However, with the quick consumption of resources, appropriation of ready made objects has been involved with product design and exerts the effect for environmental protection. Over the years, such appropriation extends into regular people’s daily life too. Yet there is still relatively little research for this issue; hence this study conducts analysis over the cases of appropriation of industry designers and the public through literature review, case analysis, in-depth interviews and field investigation, with the hope of disclosing the presentations of the appropriation of regular people and designers, and the discrepancy of their interpretations on product semantics.
The results of this study are as follows: 1) The presentations of designers’ appropriation have seven features, and designers usually convey concepts such as sustainability, environmental care, and satire through appropriation, and the exteriors of such products often convey caricature, humor or a protest for tradition; 2) Common users often make temporary appropriation of products without much revising the exteriors or functions of that product. 3) According to the questionnaire results of the common users on product semantics, most of the common users cannot comprehend the designers’ intentions or deeper connotations, such as the respect or mockery for the classics. This result reflects that Taiwan does not pay enough attention on education for art or design.
