INSPIRATION:
Living in the current era of consumption, symbolic consumption has gradually changed our mindset of on-demand consumption, and the functions of products have been obscured by the virtual signs created by capital. The endless pursuit of the sign has accelerated the waste of material. Therefore the work rethought the relationship among signs, functions, and design.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The work consists of four household products, speaker, floor lamp, clock, and fan, which are covered inside the leather. The leather and labels represent the symbolic value of the goods, while the functional components inside the leather deliver the use-value. This design emphasizes the contradiction between sign and function in the product consumption through a destructive interaction to 'cut' the signed cover and liberate the function.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The work covered by leather, functions are hidden inside——the sound is obscured, the light is covered, the time is hidden, the wind is blocked, in order to use the functions, the user needs to cut the leather through destructive interactions and destroy the complete leather the user's thoughts will be aroused during the interaction.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The work have taken the‘Consumption society’ as our research direction and the commodity as the object for our project. The design want to discuss the relationship between symbol, function, and commodity and reflected on the design. Through research the design aim to express the contradiction between symbolic value and use-value of products in the consumer society where signs are proliferating.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult part of this design is the expression of the mindset. Firstly, how to express the idea through the design language? After many times discussion, The use of metaphorical forms of wrapping, highlighting and rupture, and contradictory interactions were confirmed. Secondly, how to shape the leather into the form? This step took many material tests and prototypes before the final form was created.
