Design means more than the translation of the word “creation” or “deliberate creation“. Design infiltrates reality with plans and concepts and with the motivation to change, form and improve it. Therefore, the “formed” products do not only symbolize constructive or aesthetic quality, they also serve as the expression of a certain period, an epoch. Design deals with unsatisfied needs, arouses desires, it serves functions, plays on “aesthetics”: thus every period has its unique shape.
