How is a Product inspired by its Context, and can we assert the opposite: how is a Context inspired by a Product? This thesis explores this double condition by identifying the relationship between Product and Context. An investigation will catalogue custom homes of Gesamtkunstwerk (A Total Work of Art) from early 19th century through to the present day. A set of terms and principles will be extracted from the analysis of these homes to understand the methodology of their Architecture and Furniture designs. The thesis project will adapt the principles of Gesamtkunstwerk through the depiction of drawing and craft. A final project proposes a custom home for the up and coming city of Hamilton Ontario while questioning the principles of what unites Product designs and their Context. A synthesis project explores the methods of a Total Work of Art to express a connection between one's surroundings and the ensuring creations.
