Erika Marthins

I am 26 year old Swedish Interaction Designer, particularly interested in creating bridges between distinct areas like for example food and technology, memories and social networks. After spending most of my life in Stockholm, my hometown, I decided to take on the challenge of learning a new language and, therefore, I moved to Switzerland in 2012 to learn French. I have been cultivating my passion for design and entrepreneurship since I was 16 years old and that led me to undertake a Bachelor of Visual Communication (Interaction Design Major) from Ecole Cantonal d’art de Lausanne (ECAL), in Switzerland with a Honours degree. This has led to exhibitions in places like Milan, San Francisco, Lyon and Hong Kong. My curiosity pushes me to constantly be creative and focused on innovative concept in every aspect of my research and daily life. While a desire to learn and explore new solutions for future problems is one of the most important drivers for me, what really excites me is creating a better world using new technology with great design. During a residency at Space10, IKEA's new future living lab, I got the opportunity to explore and in a playful manner design concepts for a smarter future of urban living. I strongly believe that collaborations and crossing disciplines in science, technology and art is the key to innovative solutions. Experimental research project triggers new perspectives and lead to rethink some of our distrust in the face of change and as regards, the future. My great passion for design and innovation is what inspires me to think about our relationship with technology in the world of tomorrow.
