Definition
Functional criteria
---How well the layout support human activities
 Visual criteria
--- concern the perception of the layout as a visual
composition

Clearance
A = {(1, 0), (0, 1), (0, −1)}
 B = {(0, 0), (1, 1), (1, −1)}
 A + B = {(1, 0), (2, 1), (2, −1), (0, 1)
(1, 2), (1, 0), (0, −1), (1, 0), (1, −2)}

Clearance
Many furniture items need open space around them
Circulation
Circulation
--An effective furniture layout must support circulation
through the room and access to all of the furniture.

Circulation
Pairwise relationships

Human physiology affects how objects should be
positioned with respect to each other.
Pairwise relationships
Pairwise relationships
Conversation

the seats within a conversation area should be
roughly four to eight feet apart
Conversation
Balance


The principle is to place the mean of the distribution
of visualweight at the center of the composition. The
visual weight of an element is its perceptual
saliency.
A common assumption is that larger objects carry
more visual weight.
Balance
Alignment

In furniture arrangement, alignment primarily
concerns the orientation of the furniture items
relative to each other and to the walls of the room.
Alignment
Emphasis

It is generally desirable to have a dominant focal
point in the interior, so that the eye can rest without
suffering competing demands for visual attention.
Emphasis
