Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the conversion of deteriorated postal jacket materials into an applied product. Postal jackets are used by the Thailand Post Co., Ltd, and can be converted into a solid sheet material. In this study, a conceptual framework was used to design a product, enlisting senior experts in materials and production to evaluate 3 design drafts to create a suitable prototype. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze and summarize the obtained data. The results found that an office furniture set design, utilizing the design concept of a flying envelope, a symbol (brand) and a horizon, was deemed a unique decoration for the office of Thailand Post Co., Ltd. This product design had the highest overall suitability ( = 4.71, S.D.= 0.21), with user and executive satisfaction rating the designs aesthetics highest ( = 4.31, S.D. =0.76), followed by structure, function, and identity, respectively.
