When I watched the documentary on Charles and Ray Eames, inventors of the modernized chair, I was intrigued with how a architect drop out and a painter who has very painted before created something that is used up to today. It wasn’t the chair that got them through the door of their success, but the thought of their design. The way they were able to form a chair that was suited to look like it was made for sitting and how they studied the idea of design. It opened my mind to how I create my art like why I want to create a certain character in a story. Where would it live? Is it a male or female? All the fundamental functions of how things work they way they do will help us to understand form and function.
Form and function is important because it explains the form as to why it may perform the function that it does. When looking at the curves of a chair, perfectly sculpted to show that it looks like an object that you can sit on. This is important with all aspects within design.
