Abstract:Use and the value thereof are implicit in the design discourse and therefore rarely explicitly spoken of, although they are at the core of design practice. With the recent turn to a service dominant logic perspective, the service marketing discourse opens up for understanding value as value-in-use and value-in-context. This paper empirically explores and describes ways in which professional designers themselves express “value-in-use”. The findings suggest that professional designers do not focus explicitly on value as a standalone concept, but conceptualize value-in-use through contextualization and an extensive use of emotions.
