“Objectified”

I am watching the follow-up by director Gary Hustwit. Objectified like Helvetica gives me much to think about, especially about my own life as a designer.

My favorite quote by designer Karim Rashid is paraphrased thusly:

Out of the million chairs that have been designed in the world, how could there be an uncomfortable chair?

If you haven’t seen it catch it on Netflix or on PBS.

Much more impressive cup: Shamrock Cup

I cannot wait for a cup like this to be mainstream. Imagine how much less wasteful. As a marketer, what a great buzz piece at a tradeshow or around the office. Actually you could put some cool stuff in a container like this.

Found it on PSFK but you can see the real deal on the company’s website.
