  • Department of Computer Science
Squeeze is a multi-person, flexible and interactive furniture that allows for collective and playful exploration of the family history among co-located people in homes. It is designed to explore how we can use digital technology to create settings where co-located family members can collectively and actively engage in playful activities as part of their everyday lives at home. It is argued that this is for the most part an unexplored design space, which is awaiting the interest of the CHI community. Our work has both a strategic and theoretical outset. It is designed from a strategic point to open up the design space for digital domestic technology emphasizing the potential in designing for playful experiences among co-located family members. Secondly, it is designed from a theoretical perspective, namely that of designing for playfulness and aesthetics of interaction.
