While designers often design the form of table-lamps according to the subjective design concepts, such kind of creation can hardly be collated and analyzed with systemic data. If designers can apply these data during the development of design concepts and thereby affect the user’s efficiency in identifying the features of table-lamp styles, this will help to enhance product identification. However, as there are many factors affecting the user’s identification of the features of table-lamp styles, this study plans to investigate the identification efficiency in terms of the amount of form feature elements and proportion of element quantity of table-lamps on the market.
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect on identification efficiency of the form design elements in table-lamp design with two experiments.
The aim of Experiment 1 is to investigate the visual identification efficiency of the quality of form feature elements and form contours. Independent variables included presentation (grey-scale effect include contours and contours) and element quality level (high and low), where gender is the within-subject-design factor; and table-lamp presentation, element quality level and style are the between-subject factors. Results indicate: element quality has a significant effect on the identification reaction time of participants, when the element quantity is low, the reaction time is faster than it is when the element quantity is high; the reaction time difference in table-lamp presentation is insignificant; however, element quantity has no significant effect on identification accuracy.
The aim of Experiment 2 is to investigate form feature element proportion and the visual identification efficiency of form contours. Independent variables include element proportion level (consistent and inconsistent) and element quantity (4, 5 and 6), where gender is the within-subject-design factor; and element proportion level and element quantity are the between-subject factors. Results indicate: the effect of the element proportion of table-lamp on the identification reaction time of participants is significant; particularly when the proportion is inconsistent, and viewers spend more time on table-lamps with inconsistent element proportion. Also, when there are five elements, the response time is the least, and this is different from the results obtained in Experiment 1. However, neither the element proportion nor the element quantity has a significant effect on the identification correct rate of participants.
This study investigated the identification effect on viewers of element quantity and element proportion in order to provide a supplementary reference for industrial designers to develop design concepts in addition to subjective aesthetic view.
