With the rich modeling form and deep ideological implication, furniture products have become a sign which reflect the civilization of human society. The material existence and creating behavior of furniture products fully reflect many elements in social phenomenon such aspolitics, economy, art, technology and life ect. The comprehension of furniture is the basis of furniture design.Furniture products, as the results of design, should not only possess usability to meet the realistic necessaries, but also bring people pleasurable experience and spiritual contentment to meet the consumers¡¯ emotional needs. the proposal of study in furniture images is based on the idea that human sensibility is the foundation of design, and customer is the center of technology development, expecting to find more possibilities and innovating approaches. The essence of study in furniture images is to discuss how to understand furniture. This study, based on the theories of Kansei Engineering, morphology, semiology and cognitive psychology, explores and researches the formation, construction and cognitive process of furniture images in detail. At the same time, it also describes furniture images and does quantitative research about it, hoping to provide the theoretical and realistic basis for the research system of furniture sentimental design oriented on image cognition. Therefore, this paper develops around the following five parts:The first part discusses aesthetic category of furniture and its influencing mechanism. Aiming at the furniture aesthetic and combining people¡¯s aesthetic experience and aesthetic demand, it mainly explores the related aesthetic issues from the perspectives of culture, mentality and material etc. Firstly, it analyses the influence of aesthetic thought of ancient China in furniture aesthetic from the perspective of furniture aesthetic; Secondly, it discusses the cultural characteristic and internal mechanism of furniture aesthetic; Finally, it leads to the concept of modern furniture aesthetic and clarifies the characteristics of modern furniture aesthetic in the five aspects of formal beauty, technical beauty, functional beauty, artistic beauty and ecological beauty, confirming the aesthetic category of modern furniture and setting the foundation for the transformation of furniture form element from aesthetic demand.The second part analyses the generative mechanism and hierarchical structure of furniture images. It discusses the generative basis and process of furniture images from the mental and physiological dimensions, focusing on the perception and image issues of furniture, analysing the accesses to the inscape of furniture aesthetic perception and determining the specific connotation of furniture image concept. It also analyses the essential attribute and constitutive relationship of furniture perceptual image in the combination of symbol system theory and the influence of external context in the furniture image. It hopes to determine the hierarchical structure and related content of furniture images from the cognitive and emotional perspectives, clarify the effect of perceptual image element in the furniture aesthetic and direct the perceptual design modern furniture.The third part studies the cognitive mechanism and cognitive pattern of furniture images. It combines the theory of information processing and starts from basic theory of meaning communication to analyse the communication and implementation procedure of furniture image content and discuss the basic mode and fabric element of cognitive behavior of furniture images. It mainly researches the contents and rules of the recognition of morphological characteristics in the cognition of furniture images and proposes the system framework for the cognitive pattern of morphological characteristics of furniture in the basis of feature recognition mechanism. Then, it starts from the mapping relation between image prototype and morphological characteristics to establish descriptive model of furniture morphology facing the images and conducts the cognitive experiment of morphological characteristics of furniture with the study cases of concrete furniture products, discussing the thinking structure of image cognition of furniture and representing the relevant matching relationship between the furniture images and their inscape with the tree structure. Finally, it establishes cognitive concept model of furniture images based on feature matching on the foundation of knowledge processing frame of furniture images.The fourth part is the cognitive experiment and analysis of furniture images. It adopts method of semantic difference and modern statistical analysis technique to conclude the morphological characteristics of furniture which effect users¡¯ psychological feelings and finally obtain people¡¯s psychological cognition for furniture images. The study selects13adjectives about images to conduct cognitive experiment of images about30seat samples, moreover, it conducts clustering analysis and factor analysis about the experimental results. Through semantic experiment and data analysis, it establishes semantic space and cognitive space of images about furniture samples and analyses its main characteristics and basic rules so as to provide reference about furniture images study and perceptual design of modern furniture.The fifth part discusses the formation of aesthetic perception of furniture based on images cognition. To begin with, it analyses the differences between the users and designers about the forming process and content of perceptive images. Then, it analyses the common points and differences of users and designers about the image cognition of furniture by experimental method. On the basis of qualitative analysis, the study further defines the matching relation between the users¡¯ images and designers¡¯ images, establishing the matching model of furniture perceptive images between the users and designers.
