Embodying of Human-Centered Perspective in Household Basic Appliances Product Design
Traditional critical goals for industrial products design includes five factors. They are utility, appearance, ease of maintenance, low costs and communication. In this paper, puts forth a new perspective, in which considers that embodying of human-centered perspective should be also another critical goal to industrial product besides traditional five critical goals. The paper is aimed at giving rise to the industrial designers to pay more attention to the design principles of ‘Human-Centered’ during their household bisic appliances product design because they are usually ignored by the designers. In the paper, mainly analyzed some household basic appliances products, which are used in every day life of people. The way of study is to analyze some problems in the products design by the examples of the products that are being applied in every day life, but there are some defects. What the analyses mainly concerned is how to embody the principle of “human-centered” in industrial product design. The “green design” and “healthy design” should be put the first place when industrial designers to design industrial products.
