Project Background

Project Designing For Specific Users, is a project for Industrial Design Engineer students, in this project each group is paired up with a case owner who has a disability. The main objective of the project is to design a product that helps improve the daily life of the case owner. This design process should involve co-design methods since the case owner should have an influence on the design and is entitled as co-designer as well. Throughout the project several lectures were given to support the students with their co-design process.
