Form refers to objects that are three-dimensional in nature. A form has: height, width and depth. Two dimensional form has width and height. It can also create the illusion of three dimension objects.

Geometric forms are those which relate to named regular shapes, however designed form can be an irregular shape or form. Form defines an object within space or imply space. Our perception of a shape or form depends on the angle of view-point and the space around the form as a positive or negative space.

Colour, shape, texture and graduation can define the form of an object.

Ergonomics, function, aesthetics and emotional design are considered when approaching form in furniture design .
