Abstract: According to Janlert and Stolterman (1997), people, as well as things, have character- high level attributes that help us understand and relate to them. Every product is built from many variable facets which ultimately give the product its personal and individual character. By stripping the product to its core, we will be able to identify the specific attributes that can alter the character of a product and to generate a scheme of basic design elements for the product. Studies in material culture introduce the concept of characterizing products, which, provides us with a new perspective in viewing and understanding a product. The result of this study will be the generation of scheme of design elements which are adaptive to evolving trends, particularly useful during design research phase to recommend design suggestions for improvement in the design of second generation products.
