Regression Analysis On Material Driven Design Variable: Emotional, Sensorial, Interpretation And Performation Of Thermoplastic Ldpe Waste
Currently Indonesia has become the second largest plastic waste contribution in the world. Saddens by this reality, a research is conducted to recycle plastic bag waste made from LDPE thermoplastic, a kind of plastic that can pliable by heating them over and over. Material driven design (MDD) is an approach in which material become the center point for every design decision. There are four variable ini MDD: sensorial, affective, interpretative and performative. Five best sample from the research are tested to 50 design students. Regression analysis is done to understand the correlation between each variable and how the construct the material experience for the user. The results are analyzed with eviews 10 software and founded that sensorial quality of flexibility and perfomative variable affect emotional variable the most. The more flexbile the more people want to use the material more often and this will create deep emotional bonding with the material. Flexiblility, pattern and transparent are the sensorial qualities that people seek when interacting with the recycled LDPE plastic waste material. This can be useful for design recommendation, to design product with waste material that once perceived as garbage, but see this an alternative material tthat has vast potential application.
