The basic character of a product is centered around the identity of that product, that is, its ability to suggest its purpose and function, and the mode of function through its visual appearance. It can be seen that the basic structure of the form must be respected and maintained as the active core of the final form. It is imperative that the transition from one basic element to another must respect these elements without contrasting them superseding their importance.
The transition between the sub-volumes that comprise a product provides the unifying relationship that combines these separate volumes into a unity of meaning as well as unity of appearance. The transition of one form into the other must ensure that the visual flow must be harmonious and smooth.
• Develop a 3-dimensional form to study the form transition characteristics.
• Select any two geometric forms and examine the visual character of the form as its transforms from one underlying structure into the other.

Form transition, harmony, unity
To understand the volumetric inter-relationship between form and underlying structure; form and unity between the elements - based on working on the selection of any two geometric forms.
