For many design students, the subjects of their investigations are mainly three-dimensional. We differentiate between basic geometric forms and natural forms. Our exploratory spirits then develop form patterns that are positioned between these two extreme poles. The quality of a form or composition depends on the highest degree of order and a clear statement regarding its life-like plasticity. However, this should not be equated with a simple imitation of nature. It is only when the representation of life forms becomes a spiritual-design achievement that we succeed in rendering visible the vital forces of growth and transience. In this way, this basic subject can be described using the perception-related terms of form and nature.
