Tobias’ exploration on how to design object with personality:

“Our personality and behaviour defines who we are and how people perceive us. In many ways, the same thing goes for products, as we humans have a tendency to perceive inanimate objects as having personality, even if they don’t really have one by design. This project was an exploration in how to apply the basic elements of human personality to product design. (…)

In order to make the three traits easier to discuss in relation to product design and behaviours, I decided to build three small everyday objects representing each trait through an added layer of behaviour. I chose three objects that most people know and interact with every day. To put emphasis on the object’s added personality trait, I chose objects that are normally quite passive. ”
