Hi fellow readers!
(if I got some…. hopefully)
Its been a wile since my last topic in the forum. But this time I’ve been intrigued by th design aspect of designing an object considering all these things:
– The Form,
– The Function,
– The overall design (I know this word has a LOT of meanings all over the world)
– The customer satisfaction!
And I mean from a hobby/amateur woodworker.
So my example case:
My wife’s birthday is next week, and she had one idea to get “something” to a particular space of the house. After a lot of debate she liked one drawing – the first picture.
So I went down stairs and started to make it, like a good husband I am 🙂
But last week,
– I wanted to add tapper legs for the sake of the “looks more delicate/fancy” – but its all recycled pine and it don’t offer the appropriate support for what it supposed to be.
– She like the legs like that, but wanted “something” on the side and on the front – I suggest some round tapper rails (like a broom stick). We both agreed.
– “We” added a little front drawer… (my 1st one – yet to be born)
Today I’m working on the changes.
1 – I know that if we work to ourselves is one thing, but working for a client (even if its the wife) then our work is on a very different championship.
2 – I read a LOT of things about design, from pros to guys like me
3 – Not always we can prototypes of the object for our “customers approve” and after that they can/will change their minds. 🙁
4 – I think that I’m missing something.
So my question to you all: How to balance all those things in a good, reliable, durable object?
Enjoy the learning path...!!
