Research: creative tools & tangible interactions

Our research focuses on the interaction of humans with machines, and especially on providing powerful creative capacities to all.

About

At User Studio, besides designing awesome service experiences for our clients, we do research about the design of creative tools and tangible interactions.

Smallab is our interaction design lab

Throughout the history of the studio our co-founder Matthieu Savary has cultivated a passion for interaction design (IxD) and our tradition of research & development in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

It's fun, and it brings in a lot of insights about what the future holds and how we can improve our relations to machines and to one another. After all, that's what interaction design is all about: we enjoy turning complicated things into accessible, desirable things, for the majority and for the greater good.

Creative tools

One of our passions has to do with making tools, and giving the chance to non-specialists to realize things they thought were impossible to make by themselves.

Since 2006 – even before User Studio was founded – we've been developing creative tools. Tools for artists and enthusiasts, tools to create & play music, create images, interpret movement. Tools for small kids, tools for big kids.

Tangible interactions

It's very often that there is no better way to design a creative tool than to use tangible interaction principles.

As an example, we've created a now famous controller know as the DIRTI – it's actually more of a category of controllers that we invented from scratch, the Dirty Tangible Interfaces, where the interaction is messy and dirty but also infinitely nuanced and expressive… like the real world.

Collaborate

We're constantly looking for surprising new explorations to conduct & share and extraordinary new partnerships to found. Don't hesitate, contact us.
