Fueled by an increasingly interconnected world, the desire for engaging experiences plays a more critical role in the built environment than ever before, particularly at the scale of the interior. Constructed spaces—in their entirety or through the employment of a single product or piece of furniture—can promote social interactions, encourage changes in behavior, shape perceptions of use, or challenge accepted cultural norms.

As a thought starter for designers, this book offers a curated selection of high- and low-tech examples that express timely and timeless concepts. Ranging from a light switch to art installations and fully realized buildings, the projects illuminate psychosocial principles and specific strategies for harnessing the power of design to impact the human experience.
