Why Are We So Obsessive?
Martin Bone and Kara Johnson, both of IDEO, have put together this work which shares their favorite objects and asks readers to get involved. For example, what will archaeologists 500 years from now say about our culture, our products, and our design?
These "experiments" are broken down into 3 sections: Aisthetika (senses); Punk Manufacturing; and Love and Fetish. They're all great sections and will give the reader pause and maybe bring about some reflection on what we do now.
I Miss My Pencil provokes new ways of thinking about the objects that make up and define our lives. Whether a pencil, a knife, a bottle or a cork, this book reminds us that each of these designs have a story. It's a great read for the intellectual in all of us.
