Abstract [en]

Wood as a material has inherent aesthetic features which, rightly used, give the final product competitive advantage over other materials. The aim of this investigation was to find relevant questions to ask when measuring people's preferences for different looks of wood and to reveal the relationship between the mixture of features in a wood surface and people's attitudes. A total of 344 persons participated in the study judging the look of 16 wood surfaces made of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). Their impressions and feelings were analysed by three multivariate methods; correlation, principal component and partial least squares analysis. The study shows that it is possible to measure people's feelings for different looks of wood surfaces. The results show that there are differences in people's judgements for surfaces with knots and without knots. The results also show that there are about 15 questions needed to detect people's preferences for a wood surface.
