G1. Enchantment Through Retro Product Consumption in a Digital World
This study examines the role of materiality in how consumers are managing the experience of disenchantment, resulting from dematerialized digital consumption practices. We show that consumption of retro products, revivals of outdated technology objects, complements digital consumption, by providing historical atmospheric value, nostalgic time value, and a greater perceived authenticity.
