Torkel Dohmers Creative Lab
Above you’ll find the historical background to some of my research projects, commercial projects and experimental work. Mainly within transportation, architecture, interiors, product design, art projects, old graphics etc. (fairly chronological
order - newest first). In short this is a brief work diary including legacy projects…
Using form and design to communicate and evoke, I am drawing up concepts, visions and scenarios within transportation, habitation/architecture, new technologies or anything intelligent improving life on this planet really… Striving to collaborate
with inventors and visionaries alike to realise disruptive and evolutionary projects. With an obsessive side interest in shape, I am practising sculptural experiments that I take advantage of in many of my projects and for architectural/public
Three key words: progress, symbiosis and love! With ambitions to make the world a better and a more beautiful place, main objectives are working with solutions that will benefit people and environment/nature in some way, further to create a strong
long lasting (loving!) relationship with the resulting product, service or project. Quite ambitious sure, but should be the responsibility of every contemporary designer and architect in my opinion… I am nowadays more selective with involvement
in projects. If there is no room for progress, sustainability or using morally correct and environmentally friendly materials, I’m off. Simple as that!
Way back I started out as an engineer in electronics and computer technology then switched over to graphic design and advertising to further step up into the world of product and vehicle design (yes Peter Horbury, then Head of Design at Volvo
Cars, played a role in this…). Now with a Master’s degree at Royal College of Art in London I am privileged having worked with some of the world’s most intelligent and innovative designers and individuals (including Jüri Kann, Marc Newson,
Sir Clive Sinclair, Ora-Ito).
PS. The site of Torkel Dohmers is now celebrating 23 years on the web! (In 1993 people asked me why anyone would need to be on the internet… Huh :)
Get in touch if you have a suitable project in line with above values that you want to bring to life or for general interest of collaboration…
