I think Harrison posted on Dieter Rams before. He’s badass.
I’m not a designer and I don’t know the first thing about it, but some of you fancy book-learners out there might enjoy this list on Vitsoe.com, as well as the photographs of a few super modern products Rams designed in the last five decades.
Excerpt: [Good design] is nothing trendy that might be out-of-date tomorrow. This is one of the major differences between well-designed products and trivial objects for a waste-producing society. Waste must no longer be tolerated.
Here it is.
Wallpaper just apparently launched a new “TV” section to their website today (although it looks like some of the videos have been up for a while) . The first few videos are from their Design Awards, featuring Stefano Pilati, Kanye West, Mark Newson, and Jean Nouvel. I was hoping for a bit more substance to the pieces, but they are still pretty fun to watch. They are basically a behind the scenes look into the magazine photoshoot with a few words from each guy at the end. It will be interesting to see what comes of the section and there are a few other videos up there including some good stuff with Dieter Rams.
