Affordances is a technical term sometimes hard to grasp, but it’s really quite simple.

Affordances refers

to the relationship

between an object

and a person, and

what the person can do with that object.

A lot of affordances come with an object that you wouldn’t expect.

A well designed

object has a rich

set of affordances.

It can be used in ways

that the designer never

would have imagined.

Affordances is not to be mistaken for what you would want an object to do for you, but instead what an object can do for you.
