butterflies for the project. We commissioned a photographer to take a picture of him and his collection before we made the cabinet. This picture was later used as part of the exhibition. The donated specimens have been added to wet chipboard, so when pressed a permanent organic decoration is embedded into the Masonite hardboard.
The first series of Masonite cabinets, called The collectors, in which natural herbarium collections were pressed into the boards, was first exhibited at the Mint Gallery in London, and later on the cabinets were bought by gallery S.

The boards were completely covered in dust and we could smell the damp wooden hardboard material.
In many ways this phone call was the starting point for the new collection of cabinets and the idea to combine old and new material in the same piece of furniture. Among the boards we found most fascinating were the wooden hardboards with a leather pattern.
The leather structure was so beautiful; the material tried to imitate a leather surface but in wood. Based on these boards from the s and s, and new material produced at the factory, we designed the cabinets. Each cabinet become a collage of Masonite from different time periods and a monument to the material, and the design of the cabinets became a combination of old and new material in the same piece of furniture. The furniture line and exhibition of Masonite cabinets was designed exclusively for the Swedish interior brand Svenskt Tenn.
The cabinets were limited edition and made from original recovered Masonite from , in combination with the last Masonite boards produced in the factory at Rundvik in April Figure 5 Masonite Cabinet with Red Doors, made from old and new Masonite material designed by Folkform in , Svenskt Tenn [Colour figure can be viewed at wileyonlinelibrary.
The starting point for the design of the furniture was to combine the traditional surface of the material in new ways, and to play with the form and composition of the drawers.
This cabinet was made entirely from the standard boards of Masonite we found at the factory in Rundvik while we were visiting. The different boards created the front panels of the drawers on the cabinet; each drawer was unique in its form and proportion and as wholeness the new combinations of material created a graphic and at the same time simple abstract expression.

We saw the new beauty in the Masonite boards and began to play with the different thicknesses and surfaces. Later in the same year, we presented the Unique Standard collection, which consisted of a set of furniture and an exhibition.
The collection was first launched in a small display of Folkform's work during the Prague design week, and some months later we were showing the collection in Stockholm at the contemporary art gallery Crystal Palace. The exhibition was an independent design event outside the main furniture fair. The basis for the design process and the exhibition was to investigate questions such as how to combine simple industrial material in new ways to create new expressions.
We made several pieces of furniture in different materials with the same question as a starting point, to find the answer through the material, form and context. We saw the new beauty in the Masonite boards and began to play with the different thicknesses and surface treatments of the boards, such as linseed and oiled Masonite in combination with wax treatment.
How could we renew this material, which had been forgotten since the s, and make people look at it with new eyes? The furniture was later acquired by the National Museum of Art and Design in Oslo in and sold at the contemporary design auction in The cabinet was made in an edition of 10 pieces.
In our work with the Masonite cabinet with 18 drawers, we created a new interpretation of an old standard material. Figure 7 Masonite cabinet with 18 drawers from the Unique Standard collection. Designed by Folkform in , National Museum Norway [Colour figure can be viewed at wileyonlinelibrary.
