This paper investigates how four perspectives from Object Theatre can enhance interaction design in the early stages of a product design process. We propose these perspectives as a playful approach for designers to gain embodied understanding and perception of objects to enable new design possibilities to emerge. We present a study in which the Object Theatre approach is applied to redesign socially shared everyday products that are located in public places. This project demonstrates how Object Theatre offers a broad perspective form which to explore and present product interactions. In particular, it emphasises the understanding of a product by relating and changing perspectives, and takes into account context of use and diverse social settings.
