Confused Confucius

"Does the future of design involve combinations of technology and emotional values?"
"What are the most important needs to design for?"
"Has hybridization created some paradoxes?"

"How do we get back to the essential values of honesty, nature, function, awareness of materials and, not least, a social conscience?"
"How do you make an elegant simplicity that hides the complexity in the overall interface and experience of the product?"
"Does (product) development simply happens too fast for the industry itself to follow?"

"What is mass individualism in a global world?"

You don't have to ponder all day about these questions. Simply visit DDK and read the articles:

Trends from IMM Koeln and an interview with someone who studied economics, philosophy and musical composition at Columbia University in New York, where he subsequently lectures in logic, philosophy of economics and the history of thought. He once received a Grammy Showcase Award for new artists and in-between moments he continues to create experimental music, and now he's director of Design Strategy at... a very large Finnish corporation.
