Abstract

Furniture directly affects users’ emotion, since it forms the overall atmosphere of the space where it is placed. While previous research projects and furniture design practitioners rarely consider the spatial context of furniture, we sought to understand users’ emotional aspect and spatial context of furniture. In this study, we focused on users’ affective responses to visual aesthetic attributes of furniture design. We conducted observations and expert interview sessions in order to find what factors would influence the spatial context. From the initial study, we assumed that the level of “public openness” might influence users’ affective responses and preferences to furniture design. To explore our research question, we conducted in-depth interviews with ten participants who recently engaged in the purchasing process of furniture items. Through the analysis, we found that there is a correlation between the level of public openness of the space and users’ affective responses to furniture design. We explain how such openness affect users’ affective responses to the furniture design.
