Interior design is an expanding domain that has become more sophisticated owing to the complexity of design problems and interdisciplinary solutions. Interior designers must depend less on traditional thinking and more on design thinking to respond strategically to contemporary design challenges posed by ethical and environmental issues and technological advancements. Design thinking is an approach that can help create solutions to such complex problems and contribute to the strategic development of design concepts. The aim of this study was to highlight the role of design thinking in developing interior design concepts. A literature review was conducted to explore the definition and attributes of design thinking and to propose a design thinking framework for shaping new concepts in interior design. This article discusses the impact of design thinking applications on design concept development within the context of interior design. The study also presents examples of contemporary interior design concepts based on design thinking.
