As a witness to the development of society and a carrier of human civilization,thefurniture’s development trend is increasingly becoming more diverse, after suffering theimpact of design thoughts which was ups and downs over the past century. Diversification isarisen from the individual needs,and the flood of needs inevitably catalyze a large number oflackluster furniture design, which result in many phenomena frequently, such as wastingresources, polluting environment, and so on. The real reason why this phenomenon exits isthat there are serious disharmonious factors in the source of the design, either the absence ofthinking for the purpose and method, or the abnormal development of design which is causedby the result of thinking. Since the reform and opening up, more than thirty years has beenpast, and our economy is developing at a high-speed. However, the whole society has no ideasevolved to respond this development and can withstand scrutiny. Of course, it also gets littleeffect in design. This article is based on this reality to present some ideas for theneo-modernism appearance view of furniture design. The main contents and conclusions areas follows:(1) It pointed out the important factors which affected the convey between morphologyand semantics from the classification of product and the communication of semantic function.The factors, which Must be taken into account when the designer constructs a correctappearance view, include designer, motivation of user and the use context. A good productform is usually based on a scientific and rational appearance view, so it is important toconstruct the appearance view.(2) For the field of furniture design, the history of appearance view has much relationshipwith architectural design. It takes architectural design form as reference to preliminaryanalyze the development of appearance view of furniture design. From the systematic designideas of generalized architecture, it also summed up the integration ideas of contemporaryfurniture, which includes the living&working style and multidisciplinary electromechanicalintegration design. And it summed up that the two aspects which were contained by thesystematic and Integrated design ideas, had such relationships as external and internal, macroand micro, premise and security, and so on. (3) Appearance view belongs to the scope of designer’s ideology, and it is obviouslyaffected by rationality and irrationality values in philosophy. Therefore, on the base ofinterpreting the past several appearance view from the angle of rational and irrational thinkingand analyzing the different methods of Chinese and Western medicine, it preliminary gets theconclusion: irrational thinking plays a systematic and decisive role throughout the wholeprocess of design, while rational thinking which will eventually has to gradually move closerto the irrational thinking, is an necessary means to protect the design carried out smoothly.(4) Consumer, who is called user, is the object of designers. Therefore, locking the targetuser and study their lifestyle to fully tap the demand factors hidden behind the lifestyle is thepivotal premise of user-friendly design. The study found that demands contained two aspectslike explicit and implicit. Different individuals and groups had different demands, wererelative and could be transformed into each other. However, it didn’t mean to meet theendless needs, which should be limited appropriately. Through re-examining the needs, itclassified the neo-modernism appearance view of furniture design into two categories, whichwere purpose and manner. The former determined the direction of design, while the latterprovided the ultimate technical support for the form.(5)The product design, which focused too much on theory and history in the past,ignored the important role, which was so-called design criticism. From study on relatedconcepts of design criticism, it summed up that the process of constructing theneo-modernism appearance view just like a criticism process, which was not only an urge tothe designer’s value, but also a constraints and filtering to the user’s consumption view.(6) It preliminary proposed the neo-modernism appearance view of furniture design andgave a simple description for the three form of designer values in design criticism withspecific furniture design case.Basing on two theories such as design trend of globalization and non-material design,this article explored and proposed the neo-modernism appearance view of furniture design, inorder to provide a reference for the development of furniture design.
