Marco van Hout, who manages the blog Design & Emotion, just published an interview with Pieter Desmet, the author of the book “Designing Emotions”, about product design and emotions.
Here is Marco’s introduction to the interview:
“Dr. Pieter Desmet is an assistant professor at the Department of Industrial Designof the Delft University of Technology. His background is in industrial design, and his research for his PhD degree focussed on emotional product experience. His award winning research has been published in several journals and presented at international platforms. Pieter’s dissertation “Designing Emotions” is one that can be found on the desks of many (designers) and also for me was one of the first real encounters with this very interesting topic. I would like to suggest everybody to order this book, read it and realise that this is the best starting point you could have wished for. Pieter has done a fantastic job in summarising the complex and transforming it into the understandable. He has used his product emotion measurement tool PrEmo to help companies understand the emotional impact of their products and is a frequently invited speaker.”
