Article Preview

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.
