Stefano Mitri

Yesterday, we had a lecture from stepfano discussing design possibilities and shifting perspectives on objects and meanings. I really like his definition of design and one i can finally agree on:

"design is not art, design is not poetry
design has to function. It needs a purpose, a brief, a client, someone willing to pay.
we love art, we love poetry, but design is different "

and he is a believer in "form follows function". Ticks lots of boxes!

He also added some interesting comments about designing new chairs as an example. He stated that people don't want or need new chairs, they want new stories. As designers, we invent new lanuages and meanings to our products.
