Abstract

The process of design is the subject of many studies in the field of psychology or social science or technologies. Its wealth is based on its complexity within the variant and variations that include during its progress. An investigation on computer-aided integrated design and production using advanced automated tools aims to provide integrated solutions for the design and production of geometrically complex forms merged with machines restrictions that could serve as potential design variations. These variations relies heavily on the use of parametric design modeling that are incompatible with a linear approach. Beyond functionality, comfort, and technology, the objective is to propose a conscious and creative dimension of living, offering an anti-stress formula for the design and daily management of the space. This paper investigates the emotional design impact on products specifically on furniture to evoke emotions in people, suggesting that emotions are at basic importance for the success of a product since they influence product evaluation, purchase decision and product experience of users significantly. To formalize this iterative process, we propose a dynamic model allowing multiple variations on furniture affecting the users emotionally from the very beginning of the interaction at the pre-possession stage to long-term use, giving emphasis on form, color and material. We propose a dynamic model allowing multiple variations on furniture within a conscious and creative dimension of living offering an anti-stress formula for the design and daily management of the space.
