Today we looked at how to represent glass in sketches; show something inside the glass, show its refractive effect, its shadow and glossy surface. Then we started discussing current designers; who comes to mind. Just a few from students:
Apple; Jonny Ive
David Kelly IDEO/Stanford D-school
Martha Stewart and Jonny Ive are already in my plan. Maybe add the others next year. Today we looked at the work of Phillipe Starck, and talked about his astonishing statements where
he argues that the concepts of design and art are a luxury that should be reserved for peaceful times; not now (Iraq war troop surge when he made the comment). He says he is embarrassed to be a designer.
