This ‘emotional’ issue marks the 10th anniversary of the International Design & Emotion Society. In November 1999, the society was established after an event organized in Delft that became known as the first International Conference on Design & Emotion. It was an event that brought together a diverse group of 41 designers, design researchers, and design thinkers to share and discuss their views on the role of emotions in product design.
