thanks chinor1z...i went to the moma store once. its definately important to see these things in actuality-texture/ scale to oneself--basically just interacting with the piece. please post any more suggestions if you can...

also i'd recommend for everyone to check out this interview with halle jongerius from the link lux originally posted...
its under "working methods"

excerpt from the hella interview...

LOUISE "Youíre presumably familiar with the traditional Chinese and Japanese practice of repairing broken pottery with gold laquer. Throwing things away isnít an option, and the defect becomes a thing of beauty in its own right."

it reminds me how martha stewart is so popular...she constantly picks up on customs, traditions we no longer remember and recycles them into the same form or a more contemporary form...

Check out www.kennethcobonpue.com - He's a very good furniture designer. I love the materials he uses and the creativity as well as the history of his designs. The only downside is the price.

He has a link on his site where he shows the stores in the US - prices were around $3000 - $4000.

I posted about it in the interior decor thread, I love that store. It's like a funky playground.

So, does stereo equipment count as industrial design? I am getting these for the house. They are also known as "bose killers."



More info here

(check out the big speakers, which are entirely unaffordable).

Yes, that is industrial design...very much so.

I like the first pic, although that style has been done millions of times....but the second is too large and overwhelming.

Please do. I've always believed industrial design and architecture go hand-in-hand - along with fashion, interior design, and so on.

When there is not enough space.............

Will Alsop's first project in North America
Sharp Center for Design






this is my school, people either hate it or love it
the view from above is amazing and at night there are
spot lights which makes the whole building glow
but the truth is, the interior space is horrible,
the only word to describe it is "awkward"
