Transformation: Mutable Design Conforms to a Variable Life

A product that fulfills a variety of needs is satisfying and less prone to obsolescence. Using transformable design, products can better accommodate various tasks and circumstances, often performing more specifically and therefore more reliably. This thesis examines shape-shifting design, its benefits, and its drawbacks.
