  1. 1. The science of imagining solutions design becoming conscious of itself through design

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University, Umeå Institute of Design

    Author : Søren Rosenbak; Johan Redström; Carl DiSalvo; Andrew Morrisson; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; design; pataphysics; possibility; imaginaries; imagination; the artificial; critical practice; critical design; speculative design; design fiction; participatory design; smart cities; lies; metadata; surveillance; failures; research through design; constructive design research; practice-based design research; programmatic research; epiphenomenology; quantum poetics; design; design; industridesign; industrial design;

    Abstract : This dissertation addresses a paradox in design: we currently live in a day and age that is fundamentally conditioned by artifice on all scales, and principled by a deep sense of contingency and possibility. In this world, anything could always be something else. READ MORE

  2. 2. Opening Up Design Engaging the Layperson in the Design of Everyday Products

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Guido Hermans; Erik Stolterman; Ron Wakkary; [2015]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; democratisation of design; toolkits; 3D printing; layperson participation; post-phenomenology; research through design; design; design;

    Abstract : This dissertation in industrial design focuses on the gap between the context of design and the context of use. It aims to open up design to the layperson and investigate an active role for the layperson in the design of everyday products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design for Service: A framework for articulating designers’ contribution as interpreter of users’ experience

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Katarina Wetter Edman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Design for Service; design practice; service logic; service design; user involvement user centered design; materialization; narrative; experience;

    Abstract : During the past approximately 15 years designers have paid increasing attention to service and changes in our society, resulting in a new design discipline – service design. In parallel, designers’ contributions to service development and innovation have been brought forward, often emphasizing designers’ capability of involving users, acting in and through multidisciplinary teams and using visualization skills in these situations.

  4. 4. Devices. On Hospitality, Hostility and Design

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Martin Avila; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Device; hospitality; hostility; design; languaging; accident; ecology; symbiosis; autopoiesis; umwelt;

    Abstract : This thesis studies and speculates upon the interrelations of artefacts with human and nonhuman agents. These interrelations form assemblages, some of which have emergent properties, becoming manifestations of processes that we cannot fully control or understand. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Process Approach to Robust Design in Early Engineering Design Phases

    University dissertation from Dept. of Machine Design, Lund Institute of Technology, P.O. Box 118, S-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Peder Andersson; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; design principles; error transmission; design methodology; product development; design for quality; mechanical engineering; design process; conceptual design; Robust design; system design; parameter design; Taguchi; Mechanical engineering; hydraulics; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; Maskinteknik; hydraulik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik;

    Abstract : The activity of robust design of mechanical products and how it can be accomplished in pre-prototype design phases, is discussed in this thesis. It is advocated that to be fully efficient and effective optimization of product robustness should commence already in the conceptual design phase. READ MORE
