Ma2E4 Toolkit

Experiential Characterization of Materials

The Ma2E4 Toolkit aims to support material/design professionals in understanding (1) how people receive a particular material on four different experiential levels: sensorial, interpretive (meanings), affective (emotions), and performative (actions, performances), and (2) how these levels interrelate in the experience of the material. By using the four experiential levels as a foundational structure, the toolkit provides a set of activity cards, which facilitate an agile design research approach.

The Ma2E4 toolkit is available upon request.
