ACE is a framework for analysing products. ACE stands for:
What shape is it? What does it resemble? What colour is it?
Is it beautiful? What is the theme?
Why is it that shape? Why is it that colour?
How is it made? What materials are used? Is it strong?
Are the materials cheap or expensive?
Can it be repaired? How many have been made?
Is it mass produced? Is it a one-off?
What is the level of production?
Is it comfortable?
Is it easy to use?
Can everyone use it?
Carlton Bookcase, by Ettore Sottsass, Memphis Design
Bold primary and pastel colours. Sharp, jagged shapes, with a stick man figure standing on the top. Patterns cover hard geometric shapes.
This is a one-off (like all Memphis Design), and is made from cheap materials: chipboard and MDF, covered with plastic laminate. The black triangles help support the whole structure.
Angular book-ends would damage books and triangular shapes would be fairly useless at storing books. Like a lot of Memphis design, this piece is primarily about aesthetics.
