DESIGN AESTHETIC, FUNCTIONAL ANALYSING, REFINING, INTERACTING CHANGED BY DIFFERENT NEEDS INTERIOR

Design requires a good balance between aesthetics and function. It involves considerable search and analysis, rethought and refinement, interaction and communication. It is a spiritual act of creativity and innovation. It creates a healthier, happier and more aesthetical environment for human beings. It is often changing to meet the needs of users. Especially for interior design, it is a process that provides clients with a set of aesthetically pleasing and efficient solutions for a better use of the space. Interior designers ought to adopt a unique proposal, tailor to the individual needs and preferences of the client to improve the user experience. Good design also should create a harmonious relationship among the people, nature and society. For me, Design, has a strong enthusiasm and an approach of pursuing superior life quaility. It’s an indispensable responsibility for our young generation to make the world better.
