I think it’s more tackling problems that don’t need tackling, like his stupid boot-drawer which has always bugged me:
Also Starck’s juicer which I mentioned earlier. I tried to use one back when I was studying Industrial Design and it was a horrible nightmare. Does not juice.
That being said, I do apreciate a nice piece of aesthetic design, even when it exceeds the practicle nature of the object. Marc newsons Lockhead lounge wasn’t a bad piece of work. I guess I just don’t dig on his style enough to see past the wank.
And he seems to have made a career out of his fantasy wank. I don’t know if it’s really helping to tackle the issues that I.D. really could.
Don’t worry mate, I’m just jelly.
