Integrated Product Design: an attempted definition

Week 4| Design Thinking in IPD | Spring Semester 2015 | UTS

Inspired by Kees Dorst's lecture this morning, here is my stab at coming up with a comprehensive and future-proof definition of what Integrated Product Design is.

Integrated Product Design
the art & discipline craft of discovering & understanding needs and conceptualizing elements & attributes of objects, services & experiences and combining these into a cohesive unit that can be used to fulfill those needs.
