The use of artificial intelligence in design processes has become highly visible. The utilitarian use of this new technology in design raises questions about the relationship between man and machine and its contribution to the final product. This study, which was carried out specifically for chair design, analyzes the design outputs obtained from Autodesk's Fusion 360 software, and examines how far the generative system can realize the chair design without the contribution of the designer. The contribution of generative design to the design process has been examined in terms of form, material and manufacturing technology. In this context, it reveals that the role of the designer in creating a complex design product cannot be ignored.
