Product Design – Pek Shun Ping

Exploration of Materiality


Project Description

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?

Shun Ping is interested in all facets of design and does not adopt a single style. He hopes to be able to deliver his designs through an amalgamation of experiences. Currently, he is especially keen in the idea of materiality where design goes beyond form and function, how material quality can be translated or related through designs.
