A Definition of Industrial Design?

The following is the conclusion of an essay on finding an appropriate definition of Industrial Design written by Gadi Amit.

"We've got a lot of ingredients in this soup...Form, function, desirability, manufacturability, affordability, cultural reference, and so on. But our fragile profession might do well to stand on the two legs it was born with: Design that is Industrial. ID is a synthesis of the visual, emotional, functional and cultural (or a way to ceate an object of desire equipped with a sense of mission) long as you can repeatedly put it in a can and ship it at a price you would pay for yourself."
