Johan Redstrom is a professor of design at the Umeå Institute of Design, Umeå University in Sweden. He has previously been a studio director at the Interactive Institute, an adjunct professor at the School of Textiles at the University of Borås, Sweden, and an associate research professor at the Center for Design Research at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Denmark. He received his PhD in 2001 from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. In 2006, he received the Design Studies Award and in 2009 he was elected as a fellow of the Design Research Society.
Combining philosophical and artistic approaches, his research focuses on experimental design and critical practice. Research programs include Slow Technology on designing for reflection rather than efficiency in use, IT+Textiles on combining traditional design and new technologies, Static! and subsequently Switch! on increasing energy awareness through critical and conceptual design.
