The aim of this study is to discuss the basic state of object production. Essentially, objects exist as a result of the act of making. Making occurs through the processes of cognition, conceptualization, and representation. Cognition and conceptualization are dealt with the notion of noesis, which occurs on the foundation of four concepts: the self, matter, form, and aim. A design is formed by the cohesion of these four components. Some practical acts are required to represent this design. However, these practical acts continue the conceptual state of making because they require the knowledge of making. All stages that create objects are developed depending on mental productions; this features the process of poiesis. Poiesis is an act of creating objects simply as a product of our integrative comprehensions. This study involves the redefinition of the concept of making in the context of the intuitional, undefined, and unlimited states of poiesis.

Keywords: Artefact, Noesis, Production of objects, Techne, Conceptualization.
