Designers’ free ideas and creativity start the new and the design turns our environment into a background of free life.
Designers value the act of use more than the act of making. Creative acts that focus on principles and phenomena are responsible for using various creativity by thinking and analyzing when solving problems of space and situation, human living environment, and cultural phenomena. Designers must create new value and be able to present future possibilities.
We look forward to the development of a more realistic and value-oriented production system that considers culture and environment. Small differences made by small business owners make our everyday life a better environment. Products have been standardized as they undergo a process of shifting production methods from a single item to a large quantity. The standard took root as a form representing production, and this absolute function was based on the encounter of design and machine. Small business owners did not hesitate to change into a unique structure and pattern in a relative and ideal way in a situation surrounded by the problems of mass production indiscriminately scattering functionally similar products in order to satisfy individual needs and well-being beyond the desires of society. We look forward to the development of a more realistic and value-oriented production system that considers culture and environment.
