The man has a natural aptitude for the involvement with organic forms which are harmonious to the sight and the touch and which are intimately connected to his needs. The emotion transmitted by an object, results from its character and its contents. Formally, it must be assumed as an organism that under a seductive texture, brightness or colour is a vertebrate structure , rich in tensions of strength and balance that will definitively contribute for its general harmony. It´s important to feel the object's anatomy, its strength and its sensuality.
