Human Behaviour

Main content

Innovative product design is strongly connected to the cognitive and behavioral processes of humans. During design new product ideas are found, new solutions are created and various decisions are made by different human stakeholders.  Based on our research, novel workshop concepts are developed and implemented in unconventional think and make spaces. In addition to this, we use modern measurement technologies to investigate user behavior during product application. Data recorded in real application environments allows us to effectively reveal latent user needs and thus to considerably improve user-focused product design.
