Creature Comforts is an exercise on the potential of form within our socio-cultural expectations. The process is atypical to standard design methodologies. The signified arrives after the material volume (signifier). In other words: function follows form. It is a very helpful exercise allowing me to address fundamental questions in design aesthetics and reconsider the origins of our needs.
