Proxemic Transitions: Designing Shape-Changing Furniture for Informal Meetings

論文URL:http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=3025453.3025487

論文アブストラクト:The field of Shape-Changing Interfaces explores the qualities of physically dynamic artifacts. At furniture-scale, such artifacts have the potential of changing the ways we collaborate and engage with interiors and physical spaces. Informed by theories of proxemics, empirical studies of informal meetings and design work with shape-changing furniture, we develop the notion of proxemic transitions. We present three design aspects of proxemic transitions: transition speed, stepwise reconfiguration, and radical shifts. The design aspects focus on how to balance between physical and digital transformations in designing for proxemic transitions. Our contribution is three-fold: 1) the notion of proxemic transitions, 2) three design aspects to consider in designing for proxemic transitions, and 3) initial exploration of how these design aspects might generate designs of dynamic furniture. These contributions outline important aspects to consider when designing shape-changing furniture for informal workplace meetings.

日本語のまとめ:

ちょこっとした会議に用いる形状変化するデスク兼スクリーンの提案。設計にはProxemic(接近学)の考え方が用いられており、形状変化の遷移速度・段階的な遷移かどうか・人がミーティングに参加した祭の空間的な順応性の3つについて考慮されてプロトタイプの作成が行われた。
