Materials have always been an important consideration for hotel furniture companies in product design for a long time, which is the result of both the supply side and the consumption side. The importance of materials is unquestionable, but the use of materials as a basis for excessively weight-oriented furniture design and purchase is disturbing. This phenomenon violates the scientific nature of furniture design and controls the healthy development of furniture design.
Furniture is for used and aesthetic, its essence is to meet the needs of life with its function, to meet people's spiritual needs with its aesthetic value. Many people only judge the value of the material according to its preciousness and thickness, which makes the furniture design fall into a vulgar quagmire. This not only seriously deviates from the social responsibility of sustainable development, but it run will also seriously restrict the development of the furniture industry in the long. In the end, consumers will also suffer from the loss of choice for practical and beautiful furniture.
The reason for this status quo on the supply side is that it is convenient to manufacture, because the processing means, equipment and procedures are completely different for different materials, and the factory is basically established according to the processing requirements of the materials. Therefore, when producing a furniture, it is intentionally or unintentionally based on its own processing capability, rather than considering the actual effect of the terminal. This is a typical manufacturing thinking, and it has become increasingly unable to adapt to the needs of market development. On the consumer side, customers tend to buy valuable materials and heavy weights. However, is it really good to have a lot of thick arms and thick legs at home? If the design of the furniture itself is not aesthetic or poorly made, is it so interesting to have so much rough material? Is it really worth the money if remove those materials?
Some people will also recognize the value of a certain material in the current market price, which is also a misunderstanding, because this market has always been dynamic, the basis of change is derived from supply and demand, price and performance can not be completely number. For example, if the price of a certain kind of wood may be relatively low for a while, the enterprise will use it to seek the advantage of cost performance. If the actual sales advantage is obtained, then other companies will follow up, and the price will be raised. Then lose its price advantage. At this point, some companies will turn to other materials, and after a period of time, the price of the original material is likely to come down.
The combination of the main material and the auxiliary material usually used by the hotel furniture companies is scientific, that is, the facing component uses a better material, and the internal invisible part can appropriately lower the use level without affecting the basic performance, we do not encourage The same material is used from the inside to the outside. Some materials with similar properties should not be too entangled, such as walnut or walnut, which is the cause of many disputes on the market. Enterprises should not emphasize the material in the promotion, and deliberately lead the consumer's vision from the function, design and other aspects to the excessive attention to the material is actually creating trouble for themselves. A brand-name leather bag, even if you use a little better material than LV, but the price can be compared with LV? Over-emphasizing materials is stupid.
The right direction is that the value of the design, manufacturing process, and brand should be much higher than the value of the material itself, not the other way around. Even precious materials such as mahogany should conform to this rule. Wood, especially rare materials, is a gift from nature to human beings. We must treat them with awe, not to ruin them as we please, and we must not make rare materials into garbage with poor design and rough craftsmanship. .
In fact, the selection of modern furniture is becoming more and more integrated and diversified, and the space for material selection is also growing. Scientific and rational analysis and thinking should be carried out in the design process of furniture according to the design goals, the attributes of various materials and the possible conditions.
