Recent technology developments in the field of tabletop display systems have provided new types of user experiences that were unavailable in traditional vertical displays. While substantial amount of work has been done on new technologies and usability tests for a tabletop display system, not much attention was focused on aesthetic design aspect. In this paper, we studied the effect of aesthetic design elements on tabletop display interactions, especially focusing on users' emotional satisfaction and usability. For this purpose, two different tabletop display systems, one aesthetically well designed with 5 selected design elements (color, typography, form, graphic, and sound) and the other not, were tested in an intelligent collaborative environment. The user study showed that an aesthetically well-designed tabletop system not only influenced users' emotional satisfaction but also usability by enhancing the abilities in human perception, and eventually affected overall user experience with the system.
