Designing For Inclusion Rather Than Exclusion
Design constitutes a significant dimension in contemporary Western consumption societies. The design practice is important as it implicitly determines consumers’ ability to create a meaningful life. Designers in favor of the ‘philosophy’ of Universal design object to the traditional segregation and stereotyping in design of people who do not fit ‘the norm’, such as children, elderly, and disabled. However, Universal design is not intended as niche design but to broaden mainstream design. Based on interviews with an interpretive approach done within the design field, designers’ view of consumers in relation to Universal design is discussed.
