To want is one thing and to need is another and this is what the designer is obligated to tell the user. To want is a psychological desire, a dream and expectation; however, to need is a satisfaction to the practical function. How to make the balance between the esthetics and practical use is the task for the designer. What we apply is very simple, which is to use the esthetics as base to reflect the life, making the change unconsciously.
After assuring the material for the theme and background wall, considering the material size and defect, which needs to cut and remove, we try different ways of collage to create the contrast to the stone wall and the extensibility of the material itself.
