Authors: Sebastiano Bagnaraab, Simone Pozzi
Abstract: Our paper discusses the role of human body in the design practice, drawing from cognitive science contributions. we discuss the role of the bodily dimension in design projects starting from Norman’s seminal book on Emotional Design, to then review the most recent research on embodied cognition. We conclude by discussing two implications for design, concerning the role of embodied knowledge and the importance of designing for diversity.
