Abstract

Stress is negatively affecting a large part of society. Knowledge on treating stress is available in the literature even though the phenomenon has yet to be fully explained. Designers could transform these insights into useful products and services that could support people affected by stress. Based on a study of the literature, a model is created called Design for Relaxation. The model is validated using an analysis of the work of design students addressing work related stress. The conclusion is that the model can be used by designers to develop future products and services to counter excessive levels of (work related) stress.
