Design means more than assigning superficial qualities to things. Industrial design deals with the conception, development and design of industrially manufactured objects.
Industrial design research aims at developing scientifically based knowledge, tools, methods and processes for use in the professional work of the industrial designer. Further, industrial design research shall give a deepened insight in the holistic creation of products from a life cycle perspective, as well as into the relation between people and products´ functional and emotional qualities. Consumer products are important research applications. Other fields of research are design management, innovation management, trend forecasting and analysis as well as industrial design history.
