The goal of this project is to design a Product Service System for Océ, to connect their newly invented elevated printing technology to the interior decoration field. This is achieved using the user-centered design approach. The process consists of three major phases; setting the scene (literature research and interview with people), conceptualization and validation. ‘Setting the scene’ phase starts with an overview of the current business portfolio of Océ and technical aspects of elevated printing technology. Then it describes how customization is the trendy topic for the interior decoration field by showing market growth. Thereafter, this phase also shows the analysis of stakeholder interviews, mainly focused on interior designers’ workflow and their idea generation process.These insights are helpful to identify what is currently lacking in order to promote the use of elevated printing more. Next, the conceptualization phase illustrates idea sketching and embodiment which is based on all the information I collected in the first phase. Through some brainstorming sessions with colleagues and friends, I made one concept for a product service system which enables interior designers to use as a starter kit for interior decoration customization. It is called, ‘Eiger on the desk’, and it includes four interactions with the following flow; 1)‘ask for print samples through online-library’, 2)‘receive a box with samples and basic information’, 3)‘install customization app with tablet’ 4) order new design via app. At the end of this phase, prototype design was made to test the concept with real interior designers. At final ‘Validation’ phase, evaluation tests with professional interior designers were conducted to get feedback for my prototype. Based on their feedback, I concluded this project with recommendations for further development direction to Océ and possible improvements for product idea as a graduation project.
