Abstract

Indeed, a sustainable product ought to be able to last throughout its expected lifetime not only objectively, but subjectively. The concept of Product Subjective Sustainability (PSjS) is to address ‘a product capability to age emotionally/affectively/aesthetically and last satisfyingly and pleasantly during its expected long/short lifetime’. Using Kansei Engineering approach, in order to approach PSjS experientially, this paper presents the results of an analytical study on the evolution of Iranian users’ Kansei comparatively respecting their short-life and long-life products during the entire lifetimes of these products. The short and long lived product types specified for this research are respectively mobile phone, private passenger car and traditional handicraft.
