This subject focuses on re-imagining everyday designed objects in ways that thoughtfully reconnects us with our everyday experiences. Students learn how to design objects that are not just 'useful' but that are also intrinsically meaningful both philosophically and emotionally. It is an ideal basis for designers of all levels of experience and disciplinary expertise who want to gain a better understanding of what constitutes meaningful and pleasurable experience with regard to designed objects. Objects ideally touch on multiple discipline areas, including product design, visual communication, fashion and interaction design.
