RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The form, functionality and aesthetics of this two-seater couch were carefully considered and designed; it was important to the designer that the user can appreciate the final product in its entirety, as well as each individual component. Material and colour choices were made carefully with consideration for compatibility. Depending on each component's quality and colour tone, other elements were adjusted or changed to achieve a strong harmony of all features.

CHALLENGE:
The design brief required the designer to explore and utilise the design process stages to develop a commercial product. The design process explored and investigated the notion of the Australian Design Identity - does it exist? The brief was to design a piece of contemporary furniture or a 3D object reflecting our human and material responses to our environment, culture, values and needs. The final product had to be an expression of the designer’s ideas and approach to design in response to this question.
