The main interest of the industrial designer has become acquiring user’s satisfaction. One example of this interest is studying the cultural environment of the society that users live in. And how the culture would affect user’s usage behavior, acceptance and emotional responses to the product. Cultural values play an essential role in every human life aspect.
