Universal design
Universal Design is an approach to the design of all products and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.
Although the academic and broadsheet worlds still tend to refer to ‘the elderly’ and ‘the disabled’, as if they form distinct groups outside the mainstream of society, there is a growing trend to recognise age and disability as something we will all experience, and therefore part of a normal lifecourse.

From COLEMAN, Roger; LEBBON, Cherie; CLARKSON, John; KEATES, Simeon, Inclusive design, Berlin, Sperling, 2003
Objects or systems which can reduce physiological effort
General need: fill the gap between
the increasing world complexity and limitation perception capabilities
Elderly people as a resource
for the whole community
Add something more (or something less) to the objects
to make them suitable for every kind of people

Mission
“However, it is now apparent that the ‘universal types’ of much 20° century
design failed those on the margins of society – especially as assumptions
about what is ‘average’ or ‘normal’ have been too often
based on the stereotype of the young, fit, white, affluent male.
