Training of the bodily receptivity and the sensibility is more or less absent from the universities’ design education, this is a problem in wellbeing design which is based on the fact that all human senses are stimulated in a positive or varied manner. The communication of the body’s recognition can be supported by using the triangular method, which makes use of the nonverbal language of drawings. The study reveals that design education can learn from the experiences of Billedskolen of restoring body perception and developing the generation of terms that make possible transformation of nonverbal language to verbal language.
