I went to the Good Design Exhibition (above is the music playing at the exhibit)—huge event honoring the designs of [mostly Japanese] industrial/product designers, architects, graphic designers, etc. It was interesting to see what was awarded the best 100 designs. Some designs were necessary progressions of design, others were just aesthetic updates. Many of the designs were very clever approaches to existing systems, rather than redefining standards and systems or pushing limits and boundaries—which I have found of late interests me more.
