Abstract

User-product interaction is an emotional experience and products are nowadays being designed to address this emotional experience. Emotion-driven design is however a highly intricate activity, since emotions are idiosyncratic. For the more, the lack of design knowledge in the ‘design for emotion’ field makes such a design task even more complex. This paper presents new design knowledge being developed via an ongoing research project by the name of DemoHS which is aimed at investigating the role of senses as a basis for developing the required ‘design for product-emotion’ support. The DemoHS model of product-emotions, the theory leading to its development and the preliminary results collected during its initial testing are also analysed.
