Title:

Cross-Cultural Product Design: Understanding People from Different Cultural Backgrounds

Author:

de Leur, K., Diehl, J.C. & H. Christiaans

Abstract:

In this paper, a first overview will be presented of cross-cultural studies within the area of people-product interaction. While most cultural studies have been conducted so far by researchers from the social sciences and cultural history, studies into the material culture is nowadays the playground of design researchers as well. Because of the relatively new area of research, this overview shows a rather fragmented picture. The conclusion is that cooperation between different disciplines is a must.
