Mapping a multi-sensory identity territory at the early design stage
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
This article presents a kansei design methodology. It is placed at the very beginning of the design process and aims to influence the following steps in order to improve the user's understanding and experiencing of the designed product. The experimentation combines in a subtle way the design thinking approach of learning by doing and the kansei engineering quantitative approach. The research presented is based on the results of a previous study that defined the semantic and emotional scope of future hybrid cars for European using visual stimuli. This kansei design methodology creates and assesses multi-sensory atmospheres is order to provide tangible direction composed of vision, touch, hearing and smell stimuli. From the cognitive and affective responses of the 42 participants we were able to detail 3 directions for future cars interiors that aim to enrich the styling design briefs and to influence the design strategies such as the management of the different grades. The research presented here was supported by the Kansei Design department from Toyota Motor Europe (TME-KD). This collaboration also brought an industrial context to it.

BOUCHARD, Carole; GENTNER, Alexandre; ESQUIVEL, Daniel (Simon Schütte, 2014)Designer’s expertise refers to the scientific fields of emotional design and kansei information. This paper aims to answer to a scientific major issue which is, how to formalize designer’s knowledge, rules, skills into ...
GENTNER, Alexandre; BOUCHARD, Carole; FAVART, Carole (Japanese Society Of Kansei Engineering, 2015)In this article, twenty seven experience centered industrial design projects leading to kansei representatins were analysed. Information was gathered from interviews with former project team members and from an analysis ...
BOUCHARD, Carole; BRISSAUD, Daniel; AOUSSAT, Améziane (King Mongkut's University of Technology North Bangkok, 2010)The use of day-to-day life artifacts is a key phase in the lifecycle of products. Indeed it has a great impact on our environment. User centered methods are not yet taken into account in eco-design approaches. These methods ...
BOUCHARD, Carole; CAMOUS, Roger; AOUSSAT, Améziane (Inderscience, 2005)This paper aims to show the key role of the intermediate representations (IR) in the design process and especially in the car design process. For a better understanding of the concept of design, which is by nature conceptual, ...
User experienced dimensions in product design : a consolidation of what academic researchers know and what design practitioners do BLANCHY, Kerstin; BOUCHARD, Carole; BONNARDEL, Nathalie; LOCKNER, Damien; AOUSSAT, Améziane (Inderscience, 2015)Experience has become the new paradigm of product design. Designers seek to anticipate emotions or associations a user might have when in contact with their design. The factors that influence human product perception are ...
