Ch9. 拆招CMF設計談沒有錢錢也要全力以赴

CMF為Color Material and Finishing,譯為色彩、材質、及表面處理工藝,屬於 工業設計 旗下重要的一環。Unwrap CMF( 彩材拆拆 )將圍繞著這個主題,以淺而易懂的小故事拆解 CMF設計師 的日常。

CMF處理可以說是產品質感的基本要素;對細節的堅持,更是CMF設計師的自我認同。.CMF設計師有多元的職責,其中包括生產製造的跟進,也就是將平面的電腦渲染圖轉換為立體現實產品的重要一環。這個時候,CMF設計師不只身負產線實現的責任,對CMF細節的掌控也是關鍵。

為什麼 宜家 有許多平價產品的質感能勝過其他百貨量販呢?工業設計的外觀造型及CMF的細節處理是重要的精髓。當然,宜家的 商業模式出貨量 等都是供應商積極配合的原因,但不能總是拿 別人錢多別人公司大 作為逃避責任的流氓藉口🤷🏻‍♀️.不妨轉個念頭:雖然錢錢不多,但全力以赴的我看起來超帥der~

會想到寫這篇是因為受到 高師大 林漢裕教授 作品的啟發:一個簡約的漏斗塑膠製品,卻將細節做到完善,這就是CMF的精神,也是對自己作品的尊重。

作為工業材料,塑膠因為價格及可塑性的關係,成為各行業最受歡迎的量產選材之一。正因為塑膠是人造材料,沒有天然材質的底蘊,所以細節質感在塑膠製品上的成敗格外明顯。比如免噴塗塑膠上的咬花、流痕、氣紋、分模線、模具溢膠等,都是微乎其微又能定勝負。

我硬是雞蛋裡挑骨頭,終於在宜家陳列的廚房單品中找了一些 科普案例 。但整體而言,這些都不過是幾十塊的產品(以前在手機行業,留給外觀的CMF預算也不過如此),在有限的預算內, CMF細節並未被鬆散交差。全力以赴之後,就算還是有不完美之處,也至少不留遺憾。

下一次逛宜家或其他量販店的時候,如果看到「好看、有質感」的商品,不妨注意一下它們的細節處理:它們的細節上做了哪些處理,才使得勝於平凡?

CMF treatment is the basic principal of a product quality. The pursue of details is also the self-recognition of being a CMF Designer.

Upon the diverse scope of responsibilities, CMF Designers also need to follow-up throughout manufacturingn trials, which is the step of converting 2D computer-generated rendering into 3D reality. Meanwhile, its duty is not simply manufacturing follow-up, but also includes the attention to CMF details.

Why can IKEA bring price-competitive products that also has a winning quality? Both Industrial Design form factor and treatment of CMF details contribute to the fact.

At any budget, we should always try our best to bring out the highest possible perceived quality.

A work by Professor Hanyu Lin at Kaohsiung Normal University has inspired me to write this post. It is a very simple plastic funnel with every detail being nicely polished. Indeed, this is the spirit of CMF, as well as the respect for one’s own work.

As an industrial material, plastic has become a popular choice because of its price and ease of production. But because it is a man-made material without the essence of natural materials, the flaws on a plastic product is especially obvious. For example, VDI texture, flow mark, parting line, overflow – all of these are tiny little details that can determine the perceived quality.

I had to be super picky to be able to find some tutorial examples from IKEA. But overall, many of these are sold under $10. Within this limited budget, many CMF details are achieved at its highest potential – that happens only if we put all-in efforts.

Next time when you visit IKEA or other stores and see a nice-looking product, try to also look at how its CMF details are treated: what have they done with these details to be perceived above ordinary?
