In this course, we explore how the choices of form and material affect our senses and interactions. Perceptual approaches to design consider form as something that affords a sensory/motor experience. We combine such approaches with traditional product design methods such as sketching of object's geometrical form and constructing physical prototypes. We use simple materials such as paper and foam to explore the potential of the threedimensional forms. Students learn how to study and design physical objects that trigger a sensory experiences.
