The form construction principle comprises (1) the flow of plane of a form, (2) simple form, (3) accent for a form and (4) greatness of volume on a plane. The procedure: 1. The structured concept is constructed based on user requirements. 2. A basic form is designed based on the structured concept, the seventy design items. 3. Abasic form is transformed into a final form using the form construction principles. The color and feel of a material and so on are decided at the same time according to the structured concept.
