Frustration has thus become a natural consequence. Home is the shelter where frustrated souls are comforted (soothed) and confidence re-established. Lighting plays a very important role in such a space. When there is a light in the dark, it is like the lighthouse when we are weary, filled with despair. If this light can give a sense of encouragement, it will soothe our souls and relieve our stress, giving us a cheerful mood.
The aim of this study is to use music with an encouraging sense as a medium to stimulate the inner feeling of people in order to conclude product styles that match the encouraging image, and thereby understand the correlations between music sensitivity and product style. The experiment was designed into 3 stages. Stage 1 is a review of the related literature examining the correlations between music sensitivity and product style. Stage 2 is a survey for selecting lighting and music samples; and the level of encouragement sensitivity of lighting and music samples was clustered with lighting style meeting the encouraging requirements concluded. Stage 3 is an investigation investigating the effect on the product style design with and without music and the effect on the product style design of music with different levels of encouragement to find out lighting style elements meeting the encouragement sensibility with the lighting and music concluded. Results indicate:
1.Most respondents believe that spherical shade, column or cone lamp stand and elliptical lamp socket are better pattern elements matching the encouragement image. The highest mean of the matched pattern combination is “spherical x column x elliptical shape”.
2.Comparison of the sensitivity between respondents without listening to music and respondents listening to music of different levels of encouragement shows that there is significant sensitivity difference between respondents listening to highly encouraging music and respondents without listening to music; thus indicating that listening to highly encouraging music can help people distinguishing the encouragement feeling produced by lighting styles.
3.Comparison of music with different levels of encouragement indicates that highly encouraging music can produce actual sensitivity than medium and lowly encouraging music. As the sensitivity produced by medium and lowly encouraging music is less strong, people are unable to distinguish the difference between them.
4.These results show that the highly encouraging music has the greatest effect on people. Therefore, experts in music-related areas were invited to conclude some characteristics of music. According to the experts, instead of using minor scales, music composed with major scales, with strongly accented rhythms, faster tempi and a large amount of staccato and legato in crescendo is encouraging.
