Abstract

So far, bionic design has mainly been applied to support functional
solutions. In recent times, subjective aspects in product quality become
increasingly important to users, too. Under the aspect of targeting a
sustainable value creation for users, bionic design may also help to
better address users’ subjective needs in product design. Therefore, a
new methodology is presented. Its first step is the numeric and
perception-related investigation of main geometrical criteria in object
shape changes between technical solutions and their bionic models. The
second step is the identification and utilization of impressions
analogies between the two domains. Thus subjective similarities between
the product and its bionic model are examined both in geometrical and in
impressions respect in order to derive implications for the field of
Emotional Bionics. The methodology is explained in detail by applying a
pilot study.
