It’s hard to put sensual impressions into words. A fact, that poses problems to many designers. How are test persons to tell, why they like one surface better than the other? It is because of this problem that Japanese designer and architect Masavo Ave created her “Haptic Dictionary”. Convex forms on surfaces are called “pocco pocco”, their concave counterparts “coppo coppo”. To this day, the Japanese designer, who teaches at Universität der Künste, Berlin, has created forty words.
