Tutorial with Hilary French

February 10, 2009

Hilary sees a problem in treating the workstation as an conglomerate of elements influencing/regulating the mental condition of a person using it. She told me that this is a role o an interior designer and an architect. She would like me to think about it as an object in itself, not as something which influences the space of the home interior. Suggested that I should think about the generic function of the desk not how it is perceived by user mentally as a place of work. Her questions are:

– How my former findings inform my brief?

– Why is it designer responsibility to control focus [of a user]?

– Is there a problem that needs solving?

Are there answers in design?
