Kom Hit  
Biodiversity (2020)

Design is often based on human needs. In the project Kom hit (Come here) Pia Högman researches what happens if you change target group and look to the needs of insects and bees.

How can one design to promote biodiversity in a place that is adapted to humans? A collection of small spaces made from simple raw materials are built to make bugs and bees thrive in city surroundings.

The project is based on goal 15.5* of the UN’s Global Sustainable Development Goals, as the aim of the project is to create better conditions for greater biodiversity in an adverse environment. The installations also become a contribution to people’s living environment as the objects visually affect the urban environment and also favor the local ecosystem.

*United Nations Global Goal 15.5: Protecting Biodiversity and Natural Habitats.

Pia Högman is a designer with a great interest in exploring and deveoping traditional materials and techniques. Applying old working methods within a modern context to conserve, modernize and learn from a historical way of creating.

Her work is often hands on and with a close relationship to the raw material within the design process, experimenting and researching new ways of using traditional techniques with sustainable, local or in other ways interesting resources.

Högman graduated from the masters program in furniture design at The Royal Dansih Academy of Fine Arts School of Architechture, Design and Conservation in Copenhagen in June 2018.
