Object Experience

In this course, we will explore how the choices of form and material affect our senses and interactions. Perceptual approaches to design consider form as something that affords a sensory-motor experience. We combine such approaches with traditional product design methods such as sketching of object's geometrical form and constructing physical prototypes. We use simple materials such as paper to explore the potential of the three-dimensional forms. You will learn how to study and to design physical objects so that they trigger a sensory experience.
