There are many situations in which people need to move from place to place. But how can they take everything with them? Since the way people interact with their furniture is very fascinating to me, I am calling this “the moving situation.” When people move, they tend to take their furniture with them, however, moving a dining table is very difficult and expensive. As a result, people will either discard or donate it.
I focused my research specifically on the dining table. It was a fascinating journey to study the functionality, aesthetics, ergonomics, and design of this centrepiece of any home environment. People create a special emotional attachment to their dining table which can last for a lifetime due to its usability and pleasure.
