Product Design As a Cue For the Performance Quality of Products: an Exploration Into the Value of Visual and Haptic Characteristics

This research explores the visual and haptic characteristics in product design that consumers use for their perceptions of a product’s performance quality. The results of in-depth interviews demonstrate that consumers use attractiveness, symbolic associations, size, weight, ergonomics, material, and the haptic quality of components to form performance quality perceptions.
