Design is Dead, Praise Be

Somehow the word “design” has come to mean imprinting the questionable personality of pompous and incoherent scenesters on innocent and previously useful objects. According to Phillippe Starck, who is one of the world leaders in this class of low-key crime, design in that sense is dead. He expresses what seems like genuine remorse, and consequently I think we should be easy on him when the revolution comes.
