Monday's unanswerable question:

So, what exactly is design?!




What do successful designs have in common?

Well...

the whole thing is immediately clear.
Usually there’s no fake in form or material (”Ehrlichkeit”).
It is often a reduction of somewhat existing.
And it has an attractive character:
It’s friendly, modest, elegant, funny or sophisticated...
It works. --- Always? A least, it should.
It’s dealing with the world in some way:
So it’s a reaction on new tecniques, chances in social life...
And it depends not only on the object itself, if we like it or not...

Anything else? Hmmm.
