Re-thinking Form Follows Function

Scott Summit, Bespoke Innovations

Bespoke Innovations Co-Founder Scott Summit explains how the mantra “form follows function” has been contorted into the idea “form follows mechanical function.” According to Summit, this change has allowed product designers to think they have a free reign to create clunky and purely utilitarian designs. Summit relates how Bespoke works to counter this idea when designing prosthetic legs that possess greater form and artistry.
