His work spans over four decades and he still continues to be a leading light in related fields like User Experience, Interaction design and more recently in Service Design.

The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with Pelle, joined by Ann Light (Northumbria University, UK), Paul Dourish (University of California, Irvine, US) and Anne Galloway (Victoria University of Wellington, NZ).All welcome – please pass on to your networks.
