This paper gives an overview of the relevance of the comfort concept, its definitions, boundary conditions, and stakeholders. Current comfort theories are presented and reflected on, both in their applicability and testing methodology. Questionnaires commonly used to study comfort and discomfort are also reviewed. An example of a comfort lab is introduced in its functionality and tools, which can be useful as a benchmark for others studying comfort.
