User Friendly Design

The concept of user friendly or Universal Design, a term coined by the late Ronald Mace, is to make products, services and the built environment “aesthetic and usable to the greatest extent possible by everyone, regardless of their age, ability, or status in life.”

This concept is used to describe architecture, interior and product design, information provision and technology.
