Explore the critical importance of quantitative design goals and strategies for determining effective goals.
- [Instructor] Often, the most creative design ideas seem … to emerge fully formed out of the designer's head … from some lyrical inspiration. … Upon closer examination, many of these products … reveal themselves to be laboriously tested, … utterly rational responses … to thoughtfully articulated design requirements. … It is the requirements, or design goals, … that embody the true inspiration. … The Panton Chair appears at first … to be a sculptural aesthetic experimentation. … But if you consider its design objectives, … stackable, resilient, a single part, stable, strong, … made from a single mold, it starts to look … more like an utterly rational response … to the design requirements. … The form of the Panton Chair can be seen … as a rational utilization of new material technologies, … fiber-reinforced plastic, to meet a set … of well-articulated, measurable design goals. … In many ways, its novel form foreshadows the complexity … of form now emerging from the combination … of generative design and additive manufacturing. …
