Design view is the basic methodology for designers to observe the world with innovative ideology. What’s more it is also an effective way for casting off traditional view and finding the chance for innovation. In product design area, how to find an innovative way to apply material is always an active topic. And designers all over the world focus on this field for all the time. The key point is that for science and technology they have learned a lot about material and the description of material always follows the science and technology way. But designers can not fully understand that. When they want to apply a kind of material they must find a way to translate science and technology. So in order to solve this problem, in this paper I will discuss how to understand material in a design way and how to apply the characteristics of material in product design. Firstly, I have reviewed the definition of material defined by materialoy. As a result I found that if you apply the design view to observe material, the definition should be wider. Secondly, in this paper I focus on classifying material characteristic not material itself as characteristic is indeed the main object need to pay close attention to by design. At last, this paper clearly announced that to give material interactive features is really important to design and it somehow reveals the essence of design view. Base on this three key points, this paper will show you how to understand material characteristics in a design way.
