  • ThermokioskA qualitative study suggests “valuable roles for interaction design in supporting the everyday expression of subjective comfort experience, and in providing a medium for negotiating and developing the knowledge, competences, meanings, and politics required for effective collective comfort practices… In establishing thermal comfort as an ‘object of concern’, these findings point to interesting potential for sustainability applications: first in engaging occupants and management with alternative approaches to thermal comfort where the energy required is more closely linked to comfort experience; and secondly, in providing a platform for the establishment of new, sustainable practices.”
