Morphological Chart 00
Form Development

A morphological chart is a diagrammatic method to generate ideas and forms based on function analysis. Method helps designers to explore design solutions and forms in a systematic manner. The chart sets out the complete range of solutions and form alternatives for each sub-function, which is then combined together into a final design and form. The outcomes of this method are more likely to be additive forms. (more…)

Form Typology - Function Based Forms 00
Form Development

Products are shaped based on their pragmatic functions (purpose) and/or their symbolic functions (meaning). Form typology can be grouped under four categories based on form’s relation to its function, which are Additive, Integrative, Integral and Sculptural forms. (more…)

Process Model 00
Form Development

Models are built to test or communicate different aspects of a design or an idea in three-dimension. Based on their testing purpose, models are grouped under three categories; aesthetics (e.g. form, color, material), user interaction (e.g. ergonomics, usability), and technical (e.g. manufacturing, functions).
