Opening doors at TDV

Don Norman talks about their not being a need for instructions on how to use a day to day object in his book “ Design Of Everyday Things”, in this case it is the door.

Some doors at TDV have a slight flaw in them , they are “Norman Doors”. They need an explanation , signage on how to operate them . The glass door is meant to be pushed for operation and contains a vertical handle.

A video “It’s not you. Bad doors are everywhere.” featuring Don Norman has a very similar door as a case study. It is pretty evident that since there is a vertical handle on the door , one could have a tendency to pull to open the door , yet the required action is push!

A solution to the same could be the door not having handles at all , in this case the only way to open the door would be to push it .

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
