Abstract

This paper describes the principles, methods and strategies for the design of everyday objects that embody data-or Data Objects. The work presented in the paper connects the fields of industrial design and data physicalisation to introduce the concept of using data as a design material. To support the creative synthesis of Data Objects the paper provides a literature review, methods and guidance on the creation of Data Objects alongside examples-and possible opportunities, challenges, and future scenarios-for the practice, use and the study of Data Objects.
