Oskar Rexfelt

Docent at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Design and Human Factors

Oskar Rexfelt’s research considers the development of user-centred products and services. His dissertation, User-Centred Design and Technology-Mediated Services, explores the conditions for developing integrated products and services. The aim of Oskar’s research is to develop methodological support for designing usable solutions that benefits the customer. He also researches consumer acceptance and adoption of sustainable consumption patterns (e.g. sharing, recirculation and access based consumption).Oskar is Director of studies for the graduate school “Human-Technology-Design”
