  1. 1. Design Syntactics: A Functional Approach to Visual Product Form Theory, Models, and Methods

    Author : Anders Warell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; product semantics; engineering design; industrial design; product form; design methodology; visual design aesthetics; design syntactics; functionality; interdisciplinary design; form design development;

    Abstract : In line with the increasing importance of high quality appearance and aesthetic appeal in the design of consumer products, there is a growing need for enhanced understanding and ability to handle visual product form in industrial product development. In an approach for meeting that need, this thesis concerns the nature and development of visual design aesthetics in product form design. READ MORE

  2. 2. Body movement as material : Designing temporal expressions

    Author : Linnea Bågander; Clemens Thornquist; Lise Amy Hansen; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Design; body; body as material; fashion design; performing arts; temporal form; practice-led research; design methods; motion design; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : Movement and temporal qualities have a significant effect on design expressions. However, in the design of dress these are often overlooked, and the static form of a positioned body is considered to be the main driver of design. This work explores the expressions of the body in motion, engaged in the interaction constituted by wearing. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the other side of change : Exploring the role that design can play in retaining sustainable doings

    Author : Chu Wanjun; Renee Wever; Wiktoria Glad; Oskar Rexfelt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Design for sustainable behavior; Behavior retention; Behavior change; Sustainable design; Context change; Activity theory;

    Abstract : The world keeps changing more rapidly. Induced by context change disruptions such as individual life-course changes and macro socio-economical events, the way people carry out their everyday life doings is also undergoing a dynamic transition process, which may open up windows of opportunity for design to transit people’s behavior in a more sustainable direction.

  4. 4. Changeability as a quality in textile design

    Author : Riikka Talman; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : The tendency to wear out and change is inherent in most materials, but – aside from a few exceptions – has been considered to be undesirable by both the industry and consumers. The work presented in this licentiate thesis suggests that, due to change in some form being an inherent property of textiles, it may be viable to look for alternative ways of designing and perceiving textiles that accept change as one of their qualities.

  5. 5. Simulator-Based Design : Methodology and vehicle display application

    Author : Torbjörn Alm; Kjell Ohlsson; Martin Helander; Peter Hancock; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Simulator-Based Design SBD ; Human-in-the-loop simulators; Virtual prototyping; In-vehicle systems; Human-machine interaction HMI ; 3D situation displays; Adaptive interfaces; Work sciences and ergonomics; Arbetsvetenskap och ergonomi;

    Abstract : Human-in-the-loop simulators have long been used in the research community as well as in industry. The aviation field has been the pioneers in the use of simulators for design purposes. In contrast, corresponding activities in the automotive area have been less widespread. READ MORE
