AbstractDespite being a promising and lively playground, sound design is not a discipline as solid and established as visual or product design. We believe that the reason is to be found in the lack of design-oriented measurement and evaluation tools. The Eu- ropean project CLOSED (Closing the Loop Of Sound Evalua- tion and Design) aims at providing a functional-aesthetic sound measurement tool that can be profitably used by designers. At one end, this tool is linked with physical attributes of sound- enhanced everyday objects; at the other end it relates to user emotional response. The measurement tool will be made of a set of easy-to-interpret indicators, which will be related to use in natural context, and it will be integrated in the product de- sign process to facilitate the control of sonic aspects of objects, functionalities, and services encountered in everyday settings.
