Colour, shape, and material are important in furniture design because the meaning and symbolism of a piece of furniture can influence how it is perceived by the people who interact with it.
We offer advice on the meaningful application of colour, shape, and material in furniture design.
Understanding the semantics of furniture design can help designers create pieces that effectively communicate the intended message and function to the user.
We perform analyses by researching the underlying meaning of the present visual elements in a furniture design. We indicate the emotional message which is aroused at the recipient and analyse the universality of the message. We examine to what extent the existing communication contains the necessary semantic elements to send the aimed message successfully.
Overall, the semantics of furniture design play a crucial role in both the aesthetic and functional aspects of a piece, and it is important for designers to consider these elements in order to create pieces that are both visually appealing and functional.
