Application of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs to Modern Chinese Furniture
Based on the analysis of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, this study explored the method of product design which takes five levels of human needs as a starting point. By combining with the dual attributes of modern Chinese furniture on industrial product and cultural product, this research proposed a design model of modern Chinese furniture based on hierarchy of needs, which can provide with cross-references to design practice.
