Intentionally clever solutions to problems are not "thoughtless acts" in the IDEO sense, and will be removed.

Thank you!

Group Description

This is a group to celebrate Thoughtless Acts as exemplified in Jane Fulton Suri and IDEO's book, Thoughtless Acts?.
Some actions, such as grabbing onto something for balance, are universal and instinctive. Others, such as warming hands on a hot mug or stroking velvet, draw on experiences so deeply embodied that they are almost unconscious. Sill more, such as hanging a jacket to claim a chair, have become spontaneous through habit or social learning. Observing such everyday interactions reveals subtle details about how we relate to the designed and natural world. This is key information and inspiration for design, and a good starting point for any creative initiative.
- Thoughtless Acts?
Feel free to post thought-provoking and design-inspiring Thoughtless Acts that you discover. Please make sure you post a brief description of the act you have captured-- it's not always as obvious as it may seem. If you think your Thoughtless Act is inspiring, submit it to the website below, as well.
