In Design We Trust
A year ago three students from the Köln International School of Design, sought to test (presumably with tongue in cheek) the design viability of a shiny black cube.
They asked product, graphic and architectural designers to critically assess the cube to ascertain how serious or not the “critics” would be when faced with whether to explain or explain-away the object.
The sessions with Graphic Design guru Stefan Sagmeister, Industrial Design god Dieter Rams, Studiodada founder Marco Piva, Italian designer Massimo losa Ghini, German design theoretician Michael Erlhoff and Graphic Designer Ruedi Baur were video taped and presented at a Parsons School of Design exhibition in New York City.
