(pronounced dih-ZYNE for awl)

Aligned with the idea of Universal Design, Design for All is a term used in the European Union [EU]. According to the European Commission, it “encourages manufacturers and service providers to produce new technologies for everyone: technologies that are suitable for the elderly and people with disabilities, as much as the teenage techno wizard.” This idea extends far beyond gadgets and objects to architecture and interior design, where careful planning and details create environments that can be used by a wide range of people having various limitations stemming from physical, mental, or size related issues.
