In 2010 I graduated in Human-Computer Interaction. I have 18 months of full-time experience as user interface designer at a CMS company in the city of Aalborg, Northern Jutland.

Now I'm working as Interaction Designer at a software company in Copenhagen.

comment How to indicate hierarchy from left sidebar list -> horizontal top tabs
You're right, a treeview is familiar to most people. However, the interaction/navigation quickly becomes fiddly with expanding and collapsing back and forth. Furthermore, I believe it would be overkill in this situation with only to overall levels, Items and Dimensions.

Nice idea and mockup! A challenge is, though, that the list of Items may grow to the extent that a vertical scrollbar appears on the right thus visually "detaching" the selected Item from the tab space on the right. However, using a bit of padding to the overall tabs container and applying the same background color to that as to the selected Item might do the trick.

comment Pros & Cons? - Single dropdown VS double dropdown VS multi level dropdown
What is the context? Desktop app, web app, touch app? What is the user population like - how familiar are they with the categories? What are the typical use cases?

comment Discovering new features
While something like "84% of visitors turn off the lights when they leave the room" is an interesting approach in existing m/hotels, a more effective way for saving power in new m/hotels is to have a socket for the room key card controlling the room's main switch. :)

comment Context menu with non-clickable subheaders?
Thank you for the example and perspective! As you note, it depends on the number of hidden items which may be as large as 15 or so. This could prove to be too many to provide a quick overview - but that would constitute a problem on a second level menu as well. Here a prominent placement of "(Show) All" is a way of circumventing such an issue.
