My name is Kristine, and I am a writer, lecturer and the author of Aesthetic Sustainability – Product Design and Sustainable Usage. I am currently in the process of writing another book concerning anti-trendy and sustainable living, and I am absolutely loving the contemplation and investigations.


I have recently moved from central Copenhagen to Bali, Indonesia together with my two beautiful boys and my wonderful partner. Life in Copenhagen was good; the city is friendly and green, we lived in a great neighbourhood with lots of cool cafes and organic grocery stores, we were surrounded by fun, kindhearted people, and we didn’t need to own a car, since we just bicycled everywhere.
However, we were longing for sunshine, coconuts, adventure, and especially for a simpler life in closer connection with nature. And so, in early July 2018 we made the big move, after getting rid of all of our unneeded belongings and selling our home.
As a part of moving from Copenhagen I gave up my job as Associate Professor in Sustainable Fashion at Copenhagen School of Design and Technology.

We now live in the middle of the jungle at the end of a dirt road. I spend my days in my jungle office writing, reading and drawing. And I find great pleasure in doing research in the surrounding regions on e.g. permaculture, crafts traditions and off-grid living.

The Immaterialist is my online laboratory, in which I explore the sustainable and fulfilling life in words and photos. I welcome you to join my journey.
