How Big Data Affects the Design of Urban Furniture: An Approach from the Perspective of Industrial Design
Urban designs and sciences are always in contact with the industrial design with urban furniture being an embodiment of this relation. Due to the changing dynamics of design and technology, there is an invisible relation shift between those disciplines. Industrial design is expanding to interaction, interface and service design, and urban design changing as the management of data created by the city. As a result, two areas are crossing again as data-generating city and data-processing industrial design and at the middle of that: the new urban furniture.
Observing and estimating tendencies on that re-formation and dissolution, require research on progresses of both urban and product design disciplines. This paper shall describe an approach to the relation of information systems and industrial design through urban furniture.
