Product design : KNOT + LOOP

The prodect design which is related with ergonomic system. Using of the knot and loop produces joining point and extension of the scale and it deforms even detail of the texture. In real shape, loop was used for the whole basic structure with differentiation of width and thickness, and knot has a function to connect each loop and fix the form. Looping system has two different functions at the same time; it ties the object as a combined and closed solid and also makes a void or interval between the materiality. These properties worked very flexible and ergonomic on the products like shoes, bag, chair, laptop and especially looped surface of the garage was implemented for the movement and mobility. In the surface study the looping system worked not only for the overall movement and main structure but also for the detail of the surface, which applied on each products differently, according to the frequency of moving. In terms of the relation between body and object, shoes, bag and chair mostly were concepted with detailed looping texture.
