Triads as a Means for Dialogue about Emotional Values in Textile Design

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportKonferenceartikel i proceedingpeer review


In recent years the challenges for the textile industry have changed because of technological development and outsourcing. Present paper reports on a research project concerned with emotional values in textile design and how the designer can actively involve and empathise with end-users and other stakeholders in the design process. Exploratory approaches using the triadic difference are proposed as a means for dialogue about emotional values. The triadic difference and how it influences the dialogue are demonstrated through cases and research literature. Hence cases and research literature exemplify how working with the triadic difference enables various stakeholders to express personal experiences concerning emotional values.
