article has investigated on the CISCO IP Phones through an initial collection of all CISCO IP Phone pictures and then categorized according to the series models and the chronicle development chart. The data was used to analyze the development of the external shape with further collation and analysis for screening out the four representative models for the experiment. The study involved a survey, targeted to the Master students of industrial design and designers of external IP phones to extract most distinctive form features from the IP Phone series styles. Results of the survey showed that the contour of the phone body, LCD bezel, navigation buttons and colors were the form features with the most distinctiveness for CISCO IP Phone series. Moreover, the
study interviewed industrial design specialists with practical experiences, consult with them for the structure of CISCO IP Phone style series form. Finally, the study referred to shape grammar to collate the CISCO IP Phones style series with the most distinctiveness in form features and become the reference models for the CISCO series IP Phone form framework.
