We design for experience by enabling meaningful and innovative interaction between people, products and context over time.
In the Interaction & Experience Design Research Lab we are interested in research-through-design project and experience evaluation. We design products, services and interactive multimedia artifacts that suggest future scenarios by making them real, tangible and testable. Being a research lab, we do it with a research attitude. We adopt a research-trough-design approach, starting every design process with a research question in mind and producing design outcomes aimed to answer it, envisioning unforeseen possibilities. Then, we are also interested in experience evaluation activities, through a multidisciplinary approach. While setting experimental methods based on designer’s expertise and sensibility, we conduct objective evaluation based on physiological parameters. We work on evaluating experiences with products, video and multimedia artworks with recent technologies.
