  • "The tendency of an object to deteriorate because of built-in instabilities. The object may have materials that are inherently unstable (such as leather that cracks with age) or materials that are incompatible with each other (such as brass tacks on a leather chair seat), or its design is structurally unstable (such as a chair with too-delicate legs)."
