Exploration of Materiality at NTU ADM Portfolio

Materiality is of the material’s nature and informs not only the physicality, but also an archetypical embodiment of an object originating from materials’ true nature; what impression does the material convey. For example, the feeling of warmth and invitation from that of a wooden chair to the user while a plastic chair may feel cold and unattractive. Throughout the history of product design, many design philosophies and approaches have been developed into solutions, translating materials into actual product. With this in mind, this research is to emphasise design methodology and circumspect design process with the idea of materiality. How does the use of materials in design process convey their presence within the finished product?
