Abstract:To understand office furniture, it is important to know the history of it, how it developed into what it is now. This is presented in the first part of the Analyses section. In the next part, the actor, Samas Hungaria, the target group and the market with its actors, different pieces of furniture and tendencies are examined. An important conclusion influencing the whole design process was the identification of the target group's diversity. Knowing the demands of the user group, the actor, the law and the tendencies of the national and international market, a list of demands is presented in the second section, the Aspects of design. Further important aspects of design, like anthropologic demands a short examination on modernity and stylishness are also discussed. The list of demands leads to the formulation of the Concepts, created by brainstorming and morphologic schemes. At the end of this section the concepts are tested in the light of the demands as formulated in the previous section and maybe even more importantly, against the taste of the target group, as desribed in the Evaluation subsection. This leads to the fall of many concepts, but also the birth of the final concept, the Center Office furniture family. The members of this family are introduced in the Final Concept section together with details of production and the cost calculation. The Testing and reviews section describes the loading test on the desk of the Center Office, as required by the list of demands. Finally, some recommendations are made for further development in the last section, the Conclusion, based on the results of the tests and reviews.
